Empowered together
through our diversity

At the International School of Krakow, we believe that our students should be empowered to be creative and critical thinkers, encouraged to discover and pursue their individual passions and talents in a supportive and caring community. Every day students and teachers work together in active, collaborative, inquiry based learning experiences, drawing upon our diverse intercultural backgrounds. Everything we do is intentionally designed to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes which our students will need to find success as global citizens. Because regardless of where they are coming from - or heading to - all our students have the capacity and responsibility to contribute positively to an ever-changing world.

application process

Choosing to apply may just be the best decision you ever make ...

Our application process is managed by Admission Director Malgorzata Gonet-Mroczka, but it includes input from our principals, counselors, and learning support specialists as well.  Depending on the age of your child, there may need to be academic and language testing, and we require previous school records as a part of the evaluation process. Most important, however, is meeting each student so we can get to know each other.  Parent interviews are also essential so that we can come to know both your family and your expectations, and so that you can come to know who we are and what we have to offer your family as well.

Ultimately, our goal is to ensure that, if we accept your child, we will be able to help him or her to excel and be happy.

Tuition and Fees

As the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for."

As a non-profit institution, that also means that what you pay goes directly toward the education of your children.

Unless prior arrangements with the Director have been made, all fees are due prior to the first day of school, on the first day, or at the time of admission. Fee payments may be made on a yearly, semester or monthly basis. In the latter case, a 10% extra charge applies. If there are any problems regarding payment, they must be discussed with the Director or Business Manager.

All rates are quoted in PLN from the school year 2018-2019 and forward.

Application Fee
A one-time non-refundable application fee is charged to all new students upon filing the completed application with the school. A child is not considered officially enrolled until tuition and fees have been paid in full according to the agreement between the school and parent(s).

Frequently Asked Questions

About ISK’s early Years Program

Request Information:

  • chevron_rightHow do I know that my child is ready for the Early Years Program?

    Children are best ready to join the Early Years Program when they are toilet trained (not wearing diapers/nappies), have had the experience of playing with other children, are able to communicate by speaking and can separate from parents when left with another family member or babysitter.

  • chevron_rightHow can I help my child prepare to be ready for a full-day program?

    Parents can help prepare their children for the separation that happens at school in a number of ways. Explaining to your child what will happen during the day and reminding him/her that you will see each other after school is important. Showing enthusiasm for your child (and putting on a happy face, even if you are a bit sad to leave your child for the day) is always helpful. Reading books to your child about the fun that happens at school can help your child become more familiar about what to expect at school. If your child has not yet spent any time away from you, it is best to ease into the transition of leaving him/her at school for the whole day by arranging short play dates with other children where you leave and come back later.

  • chevron_rightI’m concerned that my child will cry when I will leave him at school. How can I help prevent this?

    It is normal for children to cry during the first week or so of school. Please talk with your child about the fun he/she will have when playing with friends. Make sure to remind your child that you will always see each other after school. Being punctual when picking up your child at the end of the day is crucial in building the trust between you and your child that you will see each other again at the end of the day.

  • chevron_rightWhy does the school have sleepy time / quiet time?

    A child who gets enough rest is ready to learn and best prepared to control his or her own behavior. Even if your child does not fall asleep, the quiet time is calming and a necessary part of a very full day at school.

  • chevron_rightCan my child bring toys to school?

    Yes! We highly encourage bringing one soft toy or personal object to help your child feel comfortable for quiet time. Any valuable toy or object should be kept at home where it will be safe.

  • chevron_rightWhat type of food should I be sending with my child to school?

    Nutritious, fresh foods with water are the best choice. Researchers found that when kids eat better, they learn and behave better. Hearty soups, salads, fruits and sandwiches with whole grains can all be packed in insulated containers to stay hot or cold. Please avoid sending sweets for snack or lunch. Sweets make kids tired, hungry and less attentive shortly after eating.
    Lunch Ideas:
    Sandwich or wrap with cold cuts, cheese, lettuce, tomato or other vegetables
    Soup in a thermos with dinner roll or croutons
    Meat roll-ups with bread sticks
    Peanut butter sandwich
    Pasta with vegetables
    Snack Ideas:
    Oatmeal based cookies
    Granola or oatmeal based bars
    Cheese & crackers
    Veggies with dip
    To drink: juice or water. No soda please!

  • chevron_rightMy child still needs help with eating, washing and dressing herself. Will someone be helping her when she is at school?

    We encourage the children to learn independence, however at first the child can count on our help. We urge parents to allow enough time for their child time at home to try and practice eating, washing and dressing independently.

  • chevron_rightHow should my child dress for school?

    Clothes which the child can put on and take off independently are best, for example: shoes with Velcro, mittens rather than gloves, etc. Your child will get dirty, so clothes that are easily washed are recommended. Layers of clothes are more versatile than one warm piece of clothing. Accidents do happen, so a spare set of clothes (including socks and underwear) is needed.
