From the day we first opened our middle school, parents have asked us the same question over and over: where do our kids go after 10th grade? We can now say with pride that our students will have an opportunity to complete their studies at VIS.
Beginning in the fall of 2016, Vilnius International School will open 11th grade with grade 12 to follow in 2017. VIS will do this by adopting the Cambridge International Exam Programme (CIE), also known as A levels.
After careful analysis, the School leadership, with approvals from the Board and Council have determined that CIE is the best fit for a small school like ours. It has a flexible curriculum and it allows for greater speed of implementation than the International Baccalaureate (IB)programmes. CIE allows us to maintain the same principles of teaching that you have experienced in our IB PYP and MYP sections. Most importantly, CIE is compatible with our values and mission.
On behalf of the Board of VIS, I hope that you are as excited as we are to begin this next step in our development.
Director, Rebecca Juras
