Welcome to ILG School

Welcome to ILG School

ILG School is an institution founded and run by parents and teachers having our focus on the development of an independent and happy child by ensuring that all our children love to learn.

We at ILG School are proud to announce our expansion to secondary school. The School Board together with staff have spent a vast amount of time and dedication to create the ideal environment for the school to continue to grow towards a full Secondary school beginning this year with the opening of grade 6. 
 
Opening grade 6 for the 2017/2018 academic year is the first step in expanding the school through to the end of secondary school. In order to prepare for this growth we have begun expanding our campus with our new buildings opening in September 2017. A new cafeteria building and external sports area are also planned for 2017/2018. Parents, teachers and the administration are working together to create the ideal campus through the renovation and design process; working hard to provide spacious and modern classrooms for our students  that will help encourage them to strive to make the most of their  curriculum and general learning environment.
 
Within the new three building campus we will have an indoor pre-school playground, pre-school music room, pre-school art room,  pre-school cafeteria, and school indoor sports area, science laboratory, drama and music auditorium, cafeteria, multimedia room, art studio, library, outside sports area, playground, and ESL rooms. 
 
Since accreditation we have continued to work with our international accreditation team and engage all members of our school community into maintaining our quality education and the warm family atmosphere that we are so proud of.  At the same time we are further investigating how we can broaden our services across the curriculum so that the school grows with our students and remains the school where ‘we love to learn’.  
 
We have also engaged in a comprehensive process of review of the service we offer to not only our international body of students but also our local student body that continues to grow within our community. We are proud of the results we achieve with our English learners through our ESL support program and recognize that we also need to support our local students to obtain competencies in their native Albanian language. As of this September we are incorporating  the Albanian language for the native speakers into our curriculum. French will continue to be the second language and afterschool activities offer further opportunities to join other language classes.  
 
Based on the Common Core Standards we will continue to provide the best latest textbooks form US publishers and other classroom resources, including manipulatives, educational games, software, and other additional materials, in order to reach all students by providing an inspiring and meaningful educational experience.   
 
At ILG School we continue to administer the computer based achievement test Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) that creates a personalized assessment  by adapting to each student's individual learning level—measuring student progress and growth for each individual precisely. DRA is another standardized reading test that helps us determine whether students are reading on, above, or below grade level. The main purpose of these assessments is to improve the student learning experience by using the information gained to determine the next teaching and learning steps providing the best possible support for each child.  
 
Our partnership with parents is key to our strong foundation. Serving in the highest governing body, the General Assembly, parents ensure that their children are getting the best education. Those serving on the Board provide their input and make important decisions in budgeting, policy making, and maintaining the high qualities of the school. Whilst members of the PTA and school Committees provide an invaluable support to both the school and our students. We encourage all parents to become involved in these bodies and be active members of our community bringing their expertise and vision to the school today and to our continuous improvement process.
