LINES OF STUDY
In middle school classes, the requirements of the Romanian National Curriculum – standards, reference objectives and competences -, as well as learning contents and evaluation forms are followed. Equally, teachers are prepared to use teaching methods and teaching principles specific to international education to tailor the resources, contents and methods of teaching / assessment to the individual learning needs of students according to Cambridge’s curriculum and educational resources.
Approaching learning from the Cambridge perspective helps students to communicate efficiently and convincingly, develop critical and creative thinking skills, as well as the capacity to apply information from various communication sources/environments to concrete, authentic situations.

We want our students to be happy children and to become well-balanced future adults, able to develop beautiful relationships with those around them, to empathise and be receptive to the environment in which they live. In addition to curricular activities, these children need to invent, take risks, make mistakes, play together and enjoy life. They need personal development. They need personal development.
Avenor College’s vision is inspired by Howard Gardner’s theory of “multiple intelligences”, according to which the school must develop and motivate students’ individual values through academic, sports and artistic programmes supported by personal, emotional, and social factors.
Every week, Avenor College students have a personal development class in which, through discussions and thematic projects, they learn to understand each other and to understand those around them.
These meetings attended by children from different grades, grouped by age, point out the key aspects of school life, through experiential learning activities. These meetings are organised on different topics and they are an excellent peer-to-peer learning opportunity. Also, in Assembly, special dist…

Avenor College Assessment System.
This system is one that encourages personal development. Regardless of the activities in which they participate (curricular or co-curricular), children are always evaluated taking into account both the “Attainment” (results) and the effort and progress for each subject.
“House points” system
Children from the entire school are divided into four houses and accumulate points for joint activities and projects, school events or volunteer activities. Belonging to houses helps them to develop relationships with older or younger students and to join forces in common goals.
It is the way in which students can express their point of view (through representatives elected by vote in each class) on how they think school activities should be conducted, but also an opportunity to develop their leadership skills.
