Heritage – international school

Bogdanka Adamu, director, Heritage International School:
"Our school is special for several reasons. First of all, learning will be carried out both in pupil’s native language (Romanian or Russian), and also in English. Our academic staff comes from various countries of the world, and native speakers will support children in all linguistic subtleties necessary to acquire knowledge and speak English fluently. Also, children will pursue a combined national and international curriculum, that complies with all recommendations of the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Moldova, along with the innovative International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and Cambridge Assessment International Education (Cambridge International). Thus, when graduating from the Lyceum, students will qualify for both: national baccalaureate exams, and the tests for Cambridge International Certification, and will get a national and an international diploma, which will favor their admission into reputable tertiary institutions all over the world."
