Welcome to QSI International School of Ljubljana

Dear Parents,

International education can be a wonderful adventure for your children, and QSI Ljubljana International School (QSIL) has so much to offer. Such important questions to consider! Where do I educate my children? How will they adjust to life in a different culture at a new school? Does a school force my child to conform to their education, or do they respect children as real persons?

What delights children the most? Most have an innate curiosity about how things work and what meaning could be attached to what they feel, see, smell, touch and hear. QSIL works with these natural giftings of each child—creating learning opportunities that work alongside their sense of wonder at the world around them and as they grow older, incredible questions emerge as well. What a privilege it is to watch them grow.
These are very important questions, of course. At QSIL, we want all our students to thrive in our educational environment, not merely survive a ponderous, test-driven education. We endeavor to partner with each family—so we will provide the fertile conditions for growth as they learn—through rigorous academic pursuits, strong emotional bonding with students, staff and parents.

We endeavor to partner with each family—so we will provide the fertile conditions for growth as they learn—through rigorous academic pursuits, strong emotional bonding with students, staff and parents.

QSI International School of Ljubljana (QSIL) offers an academic program that’s based on Mastery Learning. We assess each child for their strengths and weaknesses and foster an educational environment that fosters choices and opportunities to grow at the pace of their learning style. The rigorous program emphasizes Mathematics, the Sciences, Social Studies, English, Art, Fine Arts, PE and multiple languages as well (elementary and secondary). Nestled alongside a beautiful river, meandering through the woods also provides a unique opportunity for outdoor education. This is done in a caring atmosphere of respect for the learning process—not all children grow at the same rate, and we believe schools should be free from “cookie cutter” schools where one size fits all. We believe that the individuality of each student must be cherished and respected.

Students should enjoy their education; not because it intense entertainment or filled with lots of technological “toys” that may excite them for the moment; we want our children to be truly engaged with their thinking –how do they experience and understand beauty and goodness as well as order and design? As a fully accredited ((MSA) Pre-K -12th grade school, our students will have opportunities to thrive in music, art, literature, history, mathematics and science. Our secondary students will be offered opportunities for Advanced Placement as well. Unique to QSI schools as well is its comprehensive online program that expands class offerings even more beyond the classroom.
A QSI school atmosphere is highly sought by many parents from all over the world. QSIL offers a caring community, where students and parents feel respected and listened to as we partner together to encourage each child, whether it is the gaining of important skills or exploring the meaning of important ideas. There is a richness of learning in this beautiful city of Ljubljana—though our students will be immersed in English in all their core classes, we emphasize the appreciation of the Slovenian culture, including its language as well.

Choosing a school is a very important decision for you regarding your children. Please feel free to contact me, using the information provided on this website.

Highest Regards,
John
