Philosophy of Education
The educational philosophy at the Anglo-American School of Sofia is guided by our mission to engage, support, and prepare each student for today and tomorrow.
Appropriately challenging standards and an appreciation for the child as a whole are at the heart of our approach to teaching and learning. AAS educators use a variety of hands-on and minds-on experiences to foster each student’s natural curiosity about the world around them.
Our formal curriculum is anchored in standards and benchmarks from our Preschool program up through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program with an emphasis on teaching for understanding. Teachers use a variety of teaching techniques to best meet the unique needs of each student. At times students may be engaged in guided inquiry, collaborative research and self-discovery and, other times, they may work with a small group or receive one-to-one support.
