Welcome to Danila Kumar International School!
Dear families and community members,
It is my great honour to welcome you to our elementary school. We are proud to be a part of more than 5,139 schools in 156 countries around the world, that are members of the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), a non-profit educational foundation based in Switzerland that works with schools, governments and international organisations to develop challenging programmes of international education with rigorous assessment.
DKIS was founded to facilitate the lives of foreign families in Slovenia by offering two reputable International Baccalaureate programmes: The Primary Years (PYP) and the Middle Years Programme (MYP – the first three years). Within these programmes we offer a comprehensive, inquiry-based and student-centred approach to teaching and learning. We focus on the total growth of the developing child – intellectual, physical, emotional and social, which we monitor and scaffold with rigorous and holistic assessment.
Beyond intellectual rigour and high academic standards, strong emphasis is placed on the ideas of intercultural understanding and respect, responsible communication and citizenship, as well as cooperation with schools and institutions both in Slovenia and abroad in order to create a better and more peaceful world.
Please take some time to explore our website and do not hesitate to contact our International department office for a tour.
I look forward to welcoming you and your family to DKIS.
Head of International Department
