Do teachers assign homework to their students?

In primary school, class teachers assign Maths and English homework weekly; this comes in many forms, such as comprehension tasks, online research challenges, activities on several educational apps, and many more.

Entry evaluation for students

Entry exams

Brief description of entry evaluation required

There are no fixed criteria for admission to our school; each child is treated individually. We do our best to place the newcomers into classes in which we believe they will thrive the most. In general, we look at how old a child is, how many years of schooling they have had, from which establishment, as well as their levels in English and Maths. A chart with the standard age of children in each year group can be found in our Handbook. A place will only be offered if we believe we are right for the child and the child will be right for our school community. Offers are only made by the school Director, in writing.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

CIS provides a full schooling programme for 6 to 18 year olds with the university entrance qualification of Cambridge Advance Levels for the older students. The curriculum at CIS is based upon the International curriculum from the Cambridge Assessment International Education, starting with Cambridge Primary and moving through to IGCSE, AS and A Level in the senior years. The integrated international programmes ensure a smooth transition through the years of schooling and provide the opportunity for students to succeed in a stimulating, externally validated and highly respected world-class educational programme. Ultimately, the qualifications which can be obtained by our senior students can open the doors to universities all over the world. From the UK to Austria, Australia to the USA, Spain and here in Slovakia; Cambridge qualifications are universally recognised and welcomed. Although we use International curriculum from the Cambridge Assessment International Education we are a truly international school and proud to be so!

Teaching approach of the school

We offer our very best to each single one of our students, regardless of age or ability, and in return, we expect them to try to become the very best version of their unique selves and to fulfill their potential wherever their skills and interests lie. As lifelong learners, our whole community espouse the learner qualities of creativity, curiosity, kindness, independence, reflection, respect and resilience, which through our associated values, help us to climb the Learning Mountain together, but with the skills and attitudes to travel alone in the future.
