The International school of Kazan is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme, and Diploma Programme. We are pursuing authorization as an IB World School.
IB World Schools share a common philosophy: a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
The IB’s Mission Statement
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org.
*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
Students who are new to English are provided with extra support to aid their English language acquisition. This ensures that they are able to work towards grade-level expectations in all subject areas. Our ESL teachers support these students both inside the regular classroom and in separate small-group instruction.
ESL teachers collaborate with homeroom teachers to ensure that support is tailored to match each student’s need. This support allows students to gain more confidence in themselves and their abilities.
