INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION

Mark Twain IS teachers, students and parents are able to draw confidently on a recognizable common educational framework, a consistent structure of aims and values and an overarching concept of how to develop international-mindedness.

Embracing the World

As IB World School, Mark Twain International School follows the criteria chosen to define a truly global education:

developing citizens of the world in relation to culture, language and learning to live together

building and reinforcing students’ sense of identity and cultural awareness

fostering students’ recognition and development of universal human values

equipping students with the skills to learn and acquire knowledge, individually or collaboratively, and to apply these skills and knowledge accordingly across a broad range of areas

stimulating curiosity and inquiry in order to foster a spirit of discovery and enjoyment of learning

providing international content while responding to local requirements and interests

encouraging diversity and flexibility in teaching methods

providing appropriate forms of assessment and international benchmarking

With the development of a continuum of international education – the Primary Years Programme, the Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme – it is intended that Mark Twain IS teachers, students and parents will be able to draw confidently on a recognizable common educational framework, a consistent structure of aims and values and an overarching concept of how to develop international-mindedness.
