Monnet International School is the first school complex in Poland to offer the programmes of International Baccalaureate Organization – at all educational levels, from kindergarten to baccalaureate.
At the same time we are one of the oldest private IB schools in Poland. We have been teaching since 1992. We have offered the Diploma Programme since 2003, the Middle Years Programme (for younger youths) since 2011, the Primary Years Programme (for children) – since 2010. Our graduates study at the best Polish and foreign higher education institutions.
We identify with IBO philosophy, which assumes a holistic development of a person. It is best summed up in the IB Learner Profile – a set of ten characteristics, which IB Programmes aims to strengthen. The strength of IB programmes is the combination of standardization and freedom. The student of our schools may be sure to attain a high level of educational competence while becoming an authentic, not just declared, subject and participant of the educational process.
The MIS school has one major problem - owner/director (one person). She appears charismatic at first sight and is quite skillful at making a good first impression - especially when recruiting into the school. However, dealing with her (as a parent of a student) was a horror story. Emotional, irrational, arrogant, stubborn. In fact, she is a perfect demagogue. She tends to have her "favourites" among teachers who are loyal to her, and these can get away with anything. Including insulting students and hate speech in a classroom.
There is a huge student turnover in the school (90% in 2 years in our child's class). And the owner has a lot to do with it. But she doesn't care. She is counting on new naive parents buying her story. Just like we once did.
Also, for 3.600 Zl a month (+lunches and various other contributions), the school doesn't offer any outdoor space children could use. Throughout the whole day, they are squeezed into small classrooms and narrow corridors. PE is organized in an external building where students have to get by bus...
Advertised as international - nearly all teachers and students are Polish, with some teachers making mistakes when speaking English.
I just can't recommend to anyone.
