INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL MAXIMILIAN
Mission Statement & Vision Statements
The mission of International School Maximilian with the implementation of International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program is to develop lifelong learners who seek to improve the world through knowledge, inquiry, and reflection. Our School is committed to promoting a respectful community of independent and passionate lifelong learners who are aware of their roles and responsibilities in an ever-changing world. To this end, we offer a variety of learning experiences within a supportive and challenging environment of rigorous academic programs.
International Baccalaureate learners embrace a holistic education that engages them intellectually to become creative problem solvers and socially to become empathetic global citizens. The learners participate in an internationally accredited curriculum to become confident lifelong learners.
Moreover, they create a more caring environment. The learners are principled team members and leaders who display integrity, responsibility, and respect for the values of others in our international community.
The aim of our Primary School is to balance the acquisition of essential knowledge and skills with the cultivation of the spirit of creativity and curiosity. In order to attain this balance, students
experience a well-rounded curriculum that promotes inquiry, critical thinking, communication, open-mindedness, and reflection. Pupils at this stage are encouraged to be independent thinkers and gain responsibility for their actions and choices. Our program is made up of the same core and foundation subjects covered in Preschool program. During the latter part, subject teaching becomes more defined especially in the core subjects of English, Maths, and Science. As students enter Year 6, they are prepared for the subject-oriented approach of the Secondary School and are expected to become more independent in planning and investing in their studies.
