Welcome to Znaika!

Raleigh Russian School Znaika was founded by Boris Chertock in 2002.

We provide an excellent reinforcement in Russian language, history and culture available for the residents of the Triangle area and beyond.

Our mission is an active support for Russian language learners of all ages.

We are a privately owned school registered within the Wake County Public School System and dedicated to building a creative, nurturing and vibrant environment that celebrates rich Russian culture. Our students learn through exploration, interaction and play.

Our goal is to equip each learner with sound foundation in all aspects of Russian language needed to grow socially, emotionally and intellectually.
