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, and that every parent feels supported by a network of welcoming adults, exemplified by our incomparable Parent & Teacher Association.
At the international School of Kraków, 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, teachers and students and teachers work together in active, collaborative, enquiry 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.
Embodying our mission to develop excellence in the intellectual and personal development of our students as tomorrow’s world citizens, we strive to create an emotionally safe, academically rigorous and intellectually stimulating environment promoting inquiry, problem-solving, creativity, and critical thinking.
We respect each student’s individuality and talents as well as his or her need to develop universally needed skills and the shared values of trust, respect, integrity, responsibility and a sincere concern for others. With students from over 30 different countries from around the world and an experienced, dedicated faculty from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, and Poland, we have a wonderful opportunity to develop an appreciation for each other’s cultural differences while also embracing those fundamental things we all share.
Because, 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.
Needless to say, we take great pride in belonging to ISK and I encourage you to browse our website and visit our school to see for yourself what a wonderful place the International School of Kraków will be for all of you.
We look forward to welcoming you.
