MISSION OF MOSCOW ECONOMIC SCHOOL
Being a Russian gymnasium and an IB World school, the Moscow economic school is the place where everyone learns to be the one who makes the world a better place.
Modern educational philosophy stands on three core values: dignity, cooperation and cultural and historical psychology of a personality. The key question of the past, present and future is not only what should education be like, but also what education is needed for. It is not so important to know what to teach and what technologies to use. It is essential to understand the meaning of education. The revolution of knowledge is taking place nowadays. Adaptive models of education, based on the transmission of skills, knowledge and competencies, are getting less effective. Pre-adaptive models, that prepare universal learners, are essential. These models have one common value – learn to learn: learn to explore, learn to act, learn to coexist, learn to be. In these models, the education is aimed at letting the learner independently construct a meaningful picture of the world and make decisions in uncertain and non-standard situations. "The school of uncertainty" is becoming more and more demanded. Motivational setting "learn to learn" helps a learner to construct the reality where the changes are perceived as the norm of life. The setting "learn to learn" does not firmly outline which instruments are needed to achieve a goal. No one can certainly determine technologies of tomorrow. Nevertheless, if you are ready for the changes, you are in constant search, you construct the technologies, including the technologies of oneself, the technologies that let you accept any changes without fear.
We want to make the world around us better, so that people, regardless of their views and beliefs, live peacefully together. We want people to respect each other, be sensitive and understanding. MES is the school where everyone learns to be the one who makes the world a better place!
