STUDENTS' AND PARENTS' IMPRESSIONS
WHAT DO PEOPLE WHO ARE PART OF THE MOST INNOVATIVE EDUCATION SYSTEM SAY ABOUT SAVREMENA?
The impressions of our students and parents are the information we follow with great attention. We are proud of what our students and parents say about Savremena schools.
Have a look and read what students of Primary School Savremena and Savremena gimnazija, the cutting-edge educational system in the region, as well as their parents say about us:
The way we learn in Savremena is the best and truly different!
We were so happy when we learnt that Primary School Savremena opened. I had already known about Savremena gimnazija and its standards so I was convinced that the primary school would have the same standards!
After the very first conversation, we decided on Savremena, because we were thrilled by what it has to offer. We spent quite some time asking around and in the end came to the conclusion that Savremena is truly different when compared to other schools. We chose the Combined program, as my son is already good at English and in this way he will master it while gaining knowledge based on two educational curricula – the national and Cambridge ones. I believe that this is best for our son and an excellent preparation for his successful future.
What I find important is that my child goes to school with a smile on his face, that he can fit in and find good friends. As Savremena provides so much opportunity for socialising, learning and activities in a fun way, I can already see my son looking forward to being in Savremena. I especially like that the teachers at Savremena monitor the interests of each individual child, encouraging their creativity, thus enabling them to develop according to their affinities. I also like that there are so many extracurricular activities which provide different and exciting experiences and socialising.
I can’t wait for September!
I’ve decided to enroll in Primary School Savremena and I’ve also decided to design robots when I grow up. I am sure of that.
I can’t wait for Septembar when I will start going to Savremena. When I learn while playing, like today, I’d stay in school all day!
Maksim Joksimović, a Year 1 student of Primary School Savremena
In Savremena we have found all we have ever looked for in a school
The lessons are very interesting and interactive. I especially like that the teachers are spontaneous in their approach to and communication with children. This is precisely what makes this school stand out from others.
I was present at the maths lesson and got the confirmation of what I’ve been telling – they were doing the maths problems which were above the Year 4 level and, by applying a very interesting approach, they were able to find the solutions they were not expected to.
What we have expected from a school is to observe the curriculum defined by the Ministry, but, on the other hand, to be different, more open to children who want to communicate and grow in different directions, and that exactly is what we have found here.
Boris Baketarić, Mateja’s dad
OUR TEACHERS ARE UNPARALLELED
My teacher is the best in the world!
The same goes for my daycare teacher!
Mina Stojiljković, a Year 2 student of Primary School Savremena
Safety and healthy habits of our children are guaranteed at Savremena
What I consider the top priority is the health and safety of a child, and the environment and rapport towards students at Savremena are such that a child develops in the healthiest possible atmosphere. This kind of approach from the very beginning means that the success of this school and one of our children is guaranteed. Every precaution is taken at Savremena so there is no fear of peer violence and discrimination.
I especially like that healthy meals are provided for children. When children learn to take care of their diet and develop interest in sport in their childhood, they will adopt healthy habits for life.
Savremena offers a lot of extracurricular activities, children get together and the teachers are fond of them, taking care of each student individually. That means a lot to me.
Besides all that Savremena offers to its students, it has a fantastic curriculum which secures a prosperous future to our children. All of these made me decide and enroll my child in this school.
Jasna Jeremić, Tijana’s mum
I like the looks of the school so much
I like the classrooms at Savremena a lot and, generally, the looks of the school. Besides, I like robotics so much and I am happy that I can learn all about it in primary school.
Mina Subotić, a Year 1 student of Primary School Savremena
PERSONALIZED APPROACH TO EACH CHILD
I like very much that there is a personalised approach to each child at Savremena, and that they get to know the children through some form of practical work and conversation. At Savremena, teachers monitor students’ interests, thus helping them to take the path appropriate at that particular moment, for each child individually, according to their preferences and specific traits.
