Welcome from the IB Leadership

Welcome letter from the Head of Middle and Primary Years Programmes

I am happy to welcome PYP and MYP students and families, both new and returning, to European School! The 2022-2023 academic year is the 15 Anniversary of European School, 15 years of excellence.

Last academic year, we had successful finalisation of self-evaluation periods in PYP and MYP. Now we are ready to start the next 5-year cycles of programme development.

We are very proud of our teachers who prepared inspiring and encouraging activities and events for our IB learners. PYP and MYP students will be involved in academic-related and extra curriculum-related initiatives, inquiries, exhibitions and assemblies.

We are thankful to our parents for providing valuable feedback. It gave us the opportunity to plan activities for further improvements to PYP and MYP processes and procedures.

We offer high-quality programmes of international education. Our team puts the student at the centre of the teaching and learning process to promote healthy relationships, ethical responsibility and personal challenge. PYP and MYP help students to develop the attitudes and skills they need for both academic and personal success. The IB learners’  attributes of internationally-minded people represent a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond intellectual development and academic success.

It is an exciting time to be a part of ES, and we are looking forward to a fantastic year of learning and growing together. I am very pleased to have the honour of working with the ES community and am looking forward to the new academic year-15 Anniversary of European School!
