The article aims to investigate the role of high school in students’ education for tolerance that is considered a professionally meaningful for them quality and a key to a successful intercultural communication in today’s multiethnic, multireligious, multilingual, and multicultural world. At the same time, it is stressed that high school is a social institution within which tolerant consciousness and behaviour of students, namely prospective primary school teachers, can be successfully formed through different meaningful and structured extracurriculars. The research also examines the semantic aspect of the concepts “tolerance” and “extracurricular activities”. Accordingly, tolerance is defined as a valuable attitude to people, regardless of gender, race, nationality, language, social status, religion, political views, and cultural identity. Extracurricular activities is determined as students’ activities which fall outside the normal curriculum of an educational institution, are generally voluntary, and are organized and conducted with some participation of mentors. The results of the current study demonstrate that implementing teaching diversity and education for tolerance into the process of extracurricular activities is closely tied to the development of critical and creative thinking skills which help students solve conflicts collaboratively and successfully, fight biases and prejudice. It is also proved that an efficient methodology need to be applied to develop just mentioned skills and educate students for tolerance. This objective can be achieved through variation use of interactive training methods, like role playing, debates, сase studies, synectics, symposia, brainstorming, colloquia, talk shows, virtual tours, and research activities. Certain pedagogical conditions adherence to which the effectiveness of students’ education for tolerance in the process of extracurricular activities depends on are mentioned.
