Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to New School, International School of Georgia. Thank you for considering New School as the most suitable school for your children. 

As an IB World School implementing the Primary Years Programme, Middle Year’s Programme and Diploma programme, New School’s foundations are built on developing internationally minded students. Our philosophy of “Building a diverse community of lifelong learners who are prepared to make a difference in an ever changing world” is visible in everything we do at New School. 

As an IB PYP school, our approaches to teaching and learning are based in the pedagogy of inquiry. Inquiry based learning is designed to be rigorous, challenging meaningful and authentic. All learning experiences are developed through research based strategies that are appropriate for the child’s stage of development, and take into consideration their interests and passions. The weekly schedule is well balanced with dedicated time for instruction in math, reading, writing, additional languages, science and social studies, visual art, music, physical education and swimming. 

Alongside rigorous academic expectations, students participate in a range of social learning opportunities. Our student council allows students to develop leadership skills and confidence while our after school activities provide time for traditional Georgian dance, swimming, chess and martial arts and more. Safety and the sense of well-being is an essential aspect of successful learning at New School. Children need to feel that they are secure at all times. New School teachers and Teaching assistants create a positive, caring and robust learning environment where each child feels valued and his or her contributions are encouraged and welcomed.

As Principal I will work closely with all parents to establish effective home-school partnerships through coffee mornings, parent information sessions, special events and weekly newsletters. New School welcomes parents to engage in the learning process with their children as we provide ongoing support for you to learn more about our programmes. Please feel free to arrange a visit or contact us for further information.

Best Regards,

Michael Palmer

Welcome to New School, International School of Georgia. Right from the time of its inception in 1999, the school has traversed quite a distance in its quest for excellence. At New School, we constantly strive to provide holistic education to our students. We are an IB World School and in the upper school, we offer both the Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme. Our students are invariably able to secure admission into reputed universities across the globe.

The school is located in the historic city of Tbilisi in an extremely safe and secure surrounding and has a vibrant multicultural environment. We are privileged to have a highly experienced and resourceful faculty whom we have recruited from different parts of the globe.

In today’s constantly changing environment along with the multi-dimensional challenges which one encounters on a daily basis, it is imperative for us to focus on all round development rather than having a singular objective of imparting only academic education. We take pride in the fact that our entire education system helps in moulding the personality of the students in such a way that they are equipped to take care of themselves as well as their families, society and the nation as a whole. The final objective is to broaden their vision and thinking, thereby helping them to become global citizens who have the ability to think globally and act locally. The attainment of our goals is entirely dependent on the collaborative participation of teachers, parents/guardians and students. In this context, I would like to emphasize that parents or for that matter any stakeholder in New School is always free to contact me for any issue pertaining to their ward.

It will be our privilege to welcome you to our campus and we look forward to meeting you.

Upper School Principal
