Wroclaw International School celebrates 10 years as an International Baccalaureate World School
Wroclaw International School (WIS) in Wrocław, Poland is celebrating its 10th anniversary as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. This milestone enables WIS to join a legacy of other IB World Schools around the globe.
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is studied by children aged 3 to 12 and offers an inquiry-based, transdisciplinary curriculum framework that builds conceptual understanding.
The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is for students aged 11 to 16 and is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the world around them.
Our WIS students can then continue their IB education in The Diploma Programme (DP) at The International High School of Wroclaw, WIS sister-school, for students aged 16 to 19, which comprises of six subjects including three DP core subjects.
Since the school first became an IB World School in 2010, the school has been supported by the IB organization, with regards to implementing the programmes offered to students.
Mr. Richard Begent, Head of School said:
When we ask the question; ‘What type of person do I want my child to become?’ We don’t tend to respond that they will be an A+ person, instead we tend to respond in a way that reflects the characteristics of the individual; inquiring, balanced, knowledgeable, caring etc, characteristics that the IB call learner profiles, and this is what an IB World School education provides. An IB education provides a wonderful opportunity for our students to develop holistically into adults that truly care for the world around them and understand the role they play in the creation of a better society.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary, Wroclaw International School will organize some school events, including workshops and a school picnic.
Adrian Kearney, Director IB World Schools, said:
The IB is proud to have Wroclaw International School as part of our global family of schools. It has been an inspiring provider of the IB programmes for the past 10 years, giving students the confidence and ability to reach further and be the best they can be in an ever-changing and unpredictable world. As an organization, the IB thanks the school for its commitment to fulfilling and delivering the IB’s mission of education for a better world and look forward to many more years working with the educators at Wroclaw International School.
The IB’s vision is to foster, open and enlighten minds through educational programmes for students between the ages of 3-19 years old. Each programme is tailored to equip students with the skills they require throughout life and encourages lifelong learning beyond their school years.
