Our School

Our School

The "European Azerbaijan School" Education Complex LLC is a private school authorized by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan. The school is offering international programmes. These include the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) authorized in 2017, Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) implemented in 2015 and the IB Diploma Programme (DP) authorized in 2015. We are currently working to be authorized in 2020 with the Middle Years Programme (MYP) to become an IB World School.    The school is also a member of the Council of International School (CIS) network.

          The school has grown from the original 95 students in 2012.  Over 920 students study at grades 1-11 and at the Early Learning Centre meant for 3-5-year-old children.

While implementing different curriculums at EAS, we also adhere to the principles of inheritance, durability and devolopment. Hence, a student moving from PYP into the middle school programme has the necessary understanding and skills and s/he is able continue his education at Secondary school successfully. As an inclusive school, we give Azerbaijani and English language support to our students. Furthermore, we implement EAL  (English as an Additional Language) programme which offers high level accelerated access opportunity to the newly enrolled students for their quick adaptation to the lessons.   

In 2017 our first IB Diploma Students graduated from the EAS. The university counsellor of the school assists students with their ongoing university studies. In this way we can be adaptive and flexible to the varying needs of our diverse student population.

I am proud to mention that our well-trained international teachers working hand-in-hand with our excellent local staff successfully implement IB teaching methodology tended to inquiry-based learning, critical thinking, as well as, the realization of the students’ ideas.

Along with our academic programmes we also offer a series of student activities and clubs to enhance students’ interests, abilities, mental activities and intellectual capacities. Our coeducational sport programmes are developing rapidly. Our students actively participate in Knowledge Olympiads, in the Model programme of the United Nations Organization and in the European Youth Parliament. We have English summer camps both in Baku and abroad.

We have also seen a significant increase in our digital technology and Library resources at our school. Our students’ “BYOD (Bring your own device) programme” in the Primary and the Secondary laptop initiatives are only two of important examples. 

The Student Council of the school always share ideas, interests and concerns with the teachers and the School management and take important initiatives.

To improve the teaching and learning environment at EAS, to integrate the school and the parents in a unit “school family” a Parent Teacher Association is functioning actively in the school.

We care about well-being of our students. The main line of our strategy is to establish safe, secure and caring environment at EAS. With confidence I can say that the food we offer in our canteen is worthy of commendation. The meal is cooked in the School canteen and offered fresh. Twice a week we offer fresh juice of the fruits of the season..

EAS School Buses meeting all modern requirements and produced especially for schools provide a safe and convenient transport option between home and school. There is a bus attendant on each bus who is responsible to monitor the students throughout the journey.
