We are proud to announce that Exupery International School has received the status of an international school in Latvia.
On June 19th, the State Education Quality Service of Latvia awarded the international status to Exupery International School (EIS). The new status gives our pupils of the school the opportunity to study following international educational programs in English and receive international diplomas, which are recognized in Latvia and in other countries around the world. The status of an international school will also allow graduates of grades 9 and 12 to choose whether or not to take the Latvian standardized exams, or whether to only follow the international program for which the school is accredited.
The list of educational programs at Exupery school includes the Cambridge Educational Program for students aged 11-14 and 14-16 (Cambridge Lower Secondary / Cambridge Upper Secondary) and the Cambridge Advanced Program (Cambridge International Advanced Subsidiary Level and Advanced Level).
EIS also offers International Baccalaureate Programs: the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (DP).
Pupils of international programs will also have the opportunity to study the subject "Latvijas mācības", which goal is to get acquainted with the language and culture of Latvia. The course was developed by EIS school in accordance with state regulations and will include the study of the culture, language and history of Latvia, as well as geography.
According to the school's director Dmitry Vinogradov, the new status will not only allow to implement various international programs, but it will also allow to be more flexible in terms of class schedule: EIS will not have to follow the schedule of the Latvian holidays anymore, as it will be possible to vary the number of school days in accordance with international norms.
Exupery International School is the first and only international boarding school in the Baltic States; it was founded in 2016.

One of the strongest and most interesting points of our school, is the possibility for students in grades 10, 11 and 12 to choose between the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and the Advanced Levels.
