Our mission and vision statements

Our school, being a member of the International Baccalaureate Organization, shares the IB’s approach towards preparing and educating curious, smart, environment-friendly students, who aim to create a safe world, understand and cherish their own culture and history while also respecting other cultures and histories, and who are able to formulate their own, independent position in life, while recognising themselves as belonging to a greater social whole and using effectively the knowledge they have gained in order to achieve success in a dynamic modern world.
In our day-to-day school practice, consistently with the above aims and applying (and developing) international educational standards, we assess our students based on sets of objective criteria, promoting the stimulating features or criterial assessment through a process of interaction between students, parents and the School. The School’s educational programme encourages such personal qualities in its students as openness, curiosity, empathy, an active mindset and a thirst for constant self-development.

Inclusion: we aim to create an environment where every student realises their potential and develops their individual talents.

Russian educational system traditions with the best European educational system practices. It involves learning several foreign languages, learning cultural, linguistic courses, learning different subjects in English. International learning materials and software is used in the educational process. School teachers constantly develop, finishing different courses in the schools abroad, attending IB conferences and seminars.

Our school assists in completing educational programs and enrolling in the universities, creating individual educational plans, working with universities’ employees, organising special extracurricular activities.
