Welcome From IB Director

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

The European School is a school where each student and their family are made to feel welcome and at home. Our faculty, administration, board of governors, and the entire ES community are committed partners in making our school a friendly place that provides world class educational pathways for all our students.

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 recognised 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 ES 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,
Christo Steyn
Director of the International Baccalaureate Programs
