It is my great pleasure to bid you welcome and share with you a contemporary view on the world of acquiring knowledge and skills at one of the most beautiful and most successful secondary schools in Serbia.
Conceived as a place where students learn about the world around them in a creative and modern way, International School is an inspiring environment for ambitious young people who strive toward high academic goals. I hope that you agree with me that in the modern world, which is constantly changing, it is necessary to keep up with the times and continuously adopt new knowledge. That is the very reason why we decided to merge global trends in teaching methodology, information technology and curriculum.
Offering a choice in terms of the language of instruction, Serbian or English, recognising and developing talents, fostering multidisciplinary knowledge, raising the level of common knowledge and honing social skills, give our school an advantage where choice of secondary education is concerned. Not only is our teaching methodology contemporary but also our teachers, who, with a modern mindset, use mentoring to develop students’ intrinsic motivation and their need to advance through new knowledge.
Our modern building in downtown Belgrade is equipped with state-of-the-art teaching tools and interactive whiteboards. Lightful classrooms, an amphitheatre, a learning centre, and a school restaurant provide students with a stimulating environment for an all-day stay. In the four years ahead, education at International School will be an exciting journey filled with exploration, friendship and fun. At this school, the students do not study because they have to, but because they want to!
What you learn at this school will stay with you throughout your life and give you the opportunity to mature into versatile, creative and successful creators of 21st century future. It is a great responsibility, and I hope that one day you will knock on this school’s door again, and share with us your life success. Never forget what even Newton admitted, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants”.
With best wishes for good decisions,
Svetlana Belić Malinić
Principal of International School
