Everything is important to us in school and students: knowledge, erudition, creativity, scientific, sports, and musical achievements, their spiritual potential, and as a result - their personal, human self-identification in the demanding competitive realities of the contemporary world.
Mathematical and Linguistic School «Samai» stood at the origins of private school education in the Republic of Kazakhstan. It has been working successfully in pre-school and school education in our country since it opened its doors to students in Almaty and Almaty region in 1998. Over the years of development in the competitive educational sphere, our school achieved growth of indicators of scientific and technical competence of students as it has strongly linked to the Sustainable Development Goals.
Our graduates have high results at the Unified National Test annually. We have the leading position in a school rating on the number of the winners of the state and internal university grants of prestigious state and private universities of Kazakhstan and abroad. Our school is proud of its graduates awarded the Altyn Belgi (Golden Badge) for outstanding academic performance, certificates, and special certificates.
Each employee of Samai School, no matter whether a pre-school teacher, a secondary school teacher, or a specialist of supplementary educational and other courses – is determined to be highly effective in teaching activities based on the principles of humanism, professional ethics, and competence. The result of the quality level of teachers is their participation in the state certification of school education to improve and confirm their qualifications (not always practised in private school education). The pedagogical staff consists mainly of specialists of the highest and first category with proven positive teaching and methodological experience. They are the Honored Worker of Education of the Republic of Kazakhstan, PhDs, winners of national and creative competitions, authors of book publications and methodological works among teachers, and teachers awarded the Excellence in Public Education badge.
Optimally harmonizing the positive experience of traditional and innovative pedagogical technologies, the school community organizes educational activities based on democratic pedagogy of creative partnership and cooperation between students, teachers, and parents. Everything is important to us in school and students: knowledge, erudition, creativity, scientific, sports, and musical achievements, their spiritual potential, and as a result – their personal, human self-identification in the demanding competitive realities of the contemporary world.
To address these pedagogical tasks, we have created favourable conditions: the school has academic-corrective disciplines besides the mandatory academic subjects set by the State Standard of Education of the Republic of Kazakhstan. In order to develop the skills and abilities of free speech communication, the students study English in-depth, starting with the preparatory group; from the 1st grade, the students learn Chinese with a native speaker. In classes with Kazakh, as the language of instruction, they study Russian in-depth and study Kazakh, in classes with Russian, as the language of instruction, and together they study English in a sufficiently earnest way, thus ensuring real trilingualism in school. In computer science lessons, pupils in junior classes are acquainted with computer literacy basics, and high school students develop multimedia presentations, electronic newspapers, and winners of international and national competitions on virtual projects.
In order to develop and improve the creative potential of schoolchildren, Samai School uses optional courses and elective courses to meet the needs of students and their parents. The atmosphere of high art reigns at the piano studio. The children have introduced the traditions of Kazakh folk music in individual lessons on dombra and kobyz. Flexible and graceful dancers under the guidance of an experienced choreographer perform classical and modern dances at holidays and away concerts.
We have the necessary conditions in the school: there is a gym, the section for karate and taekwondo is training at the request of children, our athletes have participated and won many times in friendly matches with other school teams in football, and other sports games. In addition, for many years, the school has successfully organized a chess club, and our students are constant participants in city chess tours and have titles.
