Scoala Gimnaziala No. 117 is a public school from Bucharest. It is a big school, with over 1600 students with ages between 6 and 15 and with over 90 teachers. Adriana Cires is the key person in charge of organising and overseeing the project. She has extensive experience in program coordination and organisation. However, in case she has to leave her post in the future, we have numerous staff members willing and able to take up the role of Erasmus Plus program coordinator. The principal of the school is the one in charge of this decision.
Our institution also has the title of European School, because we had numerous projects in countries within Europe. Over the years, we have won many national and international competitions. We are interested and able to participate in many international projects, being convinced that we will get remarkable results. We are interested and able to participate in international projects, in order to enrich our school’s professional experience and educational life. We have well-prepared teachers with a lot of experience in the educational system. We are a high-performance school and we provide our students with motivation to perform well. In our school children from every social environment learn, including unfavorable situations, unorganized families, single-parent situations, or poor families. The school’s goal is to attract as
much as possible, to integrate and to involve these children in school life, and also others in attractive and useful activities and projects, so that the school’s drop-out rate reaches zero and children can benefit from a healthy life.
We are a performance school and we offer our students performance motivation. In 2022, the school received the TROPHY award at the National School Magazine Competition for our international magazine “Magia adolescentei”.
