International Primary School

Children Innovating the Future

Kosice International School (KEIS) is the only answer to the high demand for a world-class, quality education for both Slovak and Ex-pat families living in Eastern Slovakia. We bring to the greater Košice region a globally-recognised international curriculum, provided by experienced International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) teachers.

International Curriculum in Košice

To ensure the highest quality curriculum for your kids KEIS implements the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). KEIS is a Candidate IB PYP World School. This attractive and 21st-century pedagogy and curriculum, with experienced and enthusiastic educators from around the world, motivates and inspires our learners and parents. Over time, KEIS will provide education at all primary year levels. The IB PYP prepares students to succeed in an interconnected world that requires the next generation to have universal attributes and skills. Creativity and critical thinking is valued through an inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning. Students asking conceptual questions in a transdisciplinary world of learning is a crucial element of inquiry that will support their development within and beyond the school context. At KEIS we will welcome kids with all different backgrounds – Expat, Slovak and multilingual families. This year we will open classes from Year 1 to Year 7. From 2022 we will open International Kindergarten for kids of 3 years and above and secondary school from 11 years of age (Year 7 and 8). Our International Kindergarten will follow reputable International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme curriculum as well.

What is most exciting is The Learning Community for KEIS and our local and national context. KEIS is here to reshape the discourses of 20th-century thinking and practices in Slovakia, as well as drive the future progress for the entire region. KEIS is about to break through traditional educational discourses in Slovakia by implementing the PYP in the most authentic way. We are able to deliver a genuine version of the PYP which is the first of its kind in all of Slovakia. No other school in the country is equal to the quality of education KEIS provides. This will reflect an improvement in living standards in Eastern Slovakia and give people more reason to stay and return to this booming region. We also rely on local businesses, corporates and municipalities who share this common goal with us, it is our vision statement: children innovating the future .
