This project is a response to identified needs of our institution – junior high school ”Keglik”. A survey which was conducted among the teachers, parents of our students and parents of our prospective students revealed that there is a large interest in the change of teaching quality and the prospect of being open to the world. We have asked our respondents to indicate specific goals for a good modern school. After analysis of the questionnaires and taking into account our teachers’ opinions, we made a diagnosis of our possibilities and stated that changes are needed.Our response is the project entitled ”School of success – a creative and innovative teacher”, where we described methods for modernising and a positive change in the quality of our work.The project is related to:- implementation of our school’s European Development Plan,- extensive cooperation with institutions from whole Europe,- improving results of teaching and education.In order to achieve this aim dependably prepared teachers are needed.
