Student-centred | Global-minded | High-performing
Celebrating its 28th anniversary in 2023, 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, Global Bilingual (English-Romanian) and International (English), the School has a strong portfolio of accreditations to support its mission:
Curriculum & Student Profile
At the core of the School's approach to premium 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 wide range of human capacities and social responsibilities. Students are encouraged to be inquisitive, knowledgeable, communicators 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 150 of the world's top universities.
Diversity & Inclusion
Healthy relationships, ethical responsibility and personal challenge are all promoted. Over 50 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.
Teacher-Student Ratio & Faculty
The average teacher-student ratio is 1:6, 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 programs offered in both national/international networks.
Green Campus & Student Services
Operating in two green campuses near Baneasa Forest, Mark Twain International School welcomes its students to over 16,000 sq.m of verdant open spaces and 6,000 sq.m of modern buildings. The school offers 40+ extracurricular classes dedicated to arts, sports, and further academics, as well as student services: freshly-cooked meals, pastry/bakery onsite, door-to-door school bus service, infirmary with on-campus doctor, well-being, counselling and mental health support, special home delivery of school resources/care packs, parent support.
