The Republican Physics and Mathematics School was opened in Astana. It is a branch of a prestigious institution. More than 40 years ago the first educational institution appeared in Kazakhstan. It was created by the best specialized schools in Moscow and New York. Well-known politicians and scientists have graduated from the physics and mathematics institution. The Kazakh Prime Minister personally came to the institution to rate it with a delegation. In the early 1980s, Karim Massimov graduated from the physics and mathematics institute. The modern conditions are different from those when the Prime Minister studied. Thus, children from the second grade are studying programming. There are about 70 best teachers from Astana and Almaty.

 

Zhanyl ZHONTAYEVA, DIRECTOR OF DEPARTMENT OF PRE-SCHOOL AND SECONDARY EDUCATION, KAZAKH MINISTRY OF EDUCATION AND SCIENCE:

The physics and mathematics school proved that it was the best not only in the country but also in the CIS and in the world. They won gold medals in physics, chemistry and mathematics at the School Olympiads and other scientific projects.

 

According to the principle, there are many students who want to study there. More than 2,000 applications were received in two months.

 

Gabit BEKAKHMETOV, DIRECTOR OF REPUBLICAN PHYSICS AND MATHEMATICS SCHOOL IN ASTANA:

It is important to emphasize that we are specialized mainly on programming. Programming is the science of the future. It is the driver of many economies both in the West and the East. And we must be up to date. There are many children who can start programming at the age of 9, if not then it will be very difficult to pass on the International Olympiad in Informatics. Accordingly, we start it from the second grade.

 

Some 900 students will study here, 200 of them using the grants, others will have to pay for their studies. The education in the physical-mathematical school will cost parents about a million tenge per year. According to the principle, there are discounts for families with several children that go to this school. And, the funds will be reinvested in the school.
