Baku International School is an exciting place to be. Not only do we inspire students to achieve high academic standards, but we also provide an environment that fosters a love for learning. A teaching staff are qualified professionals who bring a wide expertise of educational experience for students, 2 to 17 years old. QSI curriculum includes a rigorous course of study that prepares students to successfully enter universities around the world.
English is the language of instruction. Intensive English (IE) classes are provided for students who enter QSI and have not yet learned the English language. These IE classes are small so that the students can have special “intensive” lessons to quicken their mastery of the English Language.
