Middle School No. 2 in Namysłów

Middle School No. 2 in Namysłów was established in 1999 as a result of introducing a new system school reform.

Our school is located in the south-west of Poland with about 300 students.
The vision of our school is preparing to live in a united Europe, bringing up creative people, open-minded, enterprising, informed and confident moving in the world of values and able to make the right choices.

We are the school in which the student's skills priorities are:
  1. Knowledge and skills necessary to complete junior high school and continue their education.
  2. Communication skills:
    • verbal communication in both Polish and foreign languages,
    • the ability to search and analyze information,
    • the ability to use a computer.
  3. Social skills:
    • ability to work in a group and in the classroom,
    • accountability - taking responsibility for the execution of tasks and the ability to bear the consequences,
    • Interpersonal communication - assertiveness and conflict resolution skills.
  4. Psychological skills and dispositions:
    • self-esteem,
    • self-awareness,
    • self-discipline,
    • motivation.

In all classes of our school two languages are taught: English and German.
English is realized in three hours, and studying in the class of the English language is extended to 6 hours.
German language is taught 2 hours per week in each class.

Language learning takes place in groups according to skill level. Students admitted to our school always write a leveling test so that teachers could divide them into groups. In foreign language classes the teachers use different teaching methods to make the lessons more attractive (e.g. listening to songs and watching movies in foreign languages, the use of multimedia technology in teaching). Students have the opportunity to participate in various competitions, extracurricular activities developing communication skills and preparing for Gimnazjum Exam, expanding the knowledge of the culture and history of the German and English-speaking countries. We also provide assistance to students who have difficulties in the assimilation of the aforementioned languages.

After-School Activities

Apart from normal lessons we also have after-school activities e.g.:
  • Drama Club
  • Fishing Club
  • European Club
  • Sports Club

Teachers do their best to make the students stay at school. Also there are after-school activities which are helpful for weaker students to improve the learning.
