Gymnasium “Our Future” is a private school licensed. Founded in 2014 in Kyiv, the Gymnasium was so successful that they had to open a Kharkiv branch in 2017 (video). The pupils are tutored in Ukrainian.
As of today, this is the only Muslim-founded gymnasium in Kharkiv. It’s not necessary, however, to be a Muslim in order to enroll — every child is equally welcome.
Individual approach for every child is the advantage of the private Gymnasium “Our Future”, where tutoring is given in classes of 5 to 15 kids. This allows to unlock each child’s creativity.
Besides the Gymnasium standard advantages, Kharkiv branch has some more: it occupies a separate building with a playground in the yard and plenty of green territory to run and walk and play around. There is a GYM, a canteen, and even a small mosque at the pupils’ disposal (on the 1st floor). And all that lies within 5 minutes walking distance from “Metallist” Stadium (Sportyvna Metro Station).
The teachers, besides having high professional qualification, are expected to help each child fulfil one’s personal and creative potential.
Gymnasium “Our Future” unites secular education and spiritual traditions. Advanced curriculum of Ukrainian language and history comes along with the thorough study of Arabic texts and complimentary lessons on Holy Qur’an and Islamic ethics, making a positive impact on the child’s intellect. Besides, Muslim tradition always inspires to seek more knowledge, gives the idea that general education isn’t enough. This inspires the child to learn something new every day.
All the subjects necessary for successful examination for the Secondary Education Certificate are taught in the Gymnasium, and learning Arabic and English is given special attention.
As of today, Kharkiv Branch of “Our Future” teaches three classes (one per each primary school grade). Still, the school has plenty of extra room, so they are planning to have all the 11 grades as soon as the classes are filled.
The Gymnasium offers demi-pension: halal meals and comfortable room where the child will enjoy staying during the day. After the classes are over, afterschool centre is available up to 4PM.
The Gymnasium has uniforms designed to provide options so that the kids had space for self-expression. The girls are expected to chose from dark-blue dress, dark-blue pinafore dress with a light blouse, or a set of dark-blue skirt and jacket combined with a light blouse. Wearing or not wearing either a kerchief or a headscarf is up to the schoolgirls and their parents to decide; the administration is tolerant to both options. As for the boys, they are expected to wear dark (dark-blue, black or dark-grey) trousers with a light shirt, combined with waistcoat (decorated with the school’s Logo) and a dark-blue jacket.
Every graduate will get a State Secondary Education Certificate and will be able to continue his education in any Higher Educational Institution.
