Who We Are
Matija Gubec International School empowers students to reach their full potential in a supportive and challenging learning environment, preparing them for an active role as confident, caring, respectful and internationally-minded lifelong learners who are ready to make a positive contribution as global citizens in a changing world.
Matija Gubec International School is committed to educating the whole child, in an academically challenging, nurturing, and child-centred environment. We emphasize freedom of expression, independent thinking, and positive personal values and qualities while maintaining a sense of responsibility to others through respect and cooperation. The educational framework of Matija Gubec International School represents the balance between the processes and outcomes of learning and the balance of interculturalism and promotion of cultural, national and lingual identity as a part of global citizenship.
We offer a high quality education based on the inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning, that stimulates lifelong learning, develops skills and globally relevant concepts, generates good learning habits and promotes positive attitudes. Using a broad, inquiry-based curriculum we emphasize literacy; written and oral communication; the creative process of the arts and music; the acquisition and mastery of multiple languages; reasoning in the sciences and mathematics; the pursuit of a physically active and healthy lifestyle; and, technology to enhance the learning and discovery process.
As future, fully contributing members of society, our students develop as socially and morally responsible individuals, and demonstrate this through understanding and respect for others and service to the community. Matija Gubec International School develops each student’s self-worth, confidence, and pride by providing programs that make the most of our intercultural school community.
