IMS Private School, Cyprus
Background and Experience
IMS Private School is a secondary school offering a programme with no educational precedent, the Upper High School Programme, under the official recognition of the Ministry of Education and Culture, which has recently endorsed it as a secondary school under its authority. Upper High Scholl Programme is a morning school curriculum, initiated in 2014, for students aiming at top universities. IMS educators have been working towards a new type of school for many years. Tapping into their experience, they shaped a school geared for university preparation; redesigned, innovated and taken a totally fresh approach that veers far away from the dated methods still widely in use by other educational institutions; restructured the GCSE and A level subject syllabi to a new kind of learning intended to inspire and motivate. IMS’s novel morning school programme, Upper high School Programme, offers complete freedom in subject choice and is based on aptitude, so that a student’s abilities are not thwarted by age restrictions. IMS has already seen several students enrol at the age of 13 to begin studies at top ranking universities at the age of 16. Within this three year period students of IMS find themselves possessing a strong educational background of many GCSE awards and at least four A Level awards.
