Today about 75 teachers work here. Teachers are friendly and understanding. The pupils' needs are always taken into consideration.
For years there has been a school newspaper called Reaali Poiss (The Reaal Boy) that reflects the school life through pupils' eyes. It is published on paper but can also be read on the Internet http://www.real.edu.ee/ajaveeb/rp/.
In order to give pupils a chance to join in the discussions of the most important questions, pupils have founded the society REK. The REK is led by a President elected for one school year. The aim of the organization is to help to preserve the ideas and traditions of the school and to organize activities and events.
The main focus of the school is on academic studies. To guarantee that pupils have good learning conditions the Board of Guardians and the Care Society work hand in hand.
The name of our school suggests that it is a science-oriented school. Besides the general subjects that are mandatory, each secondary level pupil can choose between Mathematics and Sciences, Economics or Technology to study in depth.
Participation in different national and international programs and competitions is becoming more popular every year.
National Olympiads in Mathematics, ICT and Sciences are held every year. Lots of pupils have participated in the National Olympiads and have achieved great results.
For example in 2015 our students won two gold medals, four silver medals, eight bronze medals and three diplomas at international Olympiads. One of the contestants, Carel Kuusk, won a gold medal in EU Natural Sciences, silver medal in Chemistry and a bronze medal in Biology.
Pupils also attend courses at the Youth Academy at the University of Tartu.
Sports has always been popular among our pupils. Our school does not have as great sports facilities as some other schools do. Despite this our pupils have always received good results in various competitions, especially in ball games. Football, volleyball and basketball teams have always been among the top ten teams within secondary schools in Tallinn.
One of the most famous sportsmen who has graduated our school is Georg Lurich, the best known Estonian wrestler with a world-wide reputation whose fame has stood the test of time. Starting from 2012 the Strength of Reaal - a competition is held where secondary school students can compete to win the title of the strongest man in school.
To boost sports a non-profit organisation The Sports Club was founded in September 2003.
There are a mixed choir, children's choir, elementary school choir, boys choir and different ensembles at the school. Their performances accompany festive gatherings and every spring a concert for students, teachers, parents and almni is organised. The choirs take part in several national and international competitions. In 2015, for example, the girls choir of the choir studio won the first place and a gold diploma in Kalamata song festival among folk and young people's choirs. In 2016 the mixed choir became first in JazzPopFest.
Our school is the best place to study and get the best education in Tallinn.
