At school, each child discovers the basics of art, which helps him to develop confidence in his own artistic abilities. With the help of a specially trained teacher, children learn the basic skills that are necessary in order to express themselves artistically, and acquire the motivation to think “outside the box”, combining skilled techniques of execution and self-expression. The school stimulates and encourages children’s self-expression.
Learning literature, art and architecture, languages and history, children master and begin to respect the rich heritage of global culture. Pupils learn language skills and come to realise that language is an integral components of culture.
Striving for an analytical reading of historical sources and art literature is important for children. The school encourages pupils to seek links between the modern and ancient world.
History provides us with a system of beliefs.
In considering educational examples, we generalise, teach and, through dialogue, provide a general understanding of cultural values. Through conversation, we nurture an interest in history. Children learn that history satisfies our need for identity and provides us with invaluable understanding of generations to come.
In today’s age of globalisation and the Internet, knowledge and understanding of the overall story of the world, as well as the ability to analyse historical events, are extremely important.
The rapidly changing world of technology dictates the pace at which we learn mathematics.
Mathematical skills and proficiencies are more in demand than ever before.
Mathematics, to which we pay heightened attention throughout the teaching process, is an effective instrument for solving tasks, using studies and analysis.
Language is our main means of thinking and communication.
The ability to communicate in foreign languages is an important asset for every person in a modern world that is moving towards globalization.
Children who develop their foreign language skills not only possess more effective learning and life skills, but also a broader cultural perspective.
In addition to English, at the “International School Exupéry” we also offer pupils the chance to learn French, Latvian and Russian.
We give children proper knowledge of all fields of science including biology, chemistry, physics, as well as ecology and sociology, in addition to offering them diverse opportunities to learn about the world around them, not only in the classroom and laboratory, but also by conducting practical experiments outside school premises.
The “International School Exupéry” develops pupils’ ability to analyse and observe, as well as to identify trends and benchmarks, thus supporting their readiness to re-evaluate and question existing ideas.
Teaching programmes are devised so that children are offered a wide range of different approaches and ways of thinking, as well as to in order to increase their abilities to methodically study and critically analyse results, learning how to make their conclusions known.
Healthy children are better pupils!
Team games, individual sports competitions and regular physical activity allow children to play various types of sports and to maintain their physical health, coordination, critical and strategic thinking, as well as to develop their social skills and interpersonal relations.
