Prishtina High School was started more than 11 years ago to provide Kosovar Albanians with a real chance at a good education that would provide them a “real chance at success.” This small country of less than 2 million suffered a lot under a war 20 years ago. We view our school as a strategic effort of nation building and an opportunity to be a “salt and light” witness to our students.
We equip students to be responsible citizens and active learners by providing a university preparatory education in a safe, caring, and diverse academic community.
Our vision is to provide the best American-style education possible in Kosovo in order for active learners to reach high academic standards that prepare them for a university of their choice.
To accomplish this:
We provide students with resources they need to develop appropriate grade-level skills, understanding and performance in all academic areas.
We provide parents with multiple ways to examine and discuss the academic and social progress of their children.
We provide teachers with professional training and resources they need for exemplary teaching.
We provide opportunities for our school to interact with the larger community of Kosovo (other schools, community leaders, businesses and social organizations), so that our students participate in a more comprehensive education.
We provide a pleasant, caring, stimulating environment for students to achieve full potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical and moral development so that they can make their best contribution to society.
