Founder, Hanna Piskorska
When in 1992, I founded the school along with some friends, it was an act of defiance. I had already had thirteen years of teaching experience in a state school. Gradually, over those thirteen years, I formed an image of an ideal school; a wise and pleasant school, where time is not wasted, where discipline favours efficiency of work and is not an objective in itself.
The school of my dreams would be a meeting place for youth with vibrant personalities, who are taught by sensitive and well educated teachers who enjoy their work and teach in a way that interests, inspires, develops and respects the individuality of young people.
I have not forgotten about that defiance and those dreams. The IB programmes help me in remembering these, as it turned out that the programmes are coherent with my own doctrine of teaching.
We are the first school team in Poland offering International Baccalaureate Organization programs at all levels of education, from kindergarten to high school.
At the same time, we are one of the oldest private schools in Poland. We are 25 years old. Diploma Program - Since 2003, Middle Years Program (for young people) - Since 2011, Primary Years Program (for children) - since 2010. Already 12 years we prepare for the IB diploma, and our graduates are studying at the best Polish and foreign universities.
We identify with the philosophy of IBO, which assumes holistic human development. Its symbol is Student Profile IB - a set of ten personality traits, whose strengthening is the goal of IB programs ( Learner Profile ). PYP, MYP and DP on the one hand standardize the requirements and effects of education, guaranteeing a very high level of content. On the other hand, they give immense freedom to students and teachers, inspire self-reliance, creativity, experimentation, cognitive courage and critical thinking.
The strength of IB programs is the combination of standardization and freedom. It captivates us. The student in our schools is confident that he will achieve a high level of educational competency, but also becomes an authentic, not just a declared, subject of the educational process.
We invite you to visit our school to learn about our Kindergarten, Primary Years Program, Middle Years Program and Diploma program, and get to know the teachers and work methods. Please call or email us today.
