My biggest worry ever when moving to Poland was that my son would lose a chance to learn English as his first language. The worry was over when friends told me about International school option in Poland. Ive read a lot about them and must say some have really interesting curriculums and offer a wide range of activities for kids of all ages. Today, I would like to present a few International Schools and Kindergartens in Wroclaw for you to consider when choosing a place for your Monkey!
I’m going to point out a few things about each school, I personally find interesting. These are information grabbed from websites and published with our personal opinion like every mum would have while reading it. If you feel that some information is missing or you would like to share your experience, please you are more than welcome and we will be happy to change, modify or erase it in case it would be needed, do not hesitate to contact admin.
ASW is one of the English-focused private schools open to the kids from all the countries. It teaches kids some multiculturalism for starters.
This school opened in 2011, so far it’s got around 200 students from more than 20 countries. It offers a combination of both Polish and American Curriculum programs for students from Nursery to Grade 8. Their focus is on bilingual competency – Polish and English.
There are 2 groups for our youngest monkeys. All of their lessons are taught in English. Kids this age pick up words like sponges – such a good time to start their English adventure.
For kids from ages 3 to 6. ASW wants our kids to be able to experiment and learn new classroom behaviours as a preparation for school. There are 3 groups:
Your child is 7 years old – it’s time for the fun ride to School!

They believe that the concept-based curriculum allows for deeper understanding of problems and concepts.
They have created their own curriculum based on The Cambridge Primary and Secondary 1 programmes as well as the Polish curriculum. High standards of teaching are regularly verified through internal assessment – Im guessing heaps of stressful exams and tests.

This school became on DEC 2010 a fully authorised school for the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Middle Years Programme (MYP) of the International Baccalaureate and in May 2011 they got the authorization as an IB World School. In 2014 they got the authorization for IB Diploma (DP). and It is considered the most modern school building in the country, so imagine what they must have in that school. WIS and ATUT are part of FEM, an International Education Organisation. I would go there just for a field trip if I was you. Nice to check out some architectural beauties 😉 but not only because they are the longest experienced in the market.

This school has caught my attention for some innovative way of teaching. They claim they know what kids really need when it comes to school and learning new things. Their way is to give them as much of stress free learning environment as possible. They believe they have created a better place for kids to learn new things and explore the world. This is their way to prepare kids for the adulthood and apparently it does work in Finland where the idea came from.
This is a truly fantastic school – I wish I could go to a school like this one when I was a child, however Im not sure if I would like my child to attend one like that. I wouldn’t be convinced if this school has the right tools to prepare my child for the adulthood.
