Why PORG Primary School

The only accredited international school in Ostrava.

PORG International School is the first school certified by the Korean Ministry of Education in the Czech Republic!

Parents do not need to spend time getting notarization or an apostille from the embassy when their children return to Korea.

We believe that creating positive school memories is just as important as building solid foundations for future lives. The educational experience should be stimulating and challenging but above all, in these vital years, it must be happy and secure.

We encourage the children to learn and grow in a motivating, international environment to become complex and strong personalities. The learning process at our school becomes a neverending story, not only while in school, but also when meeting new friends and gaining new experiences.
