The municipal primary school (MPS) "Cyril and Methodius" was founded in 1985. It is located in the central part of the populated area of Stajkovci, in the municipality of Gazi Baba, 8 km away from Skopje, the capital of Macedonia. In the central school in Stajkovci, teaching is conducted in Macedonian, while in the satellite school in the village of Strachinci, classes are taught in Albanian.
The school constantly invests in teachers' professional development and puts a strong effort in achieving a high level of mutual cooperation among teachers in and out of school, improving thereby the team work, as well as working on excelling general ethical standards. The quality of the teaching process is measured by a system (or indicators) for estimating the quality of education in Macedonia. The quality of the teaching process is elevated in continuity by improving the working conditions, providing the necessary work resources, implementing innovative and modern teaching methods, forms and techniques according to students’ levels of development and their learning styles, creating a stimulating learning environment, and building an environment of respect and acknowledgement of student diversity.
The international cooperation is in the focus of the school management, aiming at highlighting the European context of the educational process in the school and creating strong bonds and networking with the schools across Europe. The objective of this strategic priority of the school is to improve the quality standards of the educational process by applying new pedagogical and innovative approaches in the process of teaching, learning and instruction.
