Kiev - School Report Question and Answers

Describe the physical education resources at the school. Is there a gym? A swimming pool? Are there playing fields or tennis courts available?

Two large gyms, swimming pool (many elementary grades get swimming lessons at school), weight room, large outdoor field for soccer and track. Nice playground for elementary students. Outdoor basketball courts. I think the tennis players played off-campus nearby (there are tennis facilities as well as all kinds of sporting facilities around). - Sep 2021

There is a gym, a swimming pool, and playing fields. - Jun 2018

B+: My kids like it. My super-sporty son would like to see more organized sports available. - Oct 2013

B/C - Uneven at best, due to the teaching styles and training of the various PE teachers. While some teachers were more positive with the students, one local PE teacher segregated activities by gender (boys play soccer, girls play tag) and called less physically-gifted students "babushkas" when they engaged in running or catching activities. There seemed to be very little instruction going on in my younger child's class. At one point, his class day consisted of watching an old Russian aerobics tape. - Jul 2013
