fostering global citizenship
Our education philosophy and core values, although much more than a collections of carefully chosen words can be best summarized as :
Our community is international, and our vision is global. We celebrate diversity and value our local heritage. Our environment is one of equality and intercultural respect. We spark curiosity, encourage creative thinking and reward effort. Self-respect, compassion and kindness are just as important as academics. We pursue excellence through challenging programs, rigorous assessment and high standards of behavior. We continually inspire and challenge young minds to be responsible life-long learners who care for our planet and make a positive difference in a changing world. We create Global Citizens….
From humble beginnings . . . .
We have been serving our community of local and international students in Poznan since September 1, 2005. By 2008, we were one of the first schools in schools in Poznan authorized by the International Baccelerate (IB) to teach the Diploma Programme. Then in 2010, our Primary School received authorization from the IB to teach the Primary Years Programme (PYP). We now have over 600 students enrolled in the many programmes that we offer taught by close to a 100 skilled teachers and we remain committed to continually invest in our facilities and faculty.
