Avalon International School will become a great example and valuable contribution to the long list of Miskolc city’s educational institutions. In September 2019 the nursery as well as the primary school is aiming to follow the Cambridge Education’s will open its doors for children between the age of 3 and 15 with its English language educational programme. Avalon International School creates a new, inspirational and modern learning environment for the children. The whole school building (including the nursery area as well) with its stunning equipment reflects the values represented by the school for modern and state of the art facilities which will meet or exceed the technical requirements of 21st century education.
The privately owned and run educational institution provides Early Years educational programme as part of the National Day Nurseries Association for nursery aged boys and girls; meanwhile the primary school is aiming to follow the Cambridge Education’s curriculum. Our aim is that the children are taught English and introduced to the international mindedness from a very early age. We pay a great importance to the fact that besides establishing an international view and global mindedness we provide all the possibilities for the children to be able to learn about their local culture and its values by a well-balanced educational programme.
In our institution, both in the nursery and in the primary school, native English-speaking teachers educate the children. However, besides the native speaking teaching staff there will be Hungarian teachers – who speak English at an excellent level – with the aim of providing a feeling of comfort for the children in the development of their mother-tongue.
By providing the ideal small group size for the nursery (maximum 12 children per group) and the optimal size of the school classes (maximum 15 pupils per class) all the possibilities for individual care and development of the children are created. Our competence based educational methods, which guarantee enjoyable learning experiences, serve the ideology of a successful 21st century education. Both in the nursery and in the primary school, the British educational programmes enhance the children’s potential as they develop the knowledge, understanding, creativity, innovative thinking and skills personalised to the children’s individual competencies and needs. With the above-mentioned values in mind, our encouraged learning processes utilize project-based learning methods where co-operation and team work get great importance.
