I am pleased to welcome at the website of our school “Turan Lyceum”. Throughout a period over 20 years, our Lyceum, being a part of Turan educational corporation, like any secondary education institution, guarantees the fulfillment of tasks stipulated by state compulsory standards.
Still, what makes our Lyceum different from other schools of the city?
You can have clear idea about it after studying the materials of the site. I will focus only on some points. To begin with, the main principle of the lyceum’s pedagogical system is student-oriented approach. Highly qualified pedagogical staff of the lyceum, the scientists of the university, as well as lots of services of Turan corporation, set the goal to reveal and develop child’s intellectual, creative, physical and social abilities, and put all their efforts on it.
First, we have created cultural and educational environment that provides all conditions for versatile development of our students. Safety and comfort, health-saving technologies, high level of facilities and equipment can easily be noticed while getting acquainted with our lyceum.
Linguistic skills of our students are much higher than of most of their peers. To achieve this, were implemented special educational projects in Kazakh, Russian, and English. For example, school’s “Speaking club” has close cooperation with the international language school “Interpress International House”; and English lessons are conducted with a native speaker. The school was granted status of Cambridge English Exam Preparation Center with the right to use digital logo in 2018. Pupils of grades 10-11 study courses of Business Communication and International Relations and Multilateral Diplomacy.
Nowadays one cannot be successful without having sufficient skills in information technologies. Realizing this, we involve our students in innovative projects, such as “3D-modeling, 3D-design, 3D printing” (on the basis of the City Center for New Technologies) and the project “International Engineering and Technology Cluster for Informatics: Russia-Kazakhstan”. We have established cooperation with mathematical department of the correspondence school of the specialized educational and scientific center of Novosibirsk State University.
Our Lyceum operates as a full-day school, providing extracurricular classes in different areas. Most popular are classes of robotics, choreography, singing, chess, piano, as well as drama club and art studio. In the afternoon self-training classes are conducted, where students do their homework under the teacher’s guidance.
Great attention is paid to the development of leadership skills of our students. High school students participate actively in annual international conference “Turan Model United Nations”, where topical international issues are discussed in the format of debates similar to the meetings of the UN committees. Our students develop social and business projects aimed at improving the surrounding environment. They are getting ready to change the world for the better.
We believe in their dream and make all possible to come it true.
