A BILINGUAL SCHOOL
Stella Maris College offers students from the age of 3 to 18 the opportunity of experiencing education in English. Thus, students learn both English and ‘in English’ (Literature, History, Geography, Science, Business Studies,etc.).
Our programmes (University of Cambridge Primary Checkpoint, IGCSE and International Baccalaureate Diploma) not only pave the way towards bilingual certification, but also allow us to make the most of the latest developments and research in the field of international education.
OUR CURRICULUM AND THE INCLUSION OF DIFFERENT ABILITIES:
We firmly believe that every child has the potential to learn one or more languages. In our experience, students’ learning difficulties in English and those in their first language are related, and it is possible to overcome them through more personalised teaching.
Within our demanding academic framework, Stella Maris remains committed to inclusion and we have taken specific steps towards it:
•One-to-one support of students with learning difficulties
•Optional international examinations; despite this, more than 80% of our students choose to sit them.
•We value effort and a positive attitude very highly both throughout the year as well as in final assessments.
