There are 50 teachers of different specialization including speech therapist, psychologist and educationalist. We execute the curriculum advisable by the Ministry of Education for the primary school.
The school is situated in the district Borki. It is one of the poorest working districts of Radom. A lot of families struggle with the problem of unemployment, alcoholism and poverty. Consequently it forces one or both parents to go abroad or other cities to earn money.
