Embassy International School offers an educational experience for the international and local community of all ages, from 3 to 19, from Nursery (Kindergarten) to the end of high school exams (A levels).
Our teaching philosophy is based on our commitment to teach pupils through metacognition and recognize the importance of brain science to teaching and learning. Embedded in this philosophy are the principles of Multiple Intelligences (Howard Gardner 1983), which facilitates and inspires learning for all pupils and young people. Through our inquiry-based approach our pupils develop a natural curiosity for learning and for the world outside the classroom.
We believe that our philosophy of education instils a love of learning, it challenges pupils to develop their own minds and unique personalities, it allows us to truly know our learners and it gives us the capacity to address their individual needs.
All 3 of my children have been through Embassy International's Early Years (pre-school) department and we are very happy with the high quality of care and attention given to each child. The teaching staff are professional and attentive, understanding individual needs and characters. Our experience now, with the Primary department is equally positive. It's important to mention how the teaching community handled the very difficult pandemic school year exceptionally well. The school grounds are not very big but there is a suitable outside green space, playground for younger children and football/ basketball area. A big plus is that they offer a varied choice of after school clubs and activities. We looked at every International School in Krakow and feel we made the wisest decision by trusting Embassy with our children's education and well being.
Our family has been very well cared for at this school and we have been happy to be part of this exceptional community for the past 3 years.
There is rarely a one size fits all solution to educational needs and at Embassy the staff work hard to see individuals as unique and work with them as such.
My son is delighted with being at Embassy for his crucial 6th form studies, & being able to study Alevels here in Kraków.
He's found the teachers to be thorough & well-versed in their fields. Also, that they are attentive to his specific needs, & encouraging & supportive.
He sees them as mentors & people he can trust, as with his tutor & the Headmaster, & feels that he can go to them with any concerns or questions, & that when he does he is heard, & that advice is given & action taken, where necessary.
Now in his last year, he's found his teachers to be really focused on exam preparation & picking up on any places where he is weaker or could do with more drilling or exposure to exam skills' practice.
In my dealings with the school I have found the staff to be friendly, approachable & the 1st point of contact - the office staff - to be professional & caring & aware of who my son is & how he is doing. So there is a good family feeling there.
Several times I have come to the school with some personal issues & they have immediately helped me with them.
There is also a very dedicated PTA/communications' presence which is so important in an international school, with support & regular activities offered for parents too.
Finally, knowing the British schooling (both state & private) system & standards required well, I can happily say that this school is rigourous in its 6th form/Alevel teaching, & is delivering it at an excellent level.
