Middle Years Programme (MYP)

Grades 6 - Grade 10

LIS takes immense pride in its official candidacy for the MYP, a testament to the school's unwavering dedication to meeting the rigorous standards set forth by the IB. At the heart of LIS's meticulously crafted program lies the Middle Years Program (MYP), an essential element of the renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) program.

Final Years Program (FYP)

The final two high school program at  LIS is crafted to provide our students with an all-encompassing secondary education experience that prepares them thoroughly for their journey into post-secondary education.

Ljubljana International School is a Candidate School* for the PYP and MYP.  This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education that Ljubljana International School believes is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP).  Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

Mastery Learning

At Ljubljana International School, we use the Mastery Learning Model of instruction. Mastery learning is a research-based teaching and learning strategy that focuses on ensuring students fully comprehend a specific topic or skill before moving on to more advanced material. The main goal is to ensure that every student achieves a deep understanding and proficiency in the subject matter, rather than just meeting a certain time-based requirement.

Mastery learning operates with several key principles that aim to optimize a student’s learning experience. In a mastery learning setting, students are granted the freedom to progress at their own pace, allowing them to dedicate more time to a topic until they have demonstrated mastery before moving on to the next concept. Teachers employ formative assessment techniques throughout the learning process to continuously evaluate students’ understanding, identifying areas of strength and weakness to tailor instruction accordingly.
