It is truly my pleasure to welcome you to The International School of Kraków.
ISK is a wonderfully warm community that embraces each and every family that joins us, ensuring that every student has access to a world class education with people who truly care for their personal wellbeing and development. In the past five years, we have seen our enrollment increase from 138 students to almost 300, a testament to the quality of school and community that ISK maintains.
As the only school in Krakow accredited by the New England Association of Schools & Colleges, the Council of International Schools, and the International Baccalaureate Organization, you have a guarantee that we offer a world class education of only the highest quality.
We aim to provide children with an academically rigorous and intellectually stimulating environment, promoting the development of creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
At ISK we aim to ensure our students develop core academic skills and the ability to apply these skills in daily life. Through inquiry – based learning, our students are encouraged to find creative solutions to problems – a skill that will enable them to become responsible citizens who make positive contributions to the ever-changing world of their future.
Mission, Philosophy, Transfer Goals, and Intercultural Learning
Instruction is geared to the individual needs of the student. We seek to nurture a learning environment based on trust, respect, integrity, responsibility and concern for others. Our international curriculum at once celebrates the rich and diverse backgrounds of our students and focuses on concepts common to us all.
OUR VIEW OF INTERCULTURAL LEARNING
ISK empowers learners through a cooperative learning environment which encourages understanding and respect of multiple cultural perspectives. Learners gain an appreciation of their roles as world citizens through enriching experiences and reflective practice.
Regardless of where they are coming from - or heading to - all of our students have the capacity and responsibility to contribute positively to an ever changing world
