Ethics and Effectiveness

The second aspect of education present over the entire course of our school’s curriculum is Ethics and Effectiveness. Its abbreviated name, E2, means: ethical behavior does not stand in the way of efficiency. On the contrary, the two act in synergy, multiplying the social value of professional or economic activity. The subject is implemented wherever planning, cooperation and responsibility are required. Taking up, for example, team action requires recognizing the situation, defining the goal, creating a work schedule, and dividing the roles. During the execution of the task, it is necessary to keep records, act reliably and punctually, solve problems and conflicts, modify the original plan, inform the client about the progress and expected disruptions. The creation of the final product is accompanied by a summary containing conclusions for the future, an honest and comprehensive indication of the elements constituting the original product developed by the team and of the source of inspirations. The participation of individual team members in the task must be clearly and honestly demonstrated. Each teacher understands that it is the effect of the team’s work that is evaluated, and each participant has equal rights to it, regardless of their contribution.

During the first three years of education, the homeroom teacher is responsible for the implementation of this aspect of education within the framework of classes conducted with their class and through their contacts with other teachers. During this period, Students are assessed on how they implement the rules of “E2.” In the fourth grade, Ethics and Effectiveness is taught as a separate subject, preparing future graduates to function in the world at large.
