Education Model

MES is a private educational institution that offers a wide range of subjects from the 1st through 12th grade.

MES is a bilingual school (language of instruction predominately in Russian but we have begun to implement an immersion program with the younger children). Beginning in the second grade, our students begin to learn a second foreign language (German, French, and Spanish). Since 1996, MES has used the International Baccalaureate curriculum for our elementary, middle, and high school programs. (Grades 1 through 12)

The preschool, kindergarten, and elementary grades (1-4) of MES follow the Russian national curriculum and the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP).

Our middle school consists of students from grades 5 through 9. Like the elementary school, the middle school follows the Russian national curriculum and the IB curriculum, the Middle Years Program (MYP). The MYP is a continuation of what the students learned in the PYP and is designed for students from the age of 10 to 15. It provides the students with a great base and introduction for continuing their studies in the Diploma Program.

By the time students reach high school they create an individual educational profile with the help of their parents and teachers. The profile is mean to be an in-depth study of specific subjects that the students can use to help them decide what they would like to study in university.
