Andersen International School is a place where children can thrive socially, academically and creatively. We want the children to be the best that they can be. We have a dedicated team of teachers, support staff and management who create a caring, productive atmosphere. We prepare our students for any challenges that they will meet in today’s world and to become responsible citizens to make valuable contributions to it.
Andersen wants to be a space where children of every nationality learn to live together and interact through the use of the English language. Our goal is to create an environment where students can find common ground for interacting, experiencing and discovering the characteristics which make different cultures both unique and the same.
For this reason our classes’ structure is never frontal. Instead desks are positioned in groups of four or six, aiming at promoting group work and interaction between pupils and teachers. This use of space creates a friendly setting where the explanation of the various topics is delivered to the class in a multifaceted, always stimulating way. At the same time the English National curriculum is designed to develop children’s independence, both within their physical and cognitive skills and this focus is carried from school to home by the important intervention and participation of parents.
