Student-centred | Global-minded | High-performing
Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2020, Mark Twain International School is proud to be one of the most experienced international schools in Romania. Challenging educational frontiers with its two divisions of study, Bilingual (English-Romanian) and International (English), the School has a strong portfolio of accreditations to support its mission: the full International Baccalaureate continuum (PYP, MYP & DP); the Cambridge International Education Assessment for Primary and Secondary; national recognition from the Ministry of Education via 4 accreditations covering the entire K-12 spectrum; the delivery of The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award in Romania; while also being a recognised Cambridge English Exam Preparation Centre.
At the core of the School’s approach to quality FACE2FACE, HYBRID or ONLINE education is the IB continuum: a broad, conceptual, connected curriculum, empowering students, as early as the pre-primary stage up to graduation, to achieve intellectual and academic success, and to develop a broad range of human capacities and social responsibilities. Students are encouraged to be inquisitive, knowledgeable, communicative and brave life-long learners, and to become open-minded, caring, balanced, and principled global citizens of the 21st century. Critical thinking is promoted, as they strive to reflect upon and learn from their actions.
Annual pass rates for the International and National Baccalaureate are prevalently 100%, with graduates receiving offers to date from 115+ of the world’s top universities.
Healthy relationships, ethical responsibility and personal challenge are all promoted. Over 40 vibrant nationalities are represented in the student community, and as students increase their understanding of the world's cultures and languages (including their mother tongue), they explore globally significant ideas, become confident in their own identity, join with others to celebrate our common humanity, learn how they can make a change with their own voices.
The average teacher-student ratio is 1:5, and the annual teacher-turnover rate falls below 5%, thus facilitating optimal levels of consistency, care and attention to students' needs. The faculty is well-qualified, with most holding master and doctoral degrees, and being active participants in the Professional Development programmes offered in both national/international networks.
Operating in two green campuses near Baneasa Forest, Mark Twain International School welcomes its students to over 16,000sqm of verdant open spaces and 6,000sqm of modern buildings. The school offers a rich co-curricular programme dedicated to arts, sports, and further academics, as well as student services: freshly-cooked meals, door-to-door transportation service, permanent medical assistance with on-campus doctor, counselling and support.
