If you think Polish and English schools are similar then you are wrong. They are still schools but have many differences. Polish schools don’t buy staff for you.

If you have already done it two times, then you get a minus or 1. If you get five minuses then you get 1 and if you get five pluses then you get 5. It depends on the rules in different schools. Also, in Poland there is something called student committee that organises trips and parties and different charity actions in school. Students that take part in it also help others and solve problems and get good grades for the behaviour. If your average of grades is above 4.75 then you get a special certificate with red strap on it. Not many students get it though. Physical education in Poland looks completely different. Girls and boys are together in one group and often they play football, volleyball, basketball, workouts, gymnastics, hockey and they don’t go out from school as they have their lesson in the gym or sports field or the corridor or engine room in the school.

Then you go to secondary school which lasts for 3 years and then you can choose if you want to go to high school
