One Of The Best Schools In Baku

Visiting schools in different countries of the world can be much more interesting than looking at pictures on postcards. Today we’ll go to one of the oldest schools in Baku, Azerbaijan, and then compare it with a small provincial school in the south of the country.

The history of the school began 150 years ago with establishment of a benevolent association in 1861. In 1888 the school got a new building of a former hospital and expanded considerably.

In 1897 the association was modified into a secondary school intended for girls.

The place embraced two schools. One school number 132 practiced teaching in the Azerbaijani whereas pupils of the other school number 134 spoke Russian in classes.

The principal of the school says that in 2011 12 pupils from Baku were awarded golden medals for their achievements in studying and three of them were from school number 132-134 (today the large school consists of two united sectors).

Now the place is considered to be one of the best schools in the city.

Children study English and French.

    Beautiful school, sure out-shine elementary schools in L.A. On another subject, I thought all the kids looked the same.

    What amuses me, is this ‘number-naming’ culture, as in, not naming the schools after their distinctive suburbs, like in western countries.

    ‘So, where did you attend school? Well first i went to kindercarten #79, and after that to elementary school #787, after that to junior high # 21, and highschool #223. After graduation i attended to college #48, but after a year, i dropped out, and went to work in a steel factory #321..’

    @mummeli: New York City does that. Most towns that have only one school in the whole town don’t bother, though!
