Welcome to the Embassy International School
Exclusive education based on best British standards
“Our vision is to create a community of internationally minded global leaders who care about making everyone’s tomorrow a better tomorrow.”
Our Mission Statement
We aim to realise our vision through teaching young people how to be effective learners and seeking through our own examples to inspire and empower them to use this learning to engage with themselves, their immediate environment and our global village with the aim of contributing to our world community. As an organisation we aspire to model our vision for our learners.
What makes us different?
We are distinguished by the following points:
Our frequent use of team teaching to support effective lesson differentiation and highly individualised learning for each child;
- The International Primary Curriculum and its inquiry-based learning approach combined with
- Our structured use of direct instruction in specialist curriculum areas;
- Teaching metacognition (children learn how to learn);
- Our use of English as the school language;
- Our combination of international and local teachers.
The Embassy International School offers an educational experience for the international and local community of all ages, from 3 to 19, from Nursery (Kindergarten) to end of school exams (internationally renowned A levels, eventually IB Diploma programme). Our teaching philosophy, based on the principles of Multiple Intelligences (Howard Gardner 1983), facilitates and inspires learning for all children and young people. Within this framework all children learn to believe in themselves and their potential; we show them how to love learning, how to seek to challenge themselves and how to develop their own minds and personalities. We do this in a warm, family atmosphere where our small class sizes and impressive pupil:teacher ratio allows us to truly know our children and gives us capacity to address their individual needs.
The working, teaching and learning language of the school is English. Our classes are conducted in English (with the exception of Polish for Polish citizens).
The Embassy International School is located in customised and extensive city centre facilities, with our own outdoor soft surface sports field and a playground for smaller children. Situated in the city centre, we have easy access to the tremendous cultural and historical sites of the Royal and Ancient City of Kraków as well as easy communications to residential areas.
We hope our website will give you some insight into the school, but also warmly invite you to make an appointment to come and visit us. We love talking to new friends about education, and we would love to talk to you.
