Why Choose Meridian?

Why choose Meridian International School?

  1. Long tradition

Meridian International School was established in the year 2004 and thus it is an institution with an established tradition that continues to grow every year. With years of experience, we always try to adapt to new teaching trends and incorporate new techniques that will make learning as effective and efficient as possible.

  1. Location

Meridian is located near all public transport means, but at the same time it remains positioned in a calm, peaceful area, surrounded by parks. The primary school itself has a big garden that allows children to enjoy break-time outside in the fresh air. The area of Prague 8 is safe and ideal for children, yet it is still close to the city centre by both car and public transport.

  1. Multinational community

It is always an enriching experience to meet and get to know people from different cultures. Meridian International School is home to students from more than 50 countries of the world. This gives our students a chance to experience a great variety of traditions and lifestyles, which they can both share and learn from. Living in a multinational community teaches children respect and broadens their horizons.

  1. International teachers

At Meridian, all of our (English, Czech and French) language teachers are native speakers, who ensure that children grasp modern languages in the best possible way. At the same time Meridian harbors teachers from all over the world, with different teaching styles. This makes learning much more fun, as children get to experience a variety of learning techniques from different parts of the world. Moreover, all our teachers are experienced professionals that will always try their best to give your children a quality education.

  1. Worldwide accepted accreditation

A good accreditation is one of the most important aspects of education, as it enables students to be accepted to universities, as well as other learning facilities all around the world. Accreditation is a gate for future studies, as well as career. As one of the few international schools in the Czech Republic that is accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education, Meridian is also honoured to be accredited as both a Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and a Council of British International Schools (COBIS) centre.

  1. Friendly atmosphere

At meridian we strongly believe that in order for learning and education to be successful and fruitful, it has to also be fun and entertaining. Our team tries their best to transfer knowledge through activities that are not only efficient, but are also exciting and interesting for the students. Interactive learning is one of our main goals!

  1. Days filled with activities

Besides regular classes and lessons, students at Meridian International School have a wide range of clubs they can attend after their lectures are over. These clubs enable our students to enrich their skills and knowledge in areas that they are interested in most, or in which they have their strongest talents. Besides these regular club sessions, our teachers try to organize other activities and trips to interesting places both in and outside of Prague, to enable students to learn and spend time together away from the classroom. Children also have the opportunity to travel abroad for the Model United Nations event.

  1. Ambitious Environment

As previously mentioned, Meridian International School was founded in the year 2004, but has since come a long way. From annual reconstructions of the school surroundings, to renovation or classroom facilities, Meridian tries to create a learning environment that is modern and meets all the standards of today’s lifestyle. We are proud to say that every year Meridian gains new students, which has led to the opening of a new school building in the year 2016/2017, where the secondary and high school sections have since been moved. Meridian is a school that takes pride in growth and improvement. On average, we have a 10% annual growth in terms of the number of students (newcomers-leaving students).

  1. Small Classes

Classes at Meridian international school consist only of a small amount of students per one teacher (12 students/one teacher and one assistant in the kindergarten; 16 students/one teacher in Preschool; 1-12 grade, a maximum of 18 students per class), which ensures a comfortable learning environment in which students are able to get the individual care that is necessary for the quality of their education.
