What: International School of Monaco Open Days
When: Tuesday 15 March (prospective Early Years and Primary parents)
Thursday 17 March (prospective Middle and Secondary School parents)
The International School of Monaco prepares students from three to eighteen years of age for a challenging bilingual environment that encourages academic excellence and personal growth, leading to the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, in which the school has enjoyed an impressive 99% pass rate during the past eight years.
Conveniently located in the heart of Monaco, on the beautiful harbour front of Port Hercule, the school prides itself on its small class sizes and individual attention for each child, all of which will be much in evidence on two separate Open Mornings on 15 and 17 March when the school opens its doors to the public.
The Open Days
As well as observing lessons in progress (they will be normal school days), visitors will be able to see for themselves the school’s impressive facilities, including three distinct Learning Hubs with their extensive library research facilities, state-of-the-art science laboratories and the Performing Arts centre with music practice rooms, an art room and space for movement and drama.
There will be specific presentations on the school’s distinctive bilingual curriculum in the Early Years and Primary Schools and an overview of the I.B. Diploma (International Baccalaureate) programme.
When looking for a school there’s an inevitable host of questions waiting to be asked, about lessons, exams, sports and activities, and so on. Teachers will be on hand to answer all of these. But one key set of questions – what is the atmosphere like? Are the children happy? Is there a buzz of interest and excitement about learning? – is best answered by the visitor’s own experience.
