The educational excellence of the International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is recognised worldwide for its educational excellence, offering a rigorous programme that prepares students to face global challenges with a critical and open mind. 

Our curriculum focuses not only on the acquisition of knowledge, but also on the development of research, communication and analytical skills. The IB places special emphasis on fostering international mindedness, understanding and respecting cultural diversity and world perspectives, and its Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) component instils values of social responsibility, empathy and ethics, encouraging students to become actively involved in their communities. 

The assessment methodology values not only memorised knowledge but also the ability to apply it in real-life contexts. Our International Baccalaureate is considered a benchmark of quality and educational excellence, our aim is to continue to educate individuals who are prepared to be active and engaged citizens in an interconnected world.

Rigorous and personalised academic programmes

Each educational stage follows a language-centred learning process. 


Students are introduced to the new language through songs, stories, games and activities that stimulate listening and repetition. They learn basic vocabulary and become familiar with the sounds of the language.


In primary school, vocabulary is expanded and basic grammar is introduced. Students begin to form simple sentences, engage in basic conversations and move into reading and writing.


Students deepen their grammar, enrich their vocabulary and develop reading comprehension and writing skills. Discussions, presentations and projects in English are encouraged.


At this stage, students reach a high level of fluency. They focus on literature, culture, and advanced language topics, preparing them for official exams and further studies in another language.
