International projects are an important component of Sch. 155 educational strategy.
Since the 80-s years of the XX-th century School # 155 has been active in developing of international projects. The philosophy of the first years after the fall of the Iron Curtain was to give the students opportunity to learn about the world and people beyond the borders of the former Soviet Union; to find common language with the peers in the broader sense of the word, English language being just the means of communication. 'Pen-pals' projects, 'Childrenleaders' projects, the first non-government school-to-school (USA-Ukraine) students exchange projects, etc challenged the old way of thinking in the country.
At the beginning of the XXI st century School # 155 set new objectives for the international projects that had to meet the challenges of the globalized world. Interrelation of the world markets and peoples global interests set the task for Sch. 155 to design projects that could integrate educational philosophies and techniques of many countries to provide students with the opportunity to be mobile, effective and successful in the globalized world.
