Hobby School of Ulaanbaatar is the first private school in the country, founded in 1994 with a Vision to educate the next generation of Mongolian intelligentsia.
Hobby School follows the State-approved General Secondary Education Curriculum of Mongolia and is the first in the country to introduce bilingual education. While we are proudly and emphatically a national school, we also pride ourselves on having one of the top English language programs in the nation. Our graduates are the first Mongolian freshmen of the prestigious universities like Harvard, Stanford and other.
English is taught from Gr.1 and, therefore, most students have full command of conversational English by the time they reach middle school. We currently follow the Oxford International Curriculum along with ELA classes that are taught in conjunction with the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC fieldworkeducation.com).
We are planning to introduce the Cambridge Curriculum.
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, a rapidly growing urban population, and a 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 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 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.
Teaching in Mongolia is an opportunity for licensed educators to teach overseas in a country that boasts a rugged landscape and a fascinating culture rooted in ancient traditions.
