Learning Support Programme
Presently located on the right bank of the Dnipro River near the city centre, The Pechersk School International, a World IB School, offering the International Baccalaureate Programme, is part of a larger, global community of international schools. The growing expatriate international community in Kyiv has created a need for quality education. This multicultural group includes diplomats and business people who are working in Kyiv on behalf of embassies and large international companies. The school was started in 1995 by a group of parents (mainly diplomats and business people) and is a non-profit school. The school opened with 47 students from grades Pre-school through grade 12 and now enrols about 400 students. There are outdoor play areas that have been improved through efforts by the PTA. The full-time, well-qualified staff includes teachers from Canada, UK, New Zealand, Australia, Mexico, Ireland, Germany and Colombia. The language of instruction is English.
The school is a fully accredited World IB school offering all three programmes; the Primary Years Programme (Early Childhood through grade 5), The Middle Years Programme (grades 6 through 10) and the Diploma Programme (grades 11 and 12). The IB Diploma has been accepted by more than 600 universities in over 100 countries. For US and Canadian students, the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is offered. Students are also prepared for Tests of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The IB programme is compatible with the English National Curriculum.
In December 2002 the school became fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). In September 2003 PSI moved to a new, purpose-built site with over 2, 500 square metres of classroom on a one-hectare plot of land located ten minutes from the centre of Kiev. PSI is also a member of the Central Eastern European Schools Association (CEESA).
