ABOUT THE SCHOOL

Nazareth Primary and High School in Warsaw Mokotów was founded by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth in 1919. The school is accredited by the Polish Ministry of Education and the International Baccalaureate Organization (2004). 

IB DP in Nazareth High School 

The purpose of our high school is to prepare  15-19 year old girls for university and college. Education lasts four years 
during which students participate in two programmes. The first one consists of two years of preIB curriculum supporting 
students in mastering their English language literacy as well as helping to familiarize them with the demands of 
academic writing and research methodology. The key focus, however, is put on developing students’ skills expressed in the IB Learner profile.

‘internationally minded people, who recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help a better and more peaceful world’

The last two years of high school cover the IB programme, described in detail in THE DIPLOMA PROGRAM

What makes us different from other IB schools? 

  • We are the only IB school in Warsaw offering boarding house accommodation for high school students. Our dormitory is located in the western wing of our monumental school building, designed and built in the interwar period (1926).
