October 19th as a Lyceum Student Day in Russia. It so happens that in 2015 this date appears to be of double significance.
The Lyceum Student Day is dedicated to the opening date of the Tsarskoye Selo Lyceum, the alma mater of Alexander Pushkin and dozens of other famous historical figures, in 1811.
International news agency Rossiya Segodnya presented its ranking of the 500 best secondary schools in Russia. Lobachevsky Lyceum made the list.
Director of the Lyceum Yelena Skobeltsyna explained, “The ranking includes results of Unified State Exam, Basic State Exam, contests and olympiads of different magnitude. The fact that our Lyceum is among the best is definitely the achievement of both our teachers and students. We are very proud of this success and hope to reach new heights”.
The Lyceum also made the Top 200 in the Talent Development subranking and the Top 100 in the Physics and Math subranking.
This was to be expected since the Lyceum pays special attention to physics and math in its curricula.
