Education at Avenor College is founded on a skill-based curriculum, where teaching and assessment by means of project based learning (PBL) create real opportunities of progress.
Primary classes are divided into Lower Primary (Grades Pregătitoare – 2) and Upper Primary (Grades 3 and 4), with teachers specialised in children’s learning needs.

HOURS OF PBL/WEEK
In primary 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.
Drama, Science, Ant and PSHE (personal, social and health education) classes are examples of the special attention given to the value of individual potential, beyond that of age.
PBL is the acronym for Project-Based Learning, a teaching and learning program that involves teamwork and connections between the disciplines studied. In the Middle School, students have 1-2 hours of PBL per week in Romanian and / or English in which they work on group projects related to school top…

Each day, each form tutor dedicates 20 minutes to teaching students how to learn based on an action plan established in the meetings of each department. This plan is based on the needs of children and aims to train and develop study skills and a reflective attitude towards learning.
Avenor College clubs are designed to support and develop the individual interests and aspirations of each student and to meet the students’ personal development needs.
For Grades 5 to 8, clubs are provided for an intensive and thorough study that will help students nurture talents, skills, and passions at a level that will help them in choosing their profession and in personal development, providing the basis for a complete and specialised solid culture.

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 with a psychologist in which, through discussions and thematic projects, they learn to understand each other and to understand those around them better.
These meetings attended by children from different grades, grouped by age, point out the key aspects of school life, through experiential learning activities during PBL (Project based Learning) activities.
Learning outside of the classroom
Avenor College students participate in many activities (both inside and outside the school) that bring them into contact with the real world, teaching them to feel part of a community in which to behave proactively and responsibly.
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.
Students of honour
It is a distinction that is awarded once a year, based on the vote of all teachers and form tutors, following clear criteria. Students of honour demonstrate very good academic and extracurricular results, are role models, have a proactive attitude towards learning, actively participate in school eve…
