Why Danila Kumar


Danila Kumar International School is an IB World School offering an international education for pre-school, kindergarten, elementary and middle school ages; located in a quiet suburb of Ljubljana, the school is only ten minutes away from the city centre and just half a kilometre from the major ring highway that circles Ljubljana.

Danila Kumar is a medium-sized, state owned school that has been offering its international programme since 1993. Originally responding to a request from the Slovenian Ministry of Education, Danila Kumar provides an International Baccalaureate elementary and secondary school programme for children of foreign nationals living in Slovenia. The Ministry of Education subsidises our school, covering more than half of the operational costs. This explains why the tuition fees at Danila Kumar are substantially lower than at other international schools.

Since the opening of the international department in 1993, teachers and administrators have worked diligently and with enthusiasm to build a quality educational programme that stimulates learning, generates good learning habits and promotes positive attitudes. It is with great pleasure that we have seen our student population increase every year; last school year, we welcomed children representing 36 different countries.

Even though our school has been growing, it can nevertheless be considered a small school: each class has from 12-20 students, which provides an excellent teacher-pupil ratio. The teaching staff at Danila Kumar prides itself on maintaining a close rapport with each of the students; in fact, all visitors can feel the atmosphere of friendly camaraderie.

You are welcome to visit our school. Please contact us to arrange a meeting (inter@os-danilekumar.si). We  look forward to meeting you!
