Are you looking for an International Baccalaureate World School in Montenegro? Here you can find a list of Montenegrin schools that have a profile in the IB World Schools Yearbook.
One of Europe’s youngest nation states, Montenegro has seen steady economic growth since it declared independence from Serbia in 2008. It is now home to several private, English-medium international schools centred on the capital Podgorica and coastal town Tivat.
There are schools offering the curriculums of the UK and the US, as well as two IB World Schools that are authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma, Adriatic College and KSI Montenegro. While most are coeducational day schools, KSI Montenegro has offered coeducational boarding for students aged 11 to 18 since 2013.
The through-train school, which admits children from age three, is authorised to offer all three stages of the IB programme and follows a British model of pastoral support. Set up in 2010, it is part of UK-based international education group Knightsbridge Schools International.
Education is compulsory and free for nine years from age six to 14 inclusive, which corresponds to the elementary stage of the public system. Secondary schools are divided into gymnasiums, which offer a four-year academic programme, professional schools and vocational schools. Teaching is in Montenegrin.
Montenegro has one public university and two private ones. In 2021, net enrolment was 98 per cent for primary schools and 90 per cent for secondary education, while gross tertiary enrolment was 56 per cent, according to UNESCO.
IB World Schools are part of a thriving international school sector in Montenegro. For information on all international schools, you can visit: www.internationalschoolsearch.com
