The Romanian Schooling System: Teaching Their Children

Feb 21, 2008
Education is a very important aspect in Romanians' life. Since time immemorial, in the smallest villages in the area they used to have a particular respect for the intellectuals of the village who used to be the teacher, the mayor and the priest. Consequently, nowadays it is more important then ever to be well educated. The education system in Romania seems in general quite difficult, both for teachers and for students.

In Romania, children start going to nursery school at the age of three. They can continue with nursery till they are six or seven, depending on the level of their ability. School commences at eight and is over by midday. The children learn to draw and colour, get acquainted with the alphabets and are told many stories through which they are supposed to learn. It is the duty of the teachers to ensure that the students actually imbibe what they are taught.

In addition, they can learn to sing and dance, they are taught practical abilities, therefore they can learn by doing paper boats, snowflakes and other things related to their universe. They can learn as well foreign languages like English, German or even French, according to the nursery school's profile.

At the end of the nursery school stage children are evaluated by the schools that they will attend. Primary education therefore starts at the age of six or seven and it finishes at the age of 10 or 11. In this case, as well, classes start at 8 a.m. and they finish at noon too. Children do not have lunch at school but they can have a sandwich from home and as snack, they get a small carton of milk and a roll.

Furthermore, during primary education in Romania, school subjects are Romanian, Mathematics, Music, Physical Education, Religion, Art, Practical Abilities, Geography, History, Biology, English or other foreign language. Nursery and primary school evaluation is performed via grades like "insufficient", "sufficient", "good" and "very good".

To continue, during lower secondary school, which lasts for four years too, students learn new subjects like Physics, Chemistry, another foreign language, which is French , German or Spanish. During the 7th grade, they have to pass two national tests in Romanian and Mathematics at the end of each term. By the way, the academic year has two terms and children are on holiday for Christmas, between the two terms, for Easter and the summer holiday is from June 15 to September 15.

The end of the 8th grade, the most vital in lower secondary school, is marked by the final examination in Romanian, Mathematics, and History or Geography. The results are declared in a scale of 1 through 10. The results of the students in this test determine whether they can go on to high school or not.

During this time students fill in a form, which has a list of the high schools. Students can mark their choice of high school in the order of their preference on that form. However, whether they actually make it to the schools of their choice would largely be determined by the grades they score.

Those students who have not passed this exam have the possibility to attend vocational schools where they are taught subjects that are more practical, and at the end of these schools they can have a qualification.

After four years in high school, on the other hand, students have to take the baccalaureate examination and then they are able to enter a university for further studies. School education till the age of 16 is compulsory in Romania.
