My daughter Kristen is having an amazing time at UWC-Adriatic and is making new friends from different countries.. The school offers the International baccalaureate and accepts students from all over the world. As such, it operates as a mini united nations where students are encouraged and inspired to reach their full academic potential, while at the same time maintaining a balanced life with exciting sporting endeavours and an outreach program of community service. Because it is an IB program, the academics at UWC-Adriatic are rigorous and students who go there score very well. My daughter is excelling in her studies and maintains that because school life is balanced between studies, sports and service she doesn't feel the pressure of studying 24-7. Studying with kids from all over the globe gives her insight into others' perspective and a broad worldview.
