Why Choose An International Baccalaureate School

Pechersk School International Kyiv, is the only school in Ukraine that has been fully authorised since 2000 to teach all three International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes from Early Childhood (3 year olds) to Grade 12.


The IB is the fastest growing curriculum in the world and not only in international schools. Many national school systems are viewing the IB as ‘best educational practice’ and are adopting it, too. All three IB programmes (the Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma) maintain rigorous curriculum content with a focus to not only acquire knowledge but to also fully understand it.


At PSI, daily learning is conducted in nurturing and stimulating environments with the aim that each student will fulfill his/her potential through inquiry, reflection and learning that is applied to real world contexts. Our IB teachers inspire students to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective learners. Parents value the development of personal skills and attitudes relevant to the learning needs of today and the challenges of our world tomorrow. At PSI, we educate our students to be critical thinkers and compassionate citizens who take positive action in both the school and local community. We also prepare students for global citizenship by emphasising intercultural understanding and participation in global issues.


Universities and employers recognise the value of the IB programme that not only promotes high academic standards but does so in a framework of critical thinking, self-awareness and collaboration.