What I expect from Savremena is to help my child expand his horizons given his current knowledge and abilities. All the knowledge that Savremena offers, he can apply in a practical way, to make his life, schooling and work easier.
Jasmina Gredelj, Mateja’s mum
THE PROBLEMS ARE SOLVED IN A PEACEFUL WAY
The teachers are not strict.
If we do something that doesn’t deserve commendation, we are told to go and sit at one desk, to sit there for a while and think about what we have done. And then, we can go back, talk about it and say we are sorry.
Adam Ghorayeb, a Year 5 student of Primary School Savremena
THE SCHOOL WHERE YOU LEARN ABOUT LIFE THROUGH FUN
Children come to school relaxed and that’s the whole point. They come there in order to learn how to learn. Then, they learn about the relations in life in a practical way, which is simply the best approach. Actually, they learn while having fun.
Nives Popović Ivačković, Teodor’s mum
The whole educational system is the positive one
We are completely satisfied with this educational system, especially with our teacher. So our impressions are more than positive.
Jelena Stamenić, Petar’s mum
I will acquire knowledge of IT in Savremena
I’m thrilled that I’ll acquire knowledge of IT as I’ve heard that in Savremena IT is taught from day 1! I like that we have tablets, VR headsets and robots, and that we learn all the time while playing.
Aleksandar Nenezić, a Year 5 students of Primary School Savremena
The children have learnt a lot of things through a fantastic platform
Our impressions are truly great as you provide a fantastic platform and the children have learnt a lot. They could go through the apps and emails. Our teacher was available literally round the clock. The students could access all the materials, they didn’t miss anything and they learnt so much.
Jelena Marković, Aleksa’s mum
I CAN COUNT ON ASSISTANCE WHENEVER I NEED IT
My teacher is so nice. She helps us whenever we need some help.
She is so good. I couldn’t wish for a better teacher.
Hajdi Gajić, a Year 3 student of Primary School Savremena
I am delighted with Savremena!
We enjoy it so much at Savremena! I am delighted with our school, classrooms and technology that help us study.
But, what I like best is that I’m going to have super cool company when I start going to school.
We have already become friends, I’ve met children from my class, as well as the headteacher, and I’m very happy and excited because of that. Everything is brilliant!
Tijana Jeremić, a Year 3 student of Primary School Savremena
We enrolled the children in for the bilingual education
The Cambridge program in English and Serbian is the reason why we all have enrolled our children. I think they do it really well.
Tatjana Popovina, Sara Zoe and David Leon’s mum
MY FRIENDS SUPPORT ME ALL THE TIME
My classmates are so supportive.
They always help me and that’s what I like most about them.
Itan Hays, a Year 2 student of Primary School Savremena
Our Ana thrives, Savremena is something truly best we have in Serbia
Savremena is a first-class school and something truly best that we have in Serbia. We are really pleased with the school, conditions, treatment, approach… It is worth every penny, and I have never invested money in a better way. Our Ana thrives and everyone can notice that, and some things in life are priceless.
Lidija Milanović, Ana’s mum
I AM DELIGHTED TO BE A PART OF SAVREMENA
I couldn’t have guessed that such a school existed in our country, now I am thrilled that it does exist and that I am a part of it.
Jovan Popović, the student of Savremena
Beyond our expectations
I can freely say that it has exceeded my expectations. Since we’ve heard about Savremena gimnazija before, we’ve had some ideas what the school might be like, but it turned out to be beyond our expectations.
Bojan Petrović, Konstantin’s dad
I could hardly wait to set my foot in this school
I am very pleased and like it a lot. I was whining and moaning all the holiday, praying for the holiday to be over so I could go back to school. I could hardly wait to set my foot in the school and see how beautiful it was.
Lazar Bulat, a student
Savremena school meets all the world standards
It was a challenge to find a suitable school for my children and we were looking for the one which will meet all the world standards, in terms of safety, education, technology support etc. Savremena was the school which provided all of these and met the requirements. It is truly fantastic. I was there while it was in the process of construction, and was absolutely fascinated. The world class school.
