I am an Indian, recently came to Poznan and want my child to study in International School. I know there are two International Schools in Poznan. Would seek opinion of the people who has their children studying in International School in Poznan, which school is better?

Can I get some Indian's contact nos if they are living in Poznan.
Regards

How old is your child? Depending on their age, I might be able to advise a better option that either of the "international schools" here - both of which are quite poor.

Neither of the two international schools are particularly good, unfortunately.

However, at a push - pbis.edu.pl - is the better of the two. The other one is dire, and doesn't even achieve particularly good results. Both schools aren't well funded, neither of them offers particularly great education - but the one I linked you to is perhaps the better of the two.

Bloodbath in the English teaching market at the minute in Poznan - unless you have qualifications and preferably experience, don't expect much in the way of work, and what work will be offered will be very poorly paid.

Other sector? You can check out the Easyjet call centre located near Rondo Kapionera - they're happy to employ native speakers of English.

Pbis has very "small" secondary school. Last year there was no gr. 7 because no kids of 12/13 years old! Teachers are Polish just like in international school. At Isop are at least 2 Indian families.

Hi,
I write from the experience of your friends and ISOP looks more professional, but there is a child-friendly vibe there. Instead require teachers to teach and students underestimate the assessment - what is their motivation to learn ... Every year, some children drop out of school there. I really careful before you decide.

PBIS is housed in an old building on subberbian but has good teachers, student friendly, personalized education.

There's a demand and there's also an oversupply.

Honestly, i think that it is better to your kid learn Polish.

Not just because this is a language that can be useful while you are living here and your kid will not feel isolated outside home and school.

But also because Polish is a language that can be very useful to develop language skills in your child at early ages and them improve her/his performance in many other subjects like Math.

Hi Kavita. I'm a teacher. I have taught many Indian children in the 3-6 year age group. Now my experience is of teaching Indian children in Ireland but they didn't speak any English so it was the same situation for the child as it would be in any country where they didn't know the language. All the children I taught, some younger than your daughter, settled in within a few weeks and were very happy. Within about six months they were communicating in very basic English. At that age children can play together without needing to use much language. However, how easily your child settles, depends to some extent on the teacher and whether they are accustomed to dealing with children who don't have the local language. The teacher needs to be kind, patient and understanding.

By the way Kavita, when you talk of school, for a child of your age in Poland, that would be pre-school and your child is unlikely to be doing any academic work in the way she might in an Indian school. I taught many Indian children of your daughter's age whose parents expected their child to be learning to write, read, do basic maths etc. As far as I know they don't do this in Polish pre-schools but it may vary. For example if you put your child in a Montessori she should be facilitated with reading and writing if she shows readiness.

As you're only going to Poland for a year, I would try her out in a Polish pre-school just for the social aspect. As I say, if she has a good teacher she should be fine there. If she's already started reading and writing, just carry on with her at home and let her enjoy playing and mixing with other children at the pre-school. Any other advice I can give you, don't hesitate to ask.

Dear Delphiandomine,
I can afford or not that's not an issue. School quality is an important thing. If you know about the school fees then let me know as well. Thanks in advance.
