WELCOME TO SEK BUDAPEST INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL
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. We encourage all applicants to visit our school while it is in session to witness first hand our school in action.
Founded in 1997 SEK Budapest International is located in the second district on the Buda side in Budapest. 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. Over the years, we have developed our own community with a unique character that is open and accepting of all cultures and backgrounds. With an experienced and caring faculty we help to develop all of our students to become lifelong learners and global citizens with an international perspective.
SEK Budapest offers a curriculum in English and Hungarian with the intensive language program in Spanish as 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 levels are the following: Peschool (ages 3-6), Primary School (Grades 1-8) and Secondary School (Grades 9-12).
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.
Our teachers have the flexibility to provide differentiated learning techniques to our students, which allows for more individual attention. Teachers take a hands-on approach by encouraging inquiry-based learning in the classroom.
If you are interested in knowing more about our school, please come in for a tour. We welcome visitors to our school at any time during the school year upon prior booking because we believe it’s important for people to see our daily basis activities. Of course, there’s no such thing as a ‘normal’ school day with so many things going on throughout the school year.