Jelena Karleuša, Nika and Atina’s mum
What I like most about distance learning is that I can text my friends…I like it because it’s live…he speaks to you in real time.
Bojan Nešić, a student
I don’t know a child as happy as she is
You can’t top this level of organisation. I can’t remember a child in my neighbourhood, where I live, or in my distant family or among friends, that is as happy as she is.
Sanja Trikić, Milica’s mum
Hangouts conversations come second in fun after Live lessons
You can take part in live lessons. Real-time, truly. And what’s most important and really fun is that during and after the live lessons you can get in touch with your teacher or your friends through Google Hangouts.
Mateja Baketarić, a student
Altogether a different story compared to a state school
We are delighted, truly, with the school, teacher, friends. It is a completely new experience for us. We used to be in a state school, we transferred to Year 3 and it has been an altogether different story.
Sandra Rodić, Mihajlo’s mum
A test seems like a computer game
I never feel the pressure in this school – Wow! I’ve got a test tomorrow and because we do those quizzes that our teachers design for us, it seems as if I’m playing a computer game, while, actually, I am doing a test. I like distance learning a lot as I am not alone during the live lessons and I can send messages to my friends who I can see during a Hangouts video call. It means so much to me as I play tennis and could be at a tennis tournament or in a park and I can join Live and watch. Also, the teachers are so dedicated to children. I’m going to be the Number 1 at tennis, so I’ll be able to attend school, watch my lessons from everywhere and complete my school tasks.
Vuk Pantić Crnčević, a student
Small classes mean each student is given enough attention
The organisation and lessons are really good; I like it that the classes are small and more attention is given to each individual student. An individual’s personality is supported as the teacher can observe her students’ specific talents and so they thrive.
Bojan Simić, Ognjen’s dad
SAVREMENA IS BRILLIANT, I WILL ALWAYS RECOMMEND IT
Savremena is brilliant! I will always recommend this school as it has a fantastic concept, a lot of versatile activities and offers possibilities for personality development, boosts interests and helps students realise who they are. My son is currently in Year 1 of Savremena and I believe at that age students are still not aware of all the benefits they have.
I am sure that in senior classes students’ potentials will come to the fullest and the students will be able to benefit from all the great possibilities this school offers to them. On the other hand, my older daughter is in Year 4 at another school and is fully aware of all the advantages that Savremena provides to its students. Therefore, she is sorry that she couldn’t enroll in Savremena before and take advantage of all that the school offers to its students.
It is great that Savremena has designed the system which implies that children should rely on their own potentials while they can always get in touch with their teachers for consultation. I’m convinced that Savremena will become a part of its students’ lives which they wouldn’t like to forget. I wish Savremena all the best in the future, above all good hard-working and healthy students and teachers. Besides, it should carry out all that has been planned in this wonderful school and remain successful as it has been so far.
Desa Đorđević – Milutinović, Nikola’s mum
SINCERELY, I AM THRILLED WITH SAVREMENA
Literally, Savremena offers everything that a parent committed to his or her child’s growth wants to hear. For my son, this school is an excellent preparation for the future, for studying abroad. Being able to improve his knowledge of English – I think it’s perfect.
Savremena is different from other schools, it has met all of my criteria and hopes that I as a parent have, meaning my child will receive proper education. I am thrilled with Savremena, sincerely.
Tatjana Kavazović, Andrija’s mum
SAVREMENA IS ALL THAT I’VE ALWAYS WANTED FOR MY CHILD
I think that Savremena is sensitive to children’s needs, the needs of the society and it has developed a really modern educational system, implementing technology that enables visual presentation in lessons, which makes it easier for students to grasp and connect the materials they have learnt about. The materials will be remembered and will be applicable the next day.
Dragana Matejić, Marija’s mum
THE SCHOOL WAS FUNCTIONING SPLENDIDLY AT THE TIME OF CORONA
Sincerely, I was really worried how my daughter would accept school at the time of corona, as they had long breaks during the preschool year.
