The Relocator International Moving Quotes

What are the schools in Slovenia like?

"This is the only certified international school in Ljubljana. There are other international schools, but they do not give official report card at the end of the year. Students have to take extra test to prove their knowledge. If you have older children it is better not to come to Ljubljana," remarked another parent with kids at Danila Kumar International School in Ljubljana.

"This school is unique. The teachers and parents work closely together and seem to truly care for one another and of course the kids. The older classes are smaller which parents here love though more middle and high school students would mean bigger sports. They do a lot to make it meaningful for all ages, even though the secondary is smaller. Last year, everyone ended the year loving the school, very satisfied, and still very committed to growing and always improving. It's a great school for both my kids and my family as a whole," explained one expat living in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

"The school follows the International Baccalaureate philosophy of inquiry-based teaching. Parents should do some background reading on the IB standards and expectations, so that they can be supportive of the aims and objectives of the teaching methods," said another parent with children at Danila Kumar Elementary School in Ljubljana.
