English International School of Bratislava takes Family Engagement seriously.
We believe in the empowering effect of the family in building positive environments of student development: Student – Teacher – Family.
We not only offer students a modern education that is highly regarded worldwide but we offer entire families a community of support, opportunities and activities that can help make a home away from home.
Electives – The Academy will complete official lessons at the end of the 6th lesson (14.30/14.10 respectively), allowing students to participate in other activities outside of school. Those who choose to stay will be offered Electives. These lessons will be included in official reports.
Clubs – EISB’s Clubs program offers extra-curricular courses for students to develop skills in specified areas. The range of clubs is limited only to interest as students and parents are encouraged to share their educational preferences. Clubs are provided by school staff, external organizations/individuals and EISB parents. Over 30 clubs are offered annually including: sports, music, robotics, science, languages, coding, arts, floral design, culture, history, maths, fitness, etc. Clubs can be for groups or individuals based on request.
Masterclasses – Clubs/seminars for Adults. The classes offered based on the requests that come from the community. If there is a masterclass you’d be interested in but not yet offered, simply share your request with the school.
EISB’s Parents Association and PTA are for all community members focused on the continual development of the overall EISB experience not only for students, but also provide support for the whole family. The school encourages family involvement in ways that benefit the entire families’ experience as a member of EISB. PTA can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Culture Weeks is a wonderful program for the whole EISB community which allows each culture an entire week to promote, share, and celebrate various aspects of their culture. How each culture uses a week is up to them. There is no set program. Past activities included: presentations at assemblies, lesson plans, crafts, cooking classes, ethnic food, holiday celebrations, dress-up days for students, traditional dances, school lunches, Musical presentations etc. It is common to involve embassies, culture houses, community groups, restaurants and stores regardless of their affiliation with EISB.
As part of the EISB community, it is important that all of our foreign teachers, staff, students and families are able to spend time and energy on the reasons they are here, rather than how to function and live in a foreign country. Therefore, through the community, we provide services and support in terms of Expat coaches and relocation specialists, community organizers, translation, visa support, etc.
