The best primary schools in Sofia – 2024

  • news

What are the best (and worst) primary (1-4th grade) schools in Sofia? You can see the full list here, with average results from the BEL and 4th grade mathematics.

And here are the best 20, with only 2 of them being state-owned. Note that matriculation exams are not (government-) controlled for this class, so high scores combined with small numbers of students do not always reflect actual skills.

Here are some additional points to consider when choosing a primary school:

  • Curriculum: Public schools follow the Bulgarian national curriculum, but some private schools might offer additional programs or methodologies.
  • Location: Consider how close the school is to your home and the commute time for your child.
  • School Size and Environment: Would your child thrive in a large or small school environment? Does the school offer extracurricular activities or programs?
  • Language of Instruction: Is Bulgarian the only language offered, or does the school have programs in other languages?
  • School Visits: Many schools offer tours or information sessions for prospective parents.

Remember, the "best" school is subjective and depends on your child's individual needs and learning style.
