Our school is situated in Prapořiště
village (part of city Kdyně) by the Czech border in Všeruby mountain pass.
This mountain pass is a natural separation of Šumava and the Czech Forrest. An
important road leading to Bavaria ran through the pass back in the 9th
The school was built in 1903 as a German school.
After the year 1945 is became a Czech school and the building housed also a
pre-school. Nowadays, the capacity of our pre-school is fully used and
majority of children move from pre-school to our elementary school (which
serves grades 1 to 5). School in Prapořiště is also attended by children from
Kdyně, Starec, Hájek, Brůdek, Všeruby.
Our school enables individual attention to kids in
an atmosphere that is not shadowed by problems such as bullying, drugs, etc.
Children are not only educated but also raised towards good moral values and
The knowledge and morality that our students learn
are more important to us than phrases in the minutes from pedagogic meetings.
No educational system can bring revolution to education. We do not see
education and upbringing of our children as coming up with new and
“alternative” means and procedures. We are patiently trying to continue the
work of many good teachers who were able to share their knowledge long before
our times. We value the personality of each of our students. We believe
that being human is the most important occupation and mission.
