Our IB programme is divided into the Primary Years Programme (Grades 1–5), the Middle Years Programme (Grades 6–10), and the Diploma Programme (Grades 11–12). The IB aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

English Language Support

English is the language of instruction though it is not the first language of most students who come to us with an array of different languages at differing levels of fluency. Because a command of English is the primary key to accessing information and communicating, we support all students’ English language development in order to ensure that each can succeed academically.

In the mainstream environment of EIS, all teachers are responsible for English language development of all students.

The CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Language) is a benchmark used at EIS to assess skills and the progress of language learners. Students who are new to English are plotted on this ‘road map’ that shows the learner’s journey toward proficiency in English language. The framework identifies expectations for language use at specific levels, combined with the learner’s level of language acquisition in five communicative skills: listening, spoken interaction, spoken production, reading, and writing.
