Alsó tagozatosok - ISB

The vital role of the primary school is to encourage the natural inquisitiveness of children and to orient them towards a lifelong love of learning. Increasing importance is placed on motivating learning, developing critical thinking and metacognitive skills, and fostering collaboration and a sense of community in our younger learners.

Curriculum design

Primary School subjects give a strong foundation for further studies and prepare students well for the more sophisticated curriculum of the Secondary School. The curriculum develops students’ academic, social and emotional wellbeing, focusing as well on their personal development. The number of hours increase slightly as a new subject gets introduced in Grade 5. Our Grade 1 corresponds to Year 2 of Key Stage 1, and our Grades 2 to 5 are equivalent to Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6) in the English National Curriculum.
