Director's Welcome

Welcome to the International Baccalaureate® (IB) division of the European School.

Welcome to the European School, one of the truly outstanding international schools of Georgia which aims to provide an exceptional education in a nurturing and academically challenging environment. Since the school’s opening in 2007, we have established ourselves as an international school where students learn to celebrate diversity in a multicultural environment, develop the spirit of understanding and tolerance, acquire a wealth of experience in the wider world and become global citizens.
No matter which program students are enrolled in-Georgian Program, International Baccalaureate (IB) Programmes or American High School–they share a common bond in striving for excellence. We are committed to provide students with the opportunities and support they need to excel academically and develop fundamental life skills and attitudes that will propel them through life. We aim not only to have students going to the top universities in the world, but also to develop a lifelong passion for learning and a genuine interest in the world.
Our students experience an exciting student life. They are offered numerous opportunities – both inside and outside the classroom – to explore their talents and develop them to their fullest.
Our willingness to continually improve is what drives the school forward. We expose students to innovations – currently we are implementing the STEAM program, to allow our students to become more creative, obtain practical knowledge, seek answers, solve problems, and gain a collection of skills coveted by 21st-century employers.
As Academic Director I set the highest expectations for all staff and students and by working together with teachers, students and parents we will enable our students to lead enriched, happy and fulfilled lives, making a contribution to the European School, Georgia and the global community.

The IB programs provide a comprehensive and coherent written curriculum based upon the highest academic standards. Our teaching methodology assists students to achieve their personal best and develop the attitudes and dispositions of true internationalists; prepared for the challenges and wonders of life beyond our school. As well as our commitment to academic engagement and achievement, we offer diverse opportunities that encourage students to discover and develop their talents and interests within a safe and supportive environment.
The IB division of the School offers three programs:
• Primary (PYP) – Grade 1- 5
• Middle (MYP) – Grade 6 -10
• Diploma (DP) – Grade 11-12

We have high expectations and aspirations for our students and we encourage personal responsibility for their studies, with the aim of achieving self-discipline, social communication skills and to consistently achieve outstanding academic outcomes. The IB program is internationally recognized and provides world class preparation for students wishing to access tertiary studies in any country throughout the world. For a decade ES has proudly offered its graduates pathways to the world’s finest Universities and tertiary institutions.

At European School we do not aim to achieve – WE ACHIEVE, and we do so by working, learning and acting together to serve a wider community, both here in Georgia and internationally.

I would like to extend an invitation to you to visit our campus and experience it for yourself.
Warmest regards,

Sophio Bazadze

Director of the European School
