Leonardo Gifted School serves the needs of highly intelligent children. We start as a pre-primary and primary gifted school (3 to 12 years) with British Schools Overseas (BSO) accreditation process. The BSO accreditation and inspection takes place first year or second year of functioning, based on our team’s choice. After the BSO accreditation we follow the normal process for enlisting in the special registry of International schools in Romania and become in this way, an accredited Romanian school. We will also develop a secondary school (to KS3, 13-14 and KS4, 14-16) and later a college. Our strategy includes building a campus, and here you can make a difference.

What is next? What can your child do after the school ends?

Leonardo Gifted School is a school exclusively dedicated to highly gifted children. This is a tremendous chance for a child to learn in an environment which respects from the start the special needs of the child and supports the child in developing an autonomous being, an independent thinker and a healthy emotional behaviour. This is the right kind of school for a gifted child.

  • Children learning in our environment have the resilience and adaptability to go and pursue state schools or private schools later
  • Children can come to our organization for more, like volunteering, internships and specialized programs for gifted like bootcamps when they grow
  • Only in the first 2 years, children graduating Leonardo who wish to return to the system are enrolled in the age-appropriate class and they give differences from the previous year, so that they get that matriculation sheet (that no one needs). Please read art 125 of ROFUIP which states the exact procedure. We can provide real information from parents who have undergone this procedure based on request. There is a lot more going on in the field. After that, with ensuing accreditation, there is no need for this step.
  • Cambridge IGCSE (the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds), GCE AL (minimum of 2 exams), give children access to school equivalence. GCSE does not get equivalence in RO, only AL – 2 exams, are equivalent to our “BAC”. GCE Advanced Level (GCE AL) (United Kingdom): The General Certificate of Education (GCE) Advanced Level, or A Level, is a main school leaving qualification in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. It is available as an alternative qualification in other countries. Students generally study for A levels over a two-year period.
  • If you wish to learn about the admission criteria used by Universities nowadays, or how gifted kids manage around the system to cater for their special needs, you can come to one of our workshops to discuss at large so please send an email to our team. There are multiple ways to get admission to a University: the classical way, or by making a portofolio, which is what more and more secondary schools /universities are asking nowadays, other school-equivalence tests or see this article to learn what it took Alexia in 2023 to get admission to a Faculty with UBB in Romania (*it took 1 day Alexia to get recognition for her credit studies with Citizens High School in US and skip BAC)
