Frequently Asked Questions

What certificates does the school have?

Waldorf School “Prof. Nikolay Raynov” is licensed by the Bund der freien Waldorfschulen organization. You can see our name in the licensed schools list.

We also have an official school license issued by the Ministry of Education of Bulgaria.

How can I transfer my child to this school?

We have a series of admission interviews. Read more in the Admission section. In addition, the child spends a week as a guest-visitor in his or her future class.

For first-graders, the teachers will do a “school aptitude test” with the child to assess his or her individual readiness to start school.

How can I follow the current progress of my child?

We work with an electronic school journal system. Each parent can follow the latest progress of the child in that system.

How are the pupils prepared for their state-standardized tests?

The curriculum for the respective grades covers the material for the tests. This is done without any unnecessary stress for the children and without focusing solely on the final grade. It should be noted that the Waldorf system allows children to pick up quite well the curricula so that external evaluation, without being in the focus, doesn’t cause any trouble for the Waldorf graduates.

What is the approach of the Waldorf system towards electronic devices and digital media?

We recommend that children spend minimum amount of time with devices until the age of 12.
