Student Support Center

The purpose of the Student Support Center is to nurture students’ physical and psychological development. Student Support Center was established to ensure that all students have equitable access to learning, opportunities for achievement, and the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of their educational programmes. At the European School we realize that as well as academic achievement, the physical and psychological development of students is crucial to a positive and enriching school experience.

Student Support Center is dedicated to teaching teenagers how to learn and work in any environment, help them achieve social success and gain necessary skills for self-realization.

The Student Support Centre (SSC) comprises the following: Learning Support Programme ,English Language Learners (ELL,) Psychological Counseling Service, Speech and Language Therapist, School Health Service, Georgian University Counseling, Overseas College Counseling, ESTV, and English Drama Classes.

Learning Support Programme

The European School provides additional subject classes to support student learning.

Learning Service encourages and supports student-led learning through a range of elective lessons.

With a parent’s consent, teachers and students fill out relevant Student Support Center paperwork to identify areas where students need extra help. Based on the data provided, an individual and group schedule is created.

The one-on-one and group lessons are conducted both in the first half of the day, as well as later on, after classes.

English Language Learners (ELL)

The English Language Learners (ELL) Programme, supports students whose primary or secondary language is not English, enabling them to develop the necessary reading, writing, speaking and listening skills to be successful in school.

During the process of admission to the European School, students will be identified as needing ELL support. The ELL teachers work in close co-operation with homeroom teachers.

The English as an Additional Language teachers work with individuals or small groups of children who have little or no English competency. Students receive intensive regular support for several months. The English Language Learner (ELL) Programme is designed to help students become confident English learners both academically and socially. ELL classes take place during school hours as inclusion support or sheltered lessons.

English Drama Classes

The aim of the English Drama classes is to help students to practice in English, to become fluent and to raise awareness of the importance of the drama around us. Students will demonstrate the understanding that theater is the art of telling stories through acting, and observing the world around you is the first step to becoming a successful person. Students practice using their body language and voices correctly. They will be inspired to express themselves through acting. It’s efficient from the point of view of language acquisition as well, as all the activities will be conducted in English.
