Welcome to QSI Montenegro!
One of the newest countries in the world and the most recent country to join NATO, Montenegro is also an EU candidate country. Also, with its magnificent natural beauty, Montenegro is a destination country for tourism. For these reasons, and more, diplomatic missions, NGOs, and multinational companies are locating in Podgorica, driving a need for high-quality international education. Although not a large school, with 70+ students, 20 nationalities are present in our student body. We fully recognize the important part a school plays in a family’s decision to relocate. We take this role seriously, and will do all that we can to provide that quality school environment for each and every student whether they be 3 year old or 18.
