Aims and values
Providing excellent learning conditions the school aims for its learners to:

We help to make the right choices
The school offers consultations with school psychologists from Poradnia Psychologiczno-Pedagogiczna “Osiek” (Psychological-pedagogical counselling service “Osiek”) to recognise learners' interests and abilities. The school caters for individual needs by creating a relevant curriculum in which students can actively participate. Analysing students' marks, final tests and examination results as well as their participation in extra-curricular activities enables us to help our learners to plan their future education which they can continue at our Sopockie Liceum Autonomiczne (Autonomic High School of Sopot).
Apart from assisting students, teachers and parents, Poradnia Psychologiczno-Pedagogiczna “Osiek” (Psychological-pedagogical counselling service “Osiek”) organizes regular classes teaching team work, communication skills, learning techniques, self-esteem, stress management, career planning, addiction prevention etc.
