Founder’s vision

Our founder of Exupery International School is Elena Buyanova, her professionalism and personal contribution to the development of the Russian Information Technology industry has been recognised through numerous Awards, Certificates and Diplomas.

"Like the great humanist and writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, I believe that "only the children know what they are looking for.” The task of all adults is only to help them to find it. "The Little Prince" is one of the most beloved and significant books in my life. It reminds adults of what was important to them when they were little children, and also manages to teach us that important things happen here and now, not at some later time. Therefore, the name for this school - Exupery - came naturally.

Exupery International School is a place where teachers are mentors that help children not only master the academic program, but, most importantly, find their mission. After all, the happiest people on Earth are those whose childhood hobbies have become part of their professional life. If a person is engaged in what he or she really likes, then they have both the motivation and desire to move forward and achieve true results."
