Sport facilities

Our school offers a variety of sports through the Physical Education Programme and the extra-curricular activities. With the beginning of the academic year 2017/2018 we will introduce a new Athletic Program. We believe that this will become another strong pillar of our educational offer that will help shape the identity of the schools for future decades.

Sport at the school allows the students to develop both physically and intellectually, with an emphasis on developing their social skills and a personal engagement. Our students develop a lifelong appreciation of physical activities and health and wellness, on both a personal and social level.

Sport has always been one of the most important elements of our educational offer.

  • Since establishing the first school of Foundation of International Education (in 1990) we were offering a wide range of sport activities for our students. These have included annual Sport days, Green and White Schools trips and a wide offer of sports as extracurricular activities, which have helped to shape the schools tradition and character.
  • In 2007-2008  the first basketball teams were established. Since this time we have participated in and organized international school tournaments on a regular basis both in Poland and abroad.
  • In 2011 we organized the EUROpean Cultural Cup (as preparation for UEFA EURO 2012), in which 11 international soccer teams from 11 different countries took part.
  • In 2013 we organized Wolves Cancer Shootout Tournament a charity event for a children hospice, with participation of Polish basketball star – Maciej Zielinski.
  • In 2017 we celebrated the 10th anniversary of  the Wolves Basketball Teams.

Other foreign languages

In the first grade of high school we offer two foreign language courses: German and Spanish. From time to time, we organise German-learning-related projects with partner schools, we offer language learning trips to Germany, and occasionally Spanish learning is supported by students from Spain staying with us from time to time as part of the Erasmus programme.

In IB Diploma Programme we teach the mother tongues of our students and additionally one foreign language.

Bilingualism

Bilingual teaching at the schools of the Foundation of International Education prepares young people to learning in the international programmes and to use English with ease and at a high level. The successes of FIE school graduates, who are doing very well at schools and foreign universities (e.g. the University of Oxford), most distinctly prove the language competencies acquired at our schools.

In the first grade of the International High School of Wroclaw students are taught in two languages. Bilingualism is implemented in two ways:

  • Some classes are taught in Polish and in English, depending on the performed tasks or presented content. For example, history classes will be taught in Polish when they are devoted to the history of Poland, and in English when they are devoted to general history. History classes will be taught by two teachers: a Pole and a Briton.
  • Some classes are taught in English only, for example, music lessons or the practical philosophy class, which are held together with the students of our sister school – Wroclaw International School.

Participation in the life of the international community centred around the Foundation of International Education is an additional opportunity to come into contact with the English language. It makes young people realise that a great knowledge of the language makes them citizens of the world.

In the second and third form of International High School of Wroclaw, English is the only language of instruction (this rule does not apply to studying Group 1 courses, which include subjects from the field of language and literature – classes are taught in the respective languages; Studying Group 2 courses proceeds in a similar manner).

Assessment

The assessment in each subject group is based on the determination of the level of student performance against the established criteria, and not on the ranking of students in a given group. External assessment includes a number of tasks emphasising higher-order cognitive thinking skills, and which may take the form of essays and test sets. Internal assessment carried out by the teachers and moderated by the IB, is part of the final assessment of the student.

DP Subject Groups

Each IB Learner creates his or her curriculum profile to a large extent by themselves. The student’s task is to choose one subject from each of 5 groups, which ensures the breadth of knowledge and deep understanding of:

  • the student’s best language,
  • additional language(s),
  • the social sciences,
  • the experimental sciences
  • mathematics.

Each student can choose to study an artistic group 6 subject or study an additional subject from the above mentioned groups.

At least three (but not more than four) subjects have to be taken at higher level (240 teaching hours), while the other subjects are taken at standard level (150 teaching hours).

English

Foreign language teaching at the International High School of Wroclaw is one of the most important item on our curriculum in accordance with the school’s Code of language and philosophy of IB. In the first form of our high school students have an increased number of hours of English and for one semester English classes are taught by a native speaker. Some classes in the first form are taught in English or bilingually, depending on the type of tasks and teaching content. English learning is organised in a way that prepares the students for learning in that language in the IB Diploma Programme.

In addition, learning English is supported by international projects , such as:

  • international educational and language learning projects
  • International Spring Concert
  • participation in the Model United Nations
  • international basketball team – the Wolves and international tournaments organised by it.

In the second and third forms, that is in the Diploma Programme, English becomes the language of instruction and, apart from the mother tongues, the language in which the students will pass the International Baccalaureate exams. English learning is supported by international school library with more than 10,000 volumes of literature from all over the world.

What is an IB World School?

Our high school is certified as an IB World School. The school belongs to the ranks of over two thousand Diploma Programme schools in the world.

IB certified schools offer not only the highest level of educational programmes, but also highly trained staff and facilities considered optimal for the development of young people. These schools share a common philosophy of education, according to which the focus is always on the student as a creative individual. The programmes develop students’ ability to combine knowledge from different subjects in the context of real-world issues. IB World School graduates are people who not only have a wide range of knowledge, but they are also reflective, capable of critical thinking and prepared to continue their education in schools and universities around the world.

IB World School teachers are committed to continued self-development, to increasing their qualifications, to the use of online bookstores and libraries and to participating in international conferences and workshops organised by the IBO. Training courses are an opportunity to increase and consolidate the factual knowledge and they allow teachers to exchange experience with teachers from all over the world who are also implementing IB programmes.

Other schools run by the Foundation of International Education (ATUT Bilingual Primary School, ATUT Bilingual Secondary School and Wroclaw International School) have been IB World Schools for several years already.
