The Educational Foundation is successfully cooperating with international organizations, foreign countries’ missions in Kazakhstan, schools and universities.
The Foundation has long-term partnership relations with the International Baccalaureate (IB). More than 100 IB Diploma Programme graduates of the Miras Schools in Astana and Almaty successfully continued to study at prestigious universities of the USA, Canada, UK, Switzerland and other countries of the world. Over 600 students of the Foundation’s schools have become MYP Certificate holders.
The Miras Schools are examination centers of the University of Cambridge for conducting examinations for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), and 98 graduates were awarded IGCSE Certificates.
In the framework of the agreement between the Foundation and FLM (French Laic Mission under the Ministry of Education of France) a French section was opened at the Miras School in Astana where education complies with the state educational standards of France.
Students of the Foundation’s schools often became winners of international Olympiads, were awarded by the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) and Council of International Schools (CIS) for intercultural awareness, achievements in studying mathematics and active participation in school life.
The Foundation’s schools are closely cooperating with such organizations as the International Schools Services, Search Associates and Council of International Schools in the recruitment of overseas teachers. More than 200 internationally certified teachers were employed to work in the Foundation’s schools under the support of these organizations.
Innovative activity of the Foundation’s schools allowed to create teachers of the international level who are much in demand in the world educational space. Today more than 30 of them are members of the CIS/NEASC accreditation and IB authorization teams, international examiners and moderators, instructors, consultants and leaders of IB workshops and IGCSE examiners.
The Educational Foundation is a co-founder and member of the Board of the International Baccalaureate Schools Association, and successfully cooperates with international schools in Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, etc.
The Foundation and its branches cooperate effectively with embassies of different countries to the Republic of Kazakhstan (Russia, USA, UK, France, Korea, Malaysia, China, etc.) and international organizations (UNICEF, UNESCO, UN Representation in Kazakhstan, British Council, Education First, Accels, etc.). Thanks to such liaisons the Foundation’s branches take an active part in international educational projects (students exchange, sharing experiences, teachers professional development, etc.).