However, everything went on smoothly and we are truly delighted.
Brankica Stanković, Sara’s mum
THANKS TO THIS APPROACH, THE CHILDREN FEEL LIBERATED
The fact that the teachers explain again and again what students haven’t understood and they also have time to fill all the gaps in the knowledge, automatically makes children feel liberated.
Nikolaos Petronikolos, Asterios’s dad
THE SCHOOL THAT HAS MET OUR EXPECTATIONS
Savremena school offers my child what I have expected a school should offer.
Dragana Nikolić, Teodor’s mum
WE ARE HAPPY AS WE TRANSFERRED FROM ANOTHER SCHOOL
This is a new school, new environment, new experience and we are satisfied.
We really like it.
Ivan Vujović, Teodora’s dad
What is important for me is that my child finds learning easy and enjoyable
Predominantly, we have selected Primary School Savremena for our child because of the Combined program, meaning that students attend the Cambridge program combined with the national one. Besides, another thing that was important for us was the location and the environment, which are excellent.
With regard to education, what I find essential is that a child realises he learns for his own benefit and that is what matters; he realises he enjoys learning and going to school, discovering things and getting better and better; and he finds all of these easy and enjoyable. I am positive that’s the way things will happen at Savremena.
Đurđa Joksimović, Maksim’s mum
WE RECOMMEND SAVREMENA TO ALL
We tell everyone that we honestly wish every child should go to a school such as this one is.
Anabela Atijas, Blankica’s mum
THERE IS AN EXCELLENT BALANCE IN THE LESSONS AND THERE IS THE EMOTIONAL SUPPORT FOR THE CHILDREN
I have noticed that there is an excellent balance between the curriculum and the way the students are guided, the emotional support they receive and the feeling of community they have. I do appreciate such development and guidance.
Itan doesn’t want to go back home and I think it’s wonderful that you have the school students want to be in. We always struggle to take him home at the end of a school day.
Michael Hays, Itan’s dad
THE SCHOOL PROMOTES DEVELOPMENT OF ADDITIONAL SKILLS AND THE STUDENTS OFTEN SPEND TIME IN THE OUTDOORS
Naturally, the children here learn basic things as well – mathematics, writing, reading etc. But this school promotes development of additional skills. Developer’s thinking, for example.
The second day of the school year the children were taken on a field trip. We think it’s a fantastic approach. Not to scare children with the novelty of a classroom. Thus, from the very beginning, the impression of the school was positive one.
Jelena Manić Petronikolos, Asterios’s mum
DURING THE PANDEMIC WE LEARNT THANKS TO THE STREAM
We think that our first grade was terrific, given the challenges with the corona and overall situation. The school supported successfully those who didn’t want to have face-to-face lessons. We had the live stream directly from the classroom.
Ana Smiljanić, Teodora’s mum
OUR DAUGHTER HAS THRIVED IN THIS SCHOOL
Our daughter Zoja has transferred to Primary School Savremena from the prestigious International school Danube in Vienna. From Day 1 she was truly happy and overwhelmed with impressions. The adaptation to the new environment and different curriculum was smooth, and excellent results have been coming one after another.
My husband and I are really satisfied with our choice of school. We would especially like to commend her class teacher Željko Žarić. His approach to children is exceptional, filled with enthusiasm and love for children, and that is something you can see right away.
We would like to express how pleased we are with all of the school staff: from the always kind gentleman who takes care of our children’s safety and helpful girls at the reception desk to the cook, who warms up children’s hearts with a cup of hot tea. The teachers put a lot of effort and provide attention for the children, which is clearly visible through children’s success.
It is obvious to us that our daughter has thrived in her new school. What clearly shows how satisfied she is, is the fact that she could have continued her education abroad earlier this year, but she decided to stay in Belgrade, because, above all, she is happy in this school environment.
Tamara Drašković, Zoja’s mum
