Mission of MES

The Mission of Moscow Economic School is to develop a learning community where students and teachers demand excellence and engagement from one another.

Committed to excellence, MES uses the International Baccalaureate programs to motivate students in their learning, encourage them to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners, to be responsible, productive, ethical and healthy citizens, patrons of their own countries with the ability to think creatively, reason critically, and communicate effectively.

Being an «IB World School», MES aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who acquire the essential knowledge, skills, and dispositions for the 21st century, who apply their knowledge appropriately in new situations, who are open to other people’s perspectives and are empathetic to other people’s situations, who help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

Educational Philosophy

The highest priority is that education must focus on the development of every student’s potential. Members of democratic societies must inherently show respect for the law, the rights of others, and understand the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. The learner-centered approach to education focuses on developing a personality or individual for whom participation in civil society is not an imposed external obligation, but the result of internal motivation and intelligent choices.

For graduates, making wise decisions in day-to-day life is of the utmost importance. Education needs to center on the development of students values, the ability to think creatively and critically, to effectively communicate and to act decisively in various circumstances with consideration to one’s own well being and the well being of others.

Teaching the «ability to learn» is as important as the subjects themselves.
