I am delighted to welcome you to the English International School, Moscow East. I joined the English International School, Moscow as Principal in 2012 having been a teacher and senior leader internationally in six other countries (including most recently in Vietnam and Thailand). Arriving in Moscow has been an interesting and exciting experience, not only by being introduced to a new culture and some truly fascinating history, but also in leading an international school at an important stage of its development.
The English International School, Moscow has now been established for over 10 years and is the pre-eminent British style school to the east of Moscow. In that time, we have taught children from over 40 different nationalities, introducing them to a British style of education that is as nurturing as it is challenging.
Parents often focus on the facilities that a school has to offer and in that respect we are very privileged to teach on a large attractive campus, with a beautiful school building, providing a secure and intimate learning environment. Classrooms are large and benefit from plenty of natural light. We use the latest technology to support learning as well as encourage traditional play amongst our younger children. Our outdoor space is equally generous, with grassed areas and space for sporting activities. We offer a full range of sports for students so everyone can be involved, no matter what their age or ability.
But I believe that a school is far more than buildings and facilities. It is a community in which everyone, from myself as Principal to the support staff, is focused on each child as a unique individual. We aim to know and understand every student and family, recognising that our partnership with parents is critical if we are to succeed in helping the children to be the best that they can be.
As a prospective parent, I hope you will arrange to visit the school. I shall be delighted to show you the excellent work that goes on here, thanks to our inspiring teachers and dedicated students. You will see what an exciting centre of learning we have at English International School, Moscow East and how we support every student to achieve his/her potential.David Lowder, Principal
