welcome to our world
Welcome from our Head of School.
In September 2010, KSI Montenegro opened its doors to its first students. Now, more than ten years on, we are well-established and continue to earn a reputation as a provider of top-quality education to children of both expatriate and local families. We are also very proud to be the first and only school in Montenegro to offer all three International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes; the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP).
As an authorised IB World School, we have developed a rigorous and academically challenging curriculum that ensures we meet our school-wide learning outcomes that are driven by the IB Learner Profile attributes, thus enabling our students to be all they can be, and preparing them for an ever-changing and dynamic world. Additionally, we are licensed at all age levels by the Montenegro Ministry of Education, and have been a fully accredited school with the Council of International Schools (CIS) since 2021. Being accredited demonstrates alignment with a set of very exacting standards of high-quality education and opens doors to many of the top international universities around the world for our graduating students.
As Head of School, I consider myself extremely fortunate and privileged to be able to see the many amazing things that happen inside and outside our classrooms every day. As our school community continues to grow, so do the ways in which we enrich learning and help all our children to become exceedingly well rounded individuals, engaged and curious students, and young people with strong identities. I have long-held the view that a child with a curious mind will forever be empowered for the possibilities of the future, so it is wonderful to see our teachers continually striving to ignite and sustain each child’s endless quest for discovery, and to see our amazing students so keen to respond.
Without doubt, the strongest wish of our parents is to provide their children with the best possible opportunity of having a safe, happy and productive life; when parents visit our school, many share their desire for an environment and curriculum that helps and supports their child to develop as the unique individual young person they know them to be.
As committed IB practitioners, our teachers are experienced international educators and the driving force behind the school’s academic and pastoral success. Our classrooms are vibrant student-centred environments where inquiry-based approaches are balanced with direct teaching, with teachers actively encouraging the childrens’ natural curiosity and love of learning both inside and outside of school. They take great care to support each child’s social and emotional well-being and encourage them to apply their learning as creative, critical and reflective thinkers; confident in their own identities, able to make ethical decisions, and prepared to apply what they learn in real-world, complex and unpredictable situations.
Our website can only offer a brief glimpse of our school. We would be delighted to welcome you for a personal visit if you would like to know more and see the school in action for yourself. I really do look forward to having the opportunity to meet you, and to potentially welcoming your family to our school community.
