Duhovka High School is a private Czech-English grammar school in Prague 7, offering eight-year full-time and four-year distance study. It uses the principles of Montessori pedagogy and is based on respect, cooperation and creativity. It connects individual subjects and grades through practical projects. A team of Czech and English-speaking teachers guide students to independence and personal responsibility.
We teach students to think in context and help them to recognize and develop their strengths. We believe we best prepare students for the future by stimulating their lifelong interest in learning and working on themselves. In our school, they experience a friendly, positive and open approach. Classes are divided into three phases - learning about the theory, practical application of the acquired information and defending and presenting the student’s own conclusions.
We want our students to be comfortable with themselves in the future, to be prepared for change and to know how to cope with things in life. Studies are completed with an internationally recognized IB diploma or Czech state diploma, depending on the student's choice.

Eight-year Czech-English High School in Prague
How do we work
The Duhovka High School offers its students a quality study program in an environment that promotes cooperation, creativity and the search for intrinsic motivation. Teachers are professionals with many years of experience who are open to students and their interests. We create a friendly and inspiring space for students to develop their skills and abilities.
Education in English
English lessons are built on the Czech grammar school curriculum combined with age-relevant literary texts. In the last two grades, students prepare for the internationally recognized IB diploma exams. Subjects are taught in both Czech and English. Students use English as a communication tool with their teachers and classmates.
Duhovka High School is an IB World School and offers an academic program called the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP). Our school also shares a common philosophy with other IB World Schools - a commitment to a high quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students.
Eight-year full-time study
Our eight-year programme for children aged 11 to 19 is inspired by the Montessori method of education and employs student choice, working in age-mixed groups and connecting subjects in practical projects. Students take courses in both Czech and English with native speakers and consider English a natural communication tool.
Four-year distance study
This program, which allows you to study remotely in eight blocks of classes combined with homework, is an ideal way to supplement your high school education. The programme includes an individual pace for students, who are accompanied by teachers in the form of consultations. Studies are completed with the Czech graduation exam (maturita). Our distance students are very successful and many of them go on to study at university.

"We help our students discover and develop their overt and hidden talents, encouraging their self-confidence and belief in their own abilities. Our goal is for Duhovka graduates to be well-balanced individuals who carry a lifelong love for education, navigate a changing world, are ready to face challenges and have a desire to build a better world."
„Duhovka gave me an insight and a world perspective that I probably would not have gotten in any other educational system. Besides, I have found many unusual new friendships in these 5 years, which I believe will continue to enrich me. After graduating from Duhovka I decided to go to Universidad La Salle Ramon Llull - architecture. Duhovka taught me first of all to be self-sufficient in my future studies.“
„Duhovka High School enabled me to finish my high school diploma by distance learning. The two years that I traveled to Duhovka from the neighbourhood of Šumperk were very pleasant. I really liked the teaching staff and the friendliness with which we were treated as distance students. I plan to study at Charles University at the Faculty of Education. I am studying biology, geology and environmental science with a focus on education. Duhovka, in particular, enabled me to graduate remotely and properly prepared me for it. It also prepared me very well for the next step in my university education.“
„Studying at Duhovka gave me a lot. I met excellent professors and had the opportunity to look into a wide range of interesting disciplines within a varied curriculum. At Duhovka I met friends who are now some of my closest. Distance learning gave me the time flexibility necessary to manage work and chronic illness, while strengthening my organizational skills and appetite for self-study. The years of study at Duhovka were wonderful and I look back on them with pleasure. Duhovka with its comprehensive curriculum, emphasis on independence and perseverance in studies, prepared me perfectly for university, so now I can study two dream majors - Psychology and Special Education. “
„Duhovka gave me friendship, useful experiences, incredible experiences and humbleness. After graduating at Duhovka I decided to study Film Production at UTB, Faculty of Multimedia Communication.“
„I would say that Duhovka gave me a rather unique perspective and approach to the study itself. (I wasn't exactly the studious type before). It taught me how to work with the time I have for a given task and a great ability for self-reflection. My education at Duhovka helped me to understand that it is not always best to memorize things but that I have to look for the context of things to help me understand the issue as a whole. I am now finishing the College of Business, majoring in flight operations and am at the end of theoretical training to become a transport pilot.“
„Duhovka taught me to face various obstacles and not to give up on my goals and dreams. I was supported on my journey by a great team that was ready to help us at any time.“
„Duhovka taught me how to navigate in today's world of the internet and information. It taught me how to work with text and write long, coherent essays and texts. It also helped me a lot with languages because of the bilingual environment. I chose ČVUT - Building Engineering as my next path.“
„Apart from my excellent English, self-discipline and diligence, I also take away a great many friends from different classes and even from the teachers. My path has led me to the University of Economics, majoring in Finance.“
