Carlsbad International School is an IB school offering an exceptional yet affordable academic education and boarding experience to young people from all over the world. The school has been established to meet the needs of parents who want their children to be educated in a truly international environment in the heart of Europe. The location – in the exquisite European spa & wellness town of Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad) in the Czech Republic near the German Border – offers a beautiful, safe and healthy environment for young people. The school is conveniently situated just over 100km from Prague international airport with regular flights to most major world capitals.
The curriculum at the school has been developed to enable students to excel in the IB Diploma Program, a global curriculum recognised by all top universities as providing the very best preparation for degree level study. The IB DP offers a broad all-round education for 16-19 year olds, aiming to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.
Pupils may enter the school at ages 14, 15 or 16. Under the age of 16 they can follow a Pre-IB curriculum for one or two years, carefully tailored to meet their linguistic and academic needs, before carrying on to the Diploma Program at 16. All lessons are taught in English by highly qualified, hand-picked international staff with many years’ experience of teaching and mentoring young people.
Boarding students are accommodated in separate boys and girls houses, in brand new suites with excellent facilities and comfortable social areas. Meals are taken together in a separate dining room, the Friendship Hall, and the menu is varied and international to suit all tastes. We offer an exceptional level of residential care, including a wide and varied activity programme, and structured academic support. Supportive house staff are on hand 24 hours a day.
Our students are exceptionally well prepared for university, and are provided with expert advice and assistance with applications to top institutions in the UK, Europe, the US and Asia. Our vision is to provide opportunities for life-long learning, inspire academic success, develop inquiring minds, and foster our students’ development into positive members of our local and global communities. Our international community of teachers and learners, along with our secure and luxurious new facility, truly make Carlsbad International School a great place to live and learn. Moreover, our fees are extremely reasonable in comparison with similar schools elsewhere in Europe. We can offer full and weekly boarding as well as day schooling for local families.
