The area is considered underdeveloped and is characterized by the large number of unemployed young people.
We have already had two Comenius 1, one Comenius 3 and number of other European projects , so we would like to continue our development of our understanding of the European dimension of education and learning. Our students participated in numerous international projects such as exchanges of students, ECO-schools, ENO-project, business correspondence and some written projects with Collegiul Economic Buzau. Since 2002 the school has been participating in Comenius partnership projects and Comenius Network NEAC as a silent partner. We really think that the friendship that was born in the recent years is fantastic and at the end of projects the contacts are still going on. We would hope to build on our experience of European schools through the exchange of information, work practice and experience both of staff and students. This exchange of ideas and experiences fosters a deeper understanding of our place in Europe and develops a culture of friendship among students from the different schools, cultures and backgrounds.
