About Us

International School of EKOLA (ISE) belongs to Zespół Szkół EKOLA (EKOLA Schools Complex, established in 1990). ISE is an international high school with International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, authorized as IB Diploma school in the year 2006. Students learn in ISE for three years:

Year 10 of education - preIB (preparatory year before commencing one's education in IBDP)

Year 11 of education - IB1 (Year 1 of IBDP)

Year 12 of education - IB2 (Year 2 of IBDP)

In ISE, we offer genuine international education, which implies coexistence of cultures, open-mindedness, multinational community of teachers and students (American, Taiwanese, German, Korean, Polish, French, Mexican, Ukrainian, Russian, Danish, Pakistani, etc), English as the language of instruction since preIB Year, and the curriculum which leads students to final high school examinations recognized by universities worldwide.

Zespół Szkół EKOLA (EKOLA Schools Complex) offers as well:

Year 1 to 6 of education - Primary School (Polish national curriculum)

Year 7 to 9 of education - Junior High School / Middle School - (Polish national curriculum with bilingual (Polish-English) teaching)

The school eagerly accepts students of other nationalities also at Primary and Junior High School. They can gradually integrate into the Polish system by intensely learning Polish with our experienced teachers of "Polish for Speakers of Other Languages" and at the same time joining selected lessons and activities with the whole class. We have extensive experience in teaching children from Korea, Pakistan, Taiwan or Ukraine using this method.

Facilities

The school has its own fine building located in the city centre, in a green and quiet neighbourhood. We have very well-equipped classrooms, most of which have interactive boards, labs (computer, science), a library, an amphitheatre hall and a newly built gym hall. In the halls and on the patio, there are places to sit down and relax between lessons. Free Wi-Fi is available in the whole school. There is a locker room where students can keep their belongings (clothes, shoes and classroom materials) safe in their own lockers. Early education year groups, Primary School, Junior High as well as International School students all have their own space in the school, allowing them to feel safe and comfortable but also to move freely to other sections and integrate with the whole school community. There is also a beautiful green area outside, with a playground for the youngest kids and a little sports ground. Meals and refreshments are served in the school canteen and cafeteria. Lunches, prepared in compliance with healthy diet requirements, are provided by a catering company every day. The school day-care room for primary school students is open till 17:00. 

All in all, our safe and cosy school environment creates perfect atmosphere for both hard work and good fun.
