It was founded in 1995 as a sequence of “The Little Prince” Private Kindergarten, founded two years earlier. It provides modern secular education for children aged 7 to 15. The educational strategy is child-centred and is carried out using both traditional and innovative teaching methods, intertwined and well balanced.The school specialises in language teaching, namely English (starting in first grade with six classes per week) and Russian (with two classes per week), and adding French in fifth grade with four classes per week. Computer studies is also a core subject, starting from the primary school and following a fixed programme, preparing our students for the high school specialising in information technologies, also part of the same private educational institution.  The primary school (grades first - fourth) provides full-day instruction (8.30 - 16.30), including ten self-study classes per week, as well as additional activities - music, dance and theatre classes. The lower-secondary school (grades fifth to seventh) provides half-day instruction (8.30 - 15.00) with optional self-study classes till 17.00 o’clock.
