Why choose an IB Education

Our ongoing objective is to implement the curriculum of all IB programmes in our schools because of the shared philosopy of fostering  internationally minded students who recognising common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, will contribute to build a better and more peaceful world.
We work in the dynamic development of a multilingual and multicultural holistic approach to this aim by creating an environment which is relaxed but challenging, familiar but disciplined and most of all, we have created a school for the citizens of the future where fun and curiosity may lead to
and creativity in problem solving.

This aim is reflected in our mission statement
