“Building a foundation of accelerated learning”
At EISB, we combine Project-based learning with English National Curriculum taught by skilled Native English speakers offering the most dynamic primary education in Slovakia.
What is Project-Based Learning?
Project-based learning is a dynamic approach to teaching in which students explore real-world problems and challenges with a hands-on application of their in class learning. They learn through questioning, inquiry, and critical thinking in completing tasks; in short, learning by doing.
At EISB, Students don’t merely learn facts and figures, they learn how to use facts and figures to reach a goal which in most cases, is completing projects.
In the end, the students have a well-rounded approach to learning which, beyond the mastery of core subjects, includes the development of creativity and social skills.
Preparing skills for the 21st century
- personal and social responsibility
- planning, critical thinking, reasoning, and creativity
- strong communication skills, both for interpersonal and presentation needs
- cross-cultural understanding
- visualising and decision making
- knowing how and when to use technology and choosing the most appropriate tool for the task
Every Child is different.
At EISB our teachers have the ability to work with students of different learning levels and learning styles and, even in groups, help students to meet individual goals.
It is the ONLY Primary (ZS) School in Slovakia with accredited student-centred curriculum.
All Year Groups in the Junior School use a comprehensive International Primary Programme as the starting point from which to deliver a curriculum that is broad, balanced and gives us the flexibility to extend your child’s learning far beyond the standards set by the English National Curriculum. Our timetable has been designed to ensure that academic subjects are studied during the morning teaching sessions, while the afternoons are given over to creative and athletic activities, languages, media studies and our Individual Development Programme. Adequate teaching time (5 sessions per week) is provided to fulfil the requirements of the Ministry of Education for native Slovak children.
The Junior School’s aim is to prepare children to be successful as they continue through their educational career. The cornerstone of our philosophy is that a child’s time with us should be an enjoyable as well as an enriching experience – one that they will wish to pursue throughout their lifetime. Through creative learning we aim to promote independent thinking and student initiative in a relaxed but secure learning environment that will provide the foundation for your child’s future success and well-being.
