IB World School Status
PSI holds the prestigious IB World School status. We are the only school in Kyiv fully authorised to teach all three
International Baccalaureate® (IB) programmes. This is only possible after a rigorous process of application and regular
review for quality assurance. As a member school of the IB global learning community, we share a common commitment to
the goals and standards of the International Baccalaureate, which complements those of PSI.
The three programs – Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme – encourage students’
academic advancement as well as promoting their development as active and compassionate community members.
PSI is the only school in Ukraine, which holds dual international school accreditation. Since 2003 our school has received
accredited member status from two premier accreditation organisations: the Council of International Schools (CIS) in
Europe and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) in the United States. This means that our
School’s philosophy, governance, curriculum, resources and staffing meet rigorous standards set by these international
school organisations. The School was recently renewed for five years (through 2017) – the longest period of accreditation
