The 1st International School of Ostrava opened its doors in September, 2005 to provide education in English for children between the ages of 3 and 19 in one complete facility.
The Secondary school consists of the Middle school for Juniors aged 11 – 15 and the Upper School for Seniors aged 15 – 19.
The motivated and experienced teaching staff of the 1st International school of Ostrava comes from all over the world. Our student body currently represents 17 different countries and has a strong Czech base. Therefore we are very interested in all kind of international projects.
The school strives to allow visiting students to integrate as much as possible with Czech society while at the same time providing the highest possible educational standards.
The Upper School of the 1st International School of Ostrava is designed to prepare students for post-secondary education in colleges and universities throughout the world.
On May 3rd, 2011, our school became accredited by the International Baccalaureate Organisation to provide the Diploma Programme.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is the most prestigious, internationally recognised secondary school leaving examination in the world. Students who successfully complete this programme in the last two years of study are much sought after by the world's best universities.
The expectations of the IBO are extremely high, and so are ours! A big thank you to the entire staff for working so hard to make our plans a reality, and best of luck to the first group of students who will be doing this extremely challenging programme from September 2011!
