The first independent national school in the country - Hobby School was founded in 1994, to educate the next generation of Mongolian intelligentsia, against a backdrop of tough economic conditions, rapidly growing urban population, and crumbling public education system. 

Hobby School is accredited by the Capital City Education Department of Mongolia and follows the State-approved General Secondary Education Curriculum of Mongolia. All students are issued an official Mongolian State Complete Secondary Education Certificate upon graduation. 

In the academic year of 2021-2022, the school has an enrollment of about 1000 students, in grades 1 to 12 (ages 6 to 17, approximately). 

The school's name, despite lending an aura of leisure, is deeply meaningful. The inspiration for the school followed on Eurasian Hobby (Falco Subbuteo). Falcons are revered by Mongolians as symbols of courage and vigor. 

Today, the school is widely recognized as one of the best secondary education institutions in the country. In line with the founder Dr. Oyuntsetseg's vision of nurturing the next generation of Mongolian intelligentsia, Hobby School keeps its tuition fees at levels far below its peer schools in order to ensure accessibility for families from different socio-economic backgrounds. 40% of the total student body receives tuition fee waivers ranging from 10%-100%. 

In addition to following the State-approved General Secondary Education Curriculum of Mongolia, the school implements an immersion-based program of English instruction. Hobby School was the first school in Mongolia to introduce The International Primary Curriculum and The International Middle Years Curriculum. The school was also the first to adopt AP courses into its curriculum. The bilingual nature of the curriculum results in added workload on our students.
