Educational Philosophy & Programs

Educational Philosophy & Programs

Educational Philosophy

Teaching and learning at the European International School (EIS) is based on the philosophy and programs of the International Baccalaureate and the Guiding Statements of EIS (Vision Narrative, Values and Learning Principles)

Academic Programs

EIS is an English medium, co-educational school that celebrates diverse and globally-minded families from many countries. Students are prepared for life after school be it for tertiary studies at quality universities across Europe and the rest of the world or other forms of post-school learning. We are a contemporary and progressive school, delivering the International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum which we believe is dynamic, inquiry based and in line with best-practice drawn from current educational research and teaching methodologies.

The academic programme is concepts and skills driven. These concepts and skills take priority over simply learning knowledge and content, as it is understood that being able to analyse, interrogate and question knowledge is very important. The real strength of an IB education are the tools that it provides students to be successful and confident learners, who enjoy a challenge and understand that the learning journey and their approaches to learning are just as important as the result.
