Two major directions of studying are carried out here, they are economical and informational-technological.

The administration of the High School and teachers’ staff think that a modern young person should have key knowledge and know peculiarities of market economy and own business organization for successful self-fulfillment. In 10 years we managed to find our own view of field-oriented study organization, and in addition to this to find a wise compromise in combining general developing subjects with special knowledge of economics.

At the bottom of conception of economics education in the High School stands the continuity principle, that means spreading of the economics education system to all school levels (primary school – 3,4 grades, secondary – 5-9 grades, senior – 10–11 grades).

Winning in many district, regional academic competitions and participating in academic competition of talented pupils from all Ukraine, winning in Ukrainian economics game "The Banks in action", "MESE" game and results of entering our pupils to the economic faculties of the universities states about the right decision to follow this way.

Fulfillment of informational technological direction of studying and the access to the global web give an opportunity to use modern technologies and methods in studying.

In the High School a great attention is paid to the questions connected with finding, teaching, guidance and appropriate development of gifted children. After all, the problem of giftedness is a challenging thing of philosophical, psychological, pedagogical way.
