International Trilingual School of Warsaw teaches pupils from 1 to 15 years of age in English, French, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese and Polish. It follows the curriculum based on the comparison of British, American, Japanese, French, Spanish, Chinese and Polish national curricula.
Our priority is to enable students to pass seamlessly between educational systems while maintaining the native level of native and foreign languages.
International Trilingual School of Warsaw is a nursery, kindergarten and primary school with a strong emphasis on languages—children from one to fifteen years of age are educated in three languages: English, Polish, and French (but also Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese). At the core of the program is the concept that early multilingualism develops by age three, when children acquire languages naturally. The three languages taught are treated equally—as mother tongues. The school’s program was developed based on an analysis and comparison of six curricula: American, British, French, Finnish, Polish and the international IB Programme. The International Trilingual School of Warsaw with its 10 years of experience, offers a top-notch education, native language teachers, and a multicultural community.
Our Kids speaks to Anna Maliszewska, founder and director of the International Trilingual School of Warsaw
Bilingualism and multilingualism, as many studies unequivocally show, have an extremely positive effect on the brain's development, cognitive abilities, and intellectual functioning, including the aging process. In the nurseries, kindergartens, and primary schools of the International Trilingual School of Warsaw, which has also recently opened a campus in Kraków, trilingual children are trained in various configurations of English, Polish, French, Spanish, and Chinese.

Central to your child's school experience is the underlying curriculum taught in the classroom. "Curriculum" refers to both what is taught and how it's taught. When considering the different curricula outlined in the next few pages, keep in mind that few schools fall neatly into one category or another. Most schools' curricula comprise a blend of best practices drawn from multiple curriculum types. Having said that, most schools do have a general overall curriculum type. These are identified for each school on OurKids.net.Primary Curriculum: Progressive
Progressive (sometimes called "inquiry based" or "discovery based") curricula use students' interests and their natural curiosity as the driver for instruction. Teachers provide materials, experiences, tools and resources necessary for students to investigate a topic or issue. Students are then encouraged to explore, reflect on their findings, and discuss answers, solutions, and insights.Secondary Curriculum: Academic
Academic-based preschools and Kindergartens are the most structured of the different types, and have a strong emphasis on math and reading readiness skills. These programs aim to expose children to what early-elementary school is like. While time is still allotted to free play, much of the day is built around explicit lessons guided by the teacher. Classrooms often resemble play-based ones (with different stations set up around the room), but at an Academic program the teacher leads students through the stations directly, and ties these activities to a whole-class lesson or theme.
A school with a "rigorous" academic culture places a high value on academic performance, and expects their students to do the same. This does not mean the school is uncaring, unsupportive, or non-responsive -- far from it. A school can have a rigorous academic culture and still provide excellent individual support. It does mean, however, the school places a particular emphasis on performance -- seeking the best students and challenging them to the fullest extent -- relative to a normal baseline. High expectations and standards - and a challenging yet rewarding curriculum - are the common themes here. Keep in mind this classification is more relevant for the older grades: few Kindergarten classrooms, for example, would be called "rigorous".
|Learning strategy and study counselling; habit formation|
|Extra support and minor accommodations for children experiencing subclinical difficulties|
Formal adjustments are made to the delivery of lessons to help mitigate the learning difficulty or exceptionality. The underlying content and expectations remain unchanged with accommodations, however. (Example: allowing a student to write tests in a quieter room).
The underlying content and expectations are modified and/or simplified for the sake of the student. (Examples: allowing student to use a calculator on a test when other students can’t; allowing students to bring word-banks or “cheat sheets” into certain tests, etc)
