Our school’s philosophy emphasizes interdisciplinary approach towards education to create socially responsible and critically thinking citizens who are aware of the world’s diversity and complexity. Our mission is to develop our students’ natural curiosity in order to make them lifelong learners. Our well-balanced curriculum permits students to learn how to respect different cultures as well as support their own opinions and ideas. We focus not only on students’ academic preparation, but also on their social, physical, emotional, and cultural development.
We understand international education as a multi-level ongoing process that allows students to understand and to respond to new challenges they encounter in the contemporary world. Our educational offer is created in accordance with international standards and teaching methods. All programmes implemented in our school are designed to increase children’s sensitivity to other people’s cultures, attitudes, and needs. We believe this approach will help young people to find their place in the international community and to develop their interest in being active members of a global society.

Jean Monnet (1888-1979) – a well-educated French politician and economist, a citizen of the world. In 1955, Monnet founded the Action Committee for the United States of Europe which supported economic cooperation in Europe.

One of the European Commission projects has been named after Jean Monnet. Its aim is to increase knowledge of European integration among scientists and students. The Jean Monnet project contributes to creating new departments, courses, studies, and European research; part of its funds goes to scholarships.
