Are you looking for an International Baccalaureate World School in Romania? Here you can find a list of Romanian schools that have a profile in the IB World Schools Yearbook.
Romania has a thriving international school sector centred on the capital Bucharest that offers opportunities to follow the curriculums of Britain, Germany, France, the US, Japan, Lebanon and the International Baccalaureate.
With a handful of schools scattered across other cities including Cluj, Timisoara and Iasi, the sector also encompasses Christian foundations and bilingual schools that teach the Romanian curriculum alongside international programmes. Coeducational day schooling is the norm.
There are 10 IB World Schools. A total of nine schools are authorised to teach the IB Diploma, while three follow all three IB programmes.
Accrediting bodies active in Romania include the Council of British International Schools and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
Education is compulsory for 11 years from age six to 16 and state schools are free. Five years of primary education are followed by four years at gymnasium. A further four years at high school leads to the Romanian baccalaureate.
In the seven years from 2012, the number of children not in school soared by more than 300 per cent to 135,003. In 2019, net enrolment was 83 per cent at primary level and 81 per cent at secondary level. Gross tertiary enrolment was 58 per cent for women and 45 per cent among men.
