Welcome to SEK Budapest
International School

Founded in 1997, SEK Budapest International School has been providing a student-centered education in preschool, primary and secondary school. The school belongs to the prestigous SEK International institution and since 2006 is also part of IES which was created to provide more effective  service to SEK schools outside Spain and Latin America.

The curriculum is mainly based on the Hungarian National Curriculum from the age of 3 in preschool through 8 years of primary and 4 years of secondary school with an option of choosing the IB Diploma Programme in 11th grade.

With over 30 countries represented in our student body, SEK Budapest has developed its own community with an international perspective. With an experienced and caring faculty, we help develop  students to become lifelong learners and global citizens.

IES Around the world

A warm welcome to SEK Budapest International School

We understand that selecting a school is an important and sometimes complex process, and our goal is to assist parents to ensure proper placement.

With over 30 countries represented in our student body, we are dedicated to offering a well-rounded curriculum that inspires a love of learning, empowering students to be better, and to reach their potential in academic achievement, performance, creativity and citizenship. Our teaching philosophy is student-centered, personalized education, cooperation between teachers and parents in harmony in serving student development. I honestly believe that caring, cooperating, and working hard together for the same goals will make our school community happy and motivated with high student results.

SEK Budapest Preschool, Primary School and Secondary School offers a curriculum in English and Hungarian with the intensive language program in Spanish as second language at all ages. There are three levels offered to our students aged 3 to 18 to help them develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. The school received the authorization as an IB World School in 2005 and since then has been offering the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme for students in Grades 11-12. However for Hungarian speakers the Hungarian National Matura exam is also available.

We welcome visitors to our school during the school year upon prior booking because we believe it’s important for people to see our daily basis activities.

If you would like to apply to our school and start the admissions process please check the information about the admission steps.

Our students have unique opportunities to participate in international activities organized by the Institution, where students from all its schools come together. Interrelation and cultural exchange are fundamental objectives of these annual activities that take place at the headquarters of one of the SEK schools.
