An international school that focuses on preparing students for life in the ever-changing modern world.

At the English International School of Bratislava, we do more than just prepare students for exams; we prepare learners for future success and happiness by developing the following core competencies:

  • Learning how to Learn
  • Learning how to Think
  • Learning how to Reason
  • Learning how to Communicate

These four competencies are integrated into everything that we do. Therefore, we are not solely focused on what students know, but more focused on what they are able to accomplish with their knowledge. Our aim is to help students develop portfolios of experience, instead of just collecting grades.

With this approach, learners will find themselves better prepared for whatever the future has in store for them.

EISB provides a progressive and holistic education for young people from the ages of 3 to 18. It is accredited by the Ministry of Education of the Slovak Republic.

The school offers a project-based curriculum. This fosters curious minds and creative spirits, allowing children to develop and learn at their own pace. Children become confident and flexible which prepares them for our current, modern life.

Our school is authorised to offer International Baccalaureate®. programmes, making us an IB World School.

Students begin the IB Middle Years Programme from the age of 11. They are prepared for a smooth transfer to high school where they then start the IB Diploma programme. During this programme, students can choose subjects they are specifically interested in studying later on in university. Students leave our high school with the International Baccalaureate Diploma which is accepted worldwide.
