- Education as per British Schools Overseas standards for Primary and Secondary education.
We teach and educate children in a wealth of Bulgarian and English Language, literature, culture and history. A high level of literacy and the ability to express oneself properly are part of our School Community Values.
At St. George International School & Preschool English is considered a native language, not a second language. We communicate in English not only during classes, but also during breaks, lunch and extracurricular activities.
St. George International School & Preschool applies the latest innovative teaching methods - interactive and electronic educational resources, project work, cross-curricular links and workshops. Their implementation expands the learning process and develops skills for searching, analyzing and synthesizing information, builds presentation skills, the ability to work effectively in teams, leadership and planning.
Alongside the strong academic programme, St. George International School & Preschool is equipped with high-tech scientific and PC labs, where our student not only explore the world of Science, but they create Science. The subjects that form the Sciences – Biology, Chemistry and Physics do not represent dull and incomprehensible matter, but these give an opportunity to perform genuine scientific experiments and to acquire practical skills and knowledge.
Specialized rooms for music, performing arts and fine arts, create conditions for developing students’ talents and fostering their creativity, self-expression and social skills.
We cultivate a love of reading in our students at the earliest age and encourage them to enrich their vocabulary.
The structure of the academic programme allows us to integrate students coming from foreign schools, and students from St. George International School & Preschool to be easily integrated into other schools in Bulgaria and abroad at every stage of their education.
At St. George International School & Preschool, we believe that learning is a dynamic process of searching and understanding, full of curiosity and aspiration for development, love and support. The students are encouraged not just to memorize things, but to build their own sense of understanding which to be shared with others. With mutual support and respect, we establish a community where our children advance and grow.
The classes provide unlimited opportunities for acquiring knowledge and for expressing their individual talents and abilities. This way the children discover a love of learning – for the sake of knowledge and the confidence it gives them!
