Choosing American Academy was one of the best choices I ever made! I chose this school mainly because I want to have a great future and I believe that this school can provide and prepare me to get to a great university.
This school gives me an opportunity to learn what I actually like and may find useful in the future. American Academy motivates me to get better grades and work harder, and because of this I also have great results, straight A's on my report cards.
I am a very busy person and I have 4 trainings a week and competitions very often and I am still able to manage the schedule. This school is teaching me useful things in a practical way: by making presentations, making successful projects and not reading everything from books and listening to Czech teachers who just lecture their old high school notes. I contributed to our school project: Haunted House. I was elected for the Marketing manager of this project. Because of this project I learned the basics of marketing, how to persuade people and how to deal with people.

I moved to Prague from India to obtain proper education. The AAP is the best school I have ever seen. I like the modern premises and subjects based on real life.
Every single topic taught in this school is oriented on its practical aspects. For example, during the thematic week, we learned how to calculate area and volume because we needed to calculate the volume of a room that we needed to fill with artificial fog for our Halloween Haunted House project. Our teachers always put an emphasis on showing us how the current topic corresponds with the mathematical theory and what its real-life applicability is.

I chose American Academy in Prague because their system of teaching students is completely different than other Czech high schools. Students at the American Academy in Prague have a lot more freedom and a lot more time for studying. This school proves that learning can be enjoyable and sometimes even fun.
I went to school in Sri Lanka for about 5 years, and there I have learned to speak proper English. When I came back to the Czech Republic, I saw that the level of English at Czech schools isn't good enough for me, so when I was searching for a new high school, I knew that American Academy is going to be the one. I was pleasantly surprised by the teachers and their friendly approach to the students. The teachers at American Academy are always willing to help and to try to find the best solution for you personally. All the students are extremely friendly and surprisingly enough, they come from all around the world.
Overall I think that choosing American Academy as my school is one of the best decisions in my life, and I honestly think that after graduating, I will be properly prepared for life.

I am Hungarian and American. American Academy is providing me the opportunity to continue my education at a high level and in a friendly environment. My teachers are very kind and helpful.
My best experience in the school has been learning Chinese. Ms. Shuang is a very experienced teacher and has made me love the language so much. I speak 3 languages already (Hungarian, Czech and English). Spanish is the new language I am currently learning and I hope soon I will have the opportunity to perfect it. We have many projects in classes too, and I enjoy working on projects both in teams and on my own.
Another thing the school does is Theme Week, which is awesome. All the kids from the different classrooms are mixed together, so you get to meet kids you don't normally have class with and work together for 1 week. The older kids have a chance to become friends with us (middle school kids) and they are our heroes! It is great to be around the wiser kids. Learning together in small groups is very helpful.
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 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.
