Discover Our School
IPS Macedonia is a private school open to students of all nationalities between the ages of 1 to 18 years. We offer a high-quality educational platform, recognized by the International Baccalaureate.
IPS Macedonia’s philosophy is to support the educational path of students from infancy to adolescence, in a safe, caring environment. We encourage students to try new things so they can figure out what inspires them. Despite the academic preparation, we are deeply committed to helping prepare young people to thrive in a complex, global community. That means we focus on the whole person, on character development, as well as on their academic progress. We prepare students to unlock their highest potential and contribute to the community and the world in which they work and live.
As an IB Continuum school IPS Macedonia offers the three programmes: The Primary Years Programme, The Middle Years Programme and The Diploma Programme
In the Primary Years Programme, the school offers a play-based learning approach through the Early Years, allowing children to discover the world around them and supporting the development of the whole child. Through play,and inquiry children develop an essential set of skills and they develop as readers, writers and mathematicians, and a sense of wonder is fostered as they grow socially, emotionally and academically.
The Middle Years Programme encourages students to be active learners who ask challenging questions, allowing them to continuously make meaningful connections between their learning and the world outside the classroom. During the MYP, our team of experienced teachers accompany and guide students on their learning journey. Emphasis is placed on individual growth and encouraging students to reflect upon their learning. Teachers facilitate students’ learning and help prepare them for the rigorous demands of the IB Diploma Programme.
The Diploma Programme is a pre-university course of studies, leading to examinations, designed for secondary school students between the ages of 16 and 19 years. Designed as a comprehensive two-year curriculum, it allows its graduates to fulfil the requirements of various national education systems. The Diploma Programme prepares students for university and encourages them to ask challenging questions, learn how to learn, develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture and develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures.
