 The elementary school of Jan Amos Komenský in Komňa is housed in a two-story building located in the lower part of the village. Located next to the school is the Church of St. James and behind the school is a recreational facility, which is used by the students for physical activities. The school was given its current name in 1992 on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the birth of J. A. Komenský (John Amos Comenius), a famous Czech educator, scientist and writer, whose parents came from this town. 

Since 2003, the school has been functioning in a single facility with a kindergarten, an after-school care facility and a school cafeteria. Together, these amenities are integrated into a single legal entity, which operates as the town's allowance organization. The school cafeteria and the after-school care facility are located in the rear section of the building where the kindergarten is also located.

In terms of its number of students, the school in Komňa is one of the smallest schools within the local district. The school uses a system of combined classrooms. It has 3 classrooms, which are attended by students in the first through the fifth grades. The education of the school's students is based on Komenský's principles and the 'LEARN THROUGH PLAY' concept, which is also the name of the school's educational program. Due to the use of the combined classroom system, the teaching process taking place at the school is challenging, while at the same time it is stimulating and enjoyable for the both students and teachers. The teaching methods followed by the school are designed to encourage independent thinking on the part of the children while engendering a passion for and knowledge of the rural environment. Both the local residents and the town council are highly interested in keeping the school in operation.

The school's cafeteria prepares approximately 75 lunches per day and, in addition to the students, it also provides meals for the school's employees, local senior citizens and employees of local businesses. The cafeteria also offers 'meals-on-wheels' type services.
Besides a number of special interest clubs with activities such as flute playing, aerobics, art and the sciences, the school also offers religion as an optional subject.

In past years and also this year, the school's students have been attending swimming lessons at the Delfín Aqua Park in Uherský Brod.
The town's school has always been the cultural center of the village and we are trying to continue the school's contribution to village life today. Throughout the school year, we have been organizing a number of cultural and sports events and competitions in partnership with various local community groups and associations. These have included such events as a local carnival, mothers' day, a kite flying competition, a conversation with hunters, book forums, 'table olympics', a school beauty pageant, the 'Caruso Show', etc.
