Welcome to SEK Bucharest International School

SEK Bucharest International School is leading the way in delivering a world class international education in the Bucharest area.

International Education Systems is one of the few international organisations in the world to offer a structured programme of studies from Early Childhood Education (pre-school) through to University level studies.
The IES schools are officially recognised by the relevant national education authorities and all qualifications offered have both national and international recognition.

Therefore, all awards made by the IES schools are also fully recognised both nationally and internationally; whether these be in the pre-school, primary or high school levels.

IES schools are members of The International Schools Association and offer, where appropriate, qualifications awarded by Cambridge International Examinations and the International Baccalaureate, and locally are members of major school associations such as the Florida Council of Independent Schools, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (USA), the Independent Schools Association (UK), the Independent Association of Prep Schools (UK), and the Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa.

IES Around the world

A message from our headmaster


As part of the International Education System, 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. As an International School, our students have the opportunity to visit, study abroad, and participate in yearly trips organized in one or more of our sister schools around the world!

As educators, our main mission is to bring inspiration, knowledge and innovation for each of our students, in order to form global citizens with the ability to lead. Through dynamic programs, we strive to develop future leaders who are collaborative, communicative, enquiring, respectful and creative individuals with a passion for a lifelong learning.

SEK BUCHAREST INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL opened its doors for the first time in Romania in September 2022, with Kindergarten and Primary School programs autorized by the Ministry of Education (O.M.E 4845/29.08.2022). As our students will grow, we will expand our academic offer to Middle and High School education.

We look forward to your visit!

What makes us different

Our Mission

The International Education Systems group (IES) promotes the development of young people who will have the capacity to contribute proactively to the ongoing work towards a better world. Through dynamic programmes, IES will strive to develop leaders for the future who are collaborative, communicative, enquiring, respectful and creative individuals with a passion for lifelong learning.


Through the development of projects, activities, games, portfolios and learning strategies that help our students develop interpersonal skills of communication and group work, such as constructive dialogue, active listening and negotiation, appreciation of diversity, personal responsibility, commitment and supportive relationships.

Multilingual Approach

We prepare our students for the DELE (Spanish) and Cambridge (English) international exams. Multilingualism provides educational, cognitive and sociocultural benefits for those students who achieve fluency in more than one language, which will allow them to interact with people from other countries and the possibility of living, studying or working abroad.


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.
