Primary level

Taking primary classes at Paradis International College gives children the chance to develop harmoniously in all sides of their personality, both academically and personally, to learn with pleasure and to come to school.

The applied part of theoretical knowledge is a priority for Paradis International College, and this is very clear from the large number of projects we run with children from primary school and beyond.

At the primary level, we follow the Romanian National Curriculum, with everything it implies: standards, benchmarks and competences, as well as learning contents and assessment forms.

Cambridge Curriculum

We supplement the Romanian national curriculum at the primary level with the subjects studied according to the Cambridge Primary curriculum (English, Maths and Science). It is aimed at students between 5 and 11 years old and is thought out and structured in a balanced way, fitting into the national and cultural context of the school. The evaluation of the knowledge acquired in Cambridge Primary involves the application of internationally established tests, called Progression tests – taken at the end of the school year, starting with the 2nd grade. These tests are applied and evaluated by teachers in the school, following the scales sent by Cambridge International Examinations. They can generate reports that show the evolution of each student during the years of study, but they can also serve the purpose of continuous improvement of education by identifying strengths/weaknesses.

The primary cycle ends according to the Cambridge structure at the end of Year 5, when students take the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint exams, which are held in school but assessed by a Cambridge International Examination specialist.
