The main goal of our educational programme is the holistic development of the student, whom we perceive holistically.
Learning at our school is aimed at developing the following cognitive attitudes:
- curiosity about the world and a desire to broaden knowledge in order to become a lifelong learner
- a willingness to develop one’s own interests
- critical and independent thinking with an appreciation for different perspectives
Our educational programmes encourage development of qualities and attitudes that will allow the students to function in the modern world fully and efficiently. These qualities and attitudes are embodied in the IB Learner profile. In accordance with the mission of the school, each teacher supports the comprehensive development of our students so that they can achieve success through their individual abilities. We appreciate the individuality of each student. We encourage students to cooperate with their peers and respect the rights and dignity of others. The goals of our educational programmes are always at the forefront of school life – during regular classes, form periods, extracurricular activities, trips and school projects.
The profile of a FIE school learner is a description of attributes that we are trying to nurture in our students. Learner profile is common to all IB programmes and is the heart of our educational programme. Learner profile is one of the elements that helps parents decide whether they want their children to learn at our schools. It is a short interpretation of our educational philosophy and it describes personality traits of our graduates is a simple way.
