Class of 2023
Choosing an international school in Prague was a difficult decision but I believe I made the right one when I chose to join American Academy. Before coming to American Academy I saw school as a formality that I had to do but didn't enjoy at all.
American Academy changed my mindset about school with its amazing teachers and their practical learning environment. The teachers are so friendly and approachable that it's very easy to learn and ask questions without having to worry about being wrong. American Academy doesn't just focus on exams and grades but also on things that will help you grow as a person, such as presentation skills, communication skills, etc.
In the last five years of studying at American Academy, I have enjoyed every moment of it. This school has helped me overcome many obstacles which have made me into a better person, and I will never forget the amazing experience I have had at American Academy.
Class of 2029
I like American Academy, because it builds character. I joined the fiber arts club, where I get to socialize with other kids while we talk. I love all of my classes. Most of the students are nice to everyone. At first, I had a hard time making friends, but then I made all of the friends I need.
I am learning a lot, and we have extra curricular activities such as Theme Week, Secret Santa, and a Valentine’s Day Post Office. I like that the students can make their own clubs, if they have five people who want to join. I like that the teachers are always very friendly and help the students all the time. In conclusion, the school is amazing and I enjoy coming.

I love this school because here the teachers are so funny and I like them. I like that there is no homework. I also like our math lessons because they are so fun. It is not like how they are in the Czech schools or somewhere else. Here there are so many kids from other countries and I like to be friends with them. They are so funny and happy.
Class of 2023
I chose AAB because I could transfer from 8th grade right into high school and it gave me the chance to maintain and improve my English skills.
I am extremely happy with my choice because the friendly family atmosphere makes my high school experience enjoyable and fun. The teachers' approach and the curriculum are very individualized and the school supports their students' interests and hobbies. All of the classes are very creative and everyone can find something they love. I love the option of online classes because it gives me the chance to manage my own time and be responsible for my work. This year the school even offers an improvisation and healthy cooking class.
I am the president of the student council and we are given a lot of freedom with our ideas for the school. We can bring up concerns and renew school policies, if it seems fit, and all of us have the chance to bring up new activities and theme days to the student body.
Every day I am happier that I chose this school.
Class of 2032
My favorite thing about this school is learning so many different things and having friends from different countries. We have lots of friends and everyone is so kind to each other. I love Math and English, and that we get to put our emotions into paintings.
My favorite experience at American Academy was the holiday feast with all of the teachers and students together. We got to enjoy foods from Greece, India, UK, Ukraine, and the USA – and I got to try mac and cheese!
Class of 2031
American Academy in Brno has a loyal and friendly community. It's a fun and happy school. I love every lesson because each one is different and I discover something new. It's the best school in Brno! You get to learn English in a friendly community, and it trains strong and smart students. It's not just classes, it's like being part of a family. It's also different from other places because it's very modern and exciting. We use modern technologies.
The thing I really enjoyed was my birthday celebration because even without gifts I felt so happy.
Marco, Class of 2024
My time at American Academy has been exciting, but has also changed how I think about school. The main difference between AAZ and my old schools is just the learning; the teachers all display kindness and passion to enlighten us with their knowledge.
We were all greeted with open arms which was something many of us had never experienced. And as for the school itself, with such a diverse group of pupils attending, each with their own unique quirks, it’s easy to find your place, make new friends, and learn about various cultures all whilst sharing laughs.
After being in six different schools, I can say wholeheartedly say that you will never find another school like American Academy, or any teachers more caring than the ones here. It is another place I can call home.
Paula, Class of 2026
My entire life, all I've known is "School is your responsibility, and you must treat it like a chore." My parents always told me that by not going to school, I'm not only missing out on that test, that oral exam, that history lesson, but I am also missing out on everything else that actually makes school a good place: I am missing out on friendships, laughter and bonding with my classmates.
Although I knew the concept, I could never quite grasp it while going to a Croatian school. I never wanted to accept the fact that I have to go to school. I didn't want to accept it, so I tried to avoid school as much as possible.
But that has changed drastically ever since I started attending classes here. School isn't just learning anymore – I actually enjoy coming to school now. The staff and teachers have created this warm environment for all of us to feel safe and to make school seem like less of a chore and more like something fun. We are constantly being taught to be the best versions of ourselves and are being prepared for life in the real world that's ahead of us. I've felt welcomed in this school since the first day I stepped foot in it, and it's safe to say that I would consider AAZ my second home.
Study AMERICAN ACADEMY
Students in the 1st to 5th grade take courses in English, mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, art, physical education and library skills. The curriculum is presented entirely in English, which prepares students for a smooth transition to our Middle School.
The Middle School program corresponds to grades 6 - 8 in the Czech, Slovak and Croatian educational system. It offers students a diverse range of subjects on which they can exercise a certain amount of choice so that they can focus more on the areas that really interest them.
High School students work to develop their strengths and focus on subjects that prepare them to study their dream disciplines at quality universities. High School has four grades and corresponds to the Czech 9th grade of elementary to 3rd grade of high school, so American Academy students leave school a year earlier than is common in the Czech Republic.
The STEM Program is available on Prague and Zagreb campus and is designed for Middle School and High School students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. In this specialized educational program, we acquaint our students with up-to-date technologies, informatics and scientific methods and at the same time show them how to apply them in everyday life.
American Academy is a school that educates leaders for the future. With our unique blend of American style curriculum and project-based learning, we teach more than academic knowledge. We put a significant emphasis on developing the social and practical skills necessary for a successful life in the 21st century. American Academy is a place where students are able to explore and maximize their potential.
