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 Pre-Kindergarten program up through to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program, with an emphasis on concept-based and experiential learning. 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, at other times, they may work with a small group or receive one-to-one support.
