EARLY YEARS

We offer the environment and the opportunities necessary for young children to engage with the world in a direct, interactive manner.

With the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) which encourages an active teaching approach, the children construct meanings from their experience with the social and physical world around them. The flexibility of the PYP allows the teachers to support the interest of the children, to boost their self-esteem and confidence, and to promote the development of skills in all cognitive areas.

The aim is for the pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to thrive as participatory and enterprising citizens, with leadership and innovation skills, focusing on the demands of a constantly changing world.

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE DIPLOMA PROGRAMME

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a two-year program recommended for pupils approximately between the age of 16 and 19. In our school, the baccalaureate is taught starting from 11th grade (5th year of secondary school) and ends in 12th grade (6th year of secondary school.

Recent studies on university graduates show that those who previously took the IB Diploma obtained higher average marks. The Diploma students are moreover shown to be better prepared, this being reflected in the higher rate of university graduation.
