We are delighted of your interest to join REAL School Budapest!
Applications are now open for the 2020/21 school year. Limited places are also available for an immediate start.
We are looking for families who believe in entrepreneurial, arts and project-based learning to equip children with skills and mindsets to thrive in a yet unknown future. Families who value self-awareness and reflection, intellectual curiosity, empathy, and caring for our world will fit well in the School.
Just as importantly, we are looking for those who are excited to help build a community, who understand the entrepreneurial challenges of a young school and are inspired to create a diverse and positive environment.
We aim to build a culturally and socioeconomically diverse community. Such a community pushes students to learn how to incorporate multiple viewpoints and experiences; it enables them to honor what is unique within themselves; and it develops the empathy, social agility, and cross-cultural competence that is essential to life in the twenty-first century.
The primary language of teaching at the REAL School is English. While the School welcomes students with all English abilities, preference is given to those with strong English skills, so others could learn from them.
For the 2019/2020 school year, the School welcomes students from ages 6 to 13. The School will grow with the children until they are 18 to provide an all-through learning experience. Students will spend their days in multi-age groups. The age groups are flexible, based on your child’s needs.
How to apply
The admissions process is as follows:
Please get to know the School. Download our brochure, contact us, check out our youtube channel, research Green School Bali as our background and inspiration, like our Facebook page, and consult the Fees schedule. Please note that the minimum enrolment is for one year.
We ask you to fill out the online interest form, to ensure that we are aware of your family's basic information and your inquiry. Our admissions officer will get in touch with you swiftly.
Schedule a tour and a discussion with our admissions team and our founders, to get to know each other better, preferably together with your child(ren). For families outside of Hungary this may be over a video call.
As the next step, we invite you to apply through our online application system and submit supporting documentation. This is pretty straightforward: basic data, schooling experience to date, any special needs or issues to be aware of, and questions on motivation for wishing to join the School. The application fee is waived for 2019/20 school year enrolments.
Should you have any issues or questions during your application process, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following the review of the application, we might invite your child(ren) to spend a taster day at the School, to get a feel for the learning experience and the community. They will normally be able to participate in all our activities and projects. This experience can help both your family and the School to make a decision whether REAL School is the right place for your child(ren). For families who are not yet in Budapest, we have a creative exercise in place to gain a bit better insight of the child and the family.
Once a formal offer of a place has been made, parents are asked to agree to the contract, and pay the registration fee to guarantee a place.
