Knightsbridge Schools International to open Montenegro's first Boarding School
Knightsbridge Schools International situated in Porto Montenegro, Tivat (KSI Montenegro), is a member of a global network of independent schools originating in Knightsbridge, London. KSI is pleased to announce two major new developments for September 2013 when Montenegro will see the establishment of its first boarding school and the implementation of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP), building upon the existing Primary Years Programme (PYP).
KSI's boarding school option will be co-educational and open to for students ages 11-15. The concept of boarding schools comes from a long-standing British tradition, one where both students and teachers live and study together in a safe and secure campus environment. Life in a boarding school can offer far more than a standard day school. The Head of Boarding, Mr Colin Kay, has vast international boarding school experience including King’s College in Madrid and United World College (UWC) of Maastricht, and under his management boarders will receive a consistent first class tutelage.
KSI Montenegro adheres to the British Boarding School Standards, as outlined by the British Ministry of Education, to ensure that high standards are achieved and maintained. KSI Montenegro continues to welcome learners as day students in both the PYP and MYP classes.
As of September 2013, KSI Montenegro will begin implementing the MYP for students ages 11 to 15, evolving to include the IB Diploma Programme (DP) for student ages 16-19 by September 2015.KSI Montenegro is currently a candidate school for the IB PYP seeking authorization in June 2013. By September 2015, KSI Montenegro will offer an extensive education for children ages 3 – 18.
KSI Montenegro’s boarding school is located in the former Navy Hotel, within Porto Montenegro village, based in Tivat. The school’s wireless campus can accommodate up to 300 students with facilities including a common room, kitchen, infirmary, library, sports facilities, and dining area.
Adding a boarding option to the day school is a great opportunity for children from Montenegro to experience a first-class international education, familiar to many students at some of the most prestigious British boarding schools.
