Montessori and IB Candidate school

St Marcel International School is a unique educational institution that offers both the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP)as a approved candidate school  and Montessori education. This combination of teaching methodologies provides students with a well-rounded education that focuses on both academic excellence and personal development. The IB PYP is a curriculum framework that emphasizes inquiry-based learning, critical thinking, and global awareness. It encourages students to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand the interconnectedness of the world around them. The program is designed for students aged 3 to 12 years old and is divided into six transdisciplinary themes that are explored through various subject areas.


Montessori education, on the other hand, is a child-centered approach that emphasizes hands-on learning, self-directed activity, and collaborative play. It is based on the idea that children learn best when they are given the freedom to explore and discover at their own pace. Montessori education is designed for children aged 3 to 6 years old and is focused on developing the whole child - intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.


At St Marcel International School, students benefit from the best of both worlds. They receive a rigorous academic education that is grounded in the IB PYP framework, while also being given the freedom to explore and discover through Montessori education. This approach helps students develop a love of learning, a sense of independence, and a strong sense of self. In addition to its unique educational approach, St Marcel International School also offers a diverse and inclusive community of students and teachers. The school welcomes families from all backgrounds and cultures and encourages students to embrace diversity and respect for others.


Overall, St Marcel International School is an excellent choice for families who are looking for a school that offers a well-rounded education that focuses on both academic excellence and personal development. Its combination of the IB PYP and Montessori education, along with its diverse and inclusive community, make it a truly unique and special place to learn and grow.
