ILS and Morioka Chuo Junior School (Japan) have signed a partner agreement making them sister schools.
In fact, the two schools have had various exchange programs since 2006, with students participating in an annual international environmental forum and teachers sharing pedagogical experience.
ILS currently has students from Russia, China, South Korea, Japan, Great Britain, India, South Africa and the Netherlands. Our international students are active participants in school life, including extracurricular activities. They write article for the school newspaper “Fox Tales”, take part in literary reading competitions and the International Children’s Jazz Festival “Pacific Fusion”, and also school concerts. Together with their Russian classmates, our international students regularly visit local museums and art galleries, and take field trips to nature preserves and other beautiful places in Primorye.
“We value our international ties greatly, and are always ready to work with new partners,” says ILS Principal Olga Shevchenko. “Our school devotes considerable attention to exchange programs and international internships, which provide a unique opportunity for school students to explore the educational offerings of other countries, improve their understanding of other cultures, as well as their knowledge of languages.”
