Our Motto: A place where we belong.
At PSI, we highly value our vision statement:
We grow. We lead. We succeed.
PSI Mission Statement
At the beginning of the 2016 - 2017 school year, we launched our revised Mission Statement, created by a committee of teachers, parents and administrators, with input from all segments of our community.
Pechersk School International is a diverse learning community
which provides an academically challenging programme
in a student-centred environment.
As an IB world school, PSI is committed to developing well-rounded global citizens
by promoting personal excellence in the classroom and beyond.
PSI's Core Values
During the 2018 - 19 school year, PSI engaged its community: faculty, students, staff and parents, in a six month-long process to identify our core values.
We value acting on strong moral principles that build trust within our community.
We value respect and understanding for each other’s individualities, cultures, beliefs, ideas and needs.
We value a diverse community where everyone is safe, included, appreciated, and feels free to be themselves.
We value a joyful environment that promotes a happy and motivated community.
We value creativity, inspiration and passion in everything we do.
PSI recognises the responsibility of nurturing a diverse, equitable, and inclusive global society. Together we aspire to create a harmonious community where each person feels that their whole identity is known and respected. We commit to persevering together as we face the inevitable challenges in our ever-evolving journey to create a just and peaceful world.
Definition of Learning
PSI, as an IB World School, defines learning as a holistic, purposeful, learner-centred and inquiry-based process. At PSI, learners engage in a personalised journey of discovery, reflection and action, which is motivated by their passions and interests. Recognising that learning is limitless, individuals collaboratively build their knowledge, skills and understanding in academics, arts, athletics, and service, with the well-being of themselves and the wider global community in mind.
