The British International School  Pechersk is a wonderful educational institution for children

Education of a child in school is a good beginning for further education in prestigious universities and an opportunity to build a successful career in the future. In today’s realities, you cannot manage without knowledge of the English language. Its study should be paid attention in school years. 

Remember that ordinary educational institutions are not quite suitable for this, but the British International School, Pechersk will provide the necessary knowledge at a high level. With advanced language studies and international exams, you can achieve your dreams in the future.

What should you know about the British International School, Pechersk?

BISU in Pechersk bets on the English language. Here all instructions are made in English for students to be able to enter prestigious universities around the world in their future. 

If we talk about features, we should distinguish the following:

  • Children aged from 3 to 18 can study here. For the youngest, there is an Early Years School. Also, it is worth noting that there is a Primary and Secondary School in Pechersk. Each Year group is ensured to have an individual approach. 
  • Children are taught different programmes. From kindergarten (Nursery and Reception) to Year 6, children study according to the British Curriculum. Starting from Year 7, children follow the National Curriculum of England. It is important to note that a private English school in the Pechersk region provides a dual programme curriculum for those who want to receive the Ukrainian Atestat. This should be agreed in advance.
  • After the learning, the exams for obtaining an international diploma take place. There is also an opportunity to receive the Ukrainian Atestat.
  • It is important to understand that not only local children but also students from different countries are welcome to study here. BISU in Pechersk therefore always maintains a warm, motivating atmosphere and friendly relations between all students. 

Each of these points has its advantages. Thanks to them, the school is in such a demand.

Which school to choose for your child?

In Kyiv, there are many educational institutions that allow children to choose the best option. It’s not just municipal educational institutions. Private schools in the Pechersk district of Kyiv are quite popular. They focus on learning English, which will allow in the future to acquire a good high education.

The international school in Pechersk, giving it students excellent knowledge, stands out among all schools. Children of different ages and from different countries can study here.

In addition, it is worth noting the following facts:

  • The British International School is a member of COBIS and the Black Sea Schools Group.
  • Apart from the knowledge, attention is paid to the comprehensive development of the child.
  • Creating a friendly, positive, and safe environment.

Education of a child is an important step on the way to successful career and happy life.
