On receiving your form, a unique code will be generated for your child. You will then enter this code in an online table where you can choose a suitable time of your enrolment appointment. In this way you and your child will not have to wait for hours and get stressed in crowded rooms.

You will need the birth certificate of your child and your ID card or passport.

The enrolment procedure and the final decision is subject to Czech law (specifically Act 561/2004 Sb., § 36, § 46 odst. 1, § 165 odst. 2 písm. e).A list of admitted applicants (under the registration code) is then published.

About us

Lauder school includes a kindergarten, an elementary school and a high school. All the three parts of the school are located in the school’s building in Belgická street in Prague 2. Lauder school is an education project of the Jewish community in Prague. It is open to pupils and students of all Jewish backgrounds and/or true interest in education in Jewish tradition.

The elementary school was established in 1997. The high school opened its gates to the first students in 1999. In 2002 the school reached the full number of classes: 9 classes in the elementary school and 4 classes in its high school. Another important moment in the history of the school came in 2009 when the school changed its educational program and the school started to offer a higher standard of education in an 8-year-long high school. In the same year, we opened our own kindergarten Gan Yehuda.

The school is opened also to non-Jewish children, however the respect for Jewish tradition and Jewish ethical principles is a demand we request from all of our students.

Our teachers created a specific school’s curriculum “Le Chajim” that follows the demands of the Czech state’s standards for kindergarten, elementary and high school education. In addition, our school offers a program of Jewish education and Hebrew language. (More about Judaism)

Our students can use the opportunity for further personal development during project days with various topics, debates with prominent figures of both the Jewish and non-Jewish world; in afternoon classes of English, pottery, sport, afternoon film club, club of volunteers “Mitzvah team” etc.

The school building has recently been renovated. The venue includes computer lab, library, sports field, gym and a music studio.

Our school canteen provides dairy and meaty kosher meals (morning snacks and lunches.) Children of elementary school are welcome to stay in the school’s after-school center (“družina”) both before and after their classes.
