Welcome to International School Maximilian, where students reach their potential through high academic standards and a nurturing environment!

International School Maximilian has built a curriculum around international specific needs, Starting from a foundation of core subjects, we added breadth and cross-curricular perspectives. Encouraging learners to engage with a variety of subjects, and make connections between them, is fundamental to our approach.

Our school offers a flexible and stimulating curriculum, supported with excellent resources and training.
For learners, we help improve performance by developing skills in creative thinking, inquiry and problem
solving. It is the perfect springboard to advanced study.
We develop learner knowledge, understanding and skills in: subject content, applying knowledge and
understanding to new as well as unfamiliar situations, intellectual inquiry, flexibility and responsiveness to
change, working and communicating in English, influencing outcomes, and cultural awareness. 

The international middle school program is typically for learners aged 14 to 16 years. It builds on the foundations of Secondary program, although it is not essential to have completed that stage before beginning the middle years program.

Our programmes and qualifications set the global standard for international education. They are created by subject experts, rooted in academic rigour and reflect the latest educational research. They provide a strong platform for students to progress from one stage to the next, and are well supported by teaching and learning resources.

We review all our syllabuses regularly, so they reflect the latest research evidence and professional teaching practice – and take account of the different national contexts in which they are taught.

We consult with teachers to help us design each syllabus around the needs of their learners. Consulting with leading universities has helped us make sure our syllabuses encourage students to master the key concepts in the subject and develop the skills necessary for success in higher education.

Following our International programme helps students develop abilities which universities value highly, including:

  • a deep understanding of their subjects
  • higher order thinking skills – analysis, critical thinking, problem solving
  • presenting ordered and coherent arguments
  • independent learning and research.
