What makes us different ?

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence

To understand and manage emotions, our students are immersed in social-emotional learning programs and curricula throughout their studies. Social-emotional learning enhances one’s self-awareness, self-management, decision-making and resilience.

Low student teacher ratio

Low Student – Teacher Ratio

Verita classes have an impressively low student-teacher ratio of 1:9. Small class size and our inspiring and highly qualified teaching faculty ensure that students get independent attention and tailor-made differentiated support.

Service learning projects

Service Learning Projects

Verita students must participate in meaningful community service which exposes them to active engagement within communities or environments in need. Using curriculum objectives and innovative approaches our students work on real-world problems.

Inquiry based learning

Inquiry-Based Learning

A teaching approach that builds on the idea that educators and students both share responsibility for learning. Students’ questions, ideas and observations are at the centre of the learning experience. Inquiry methodologies require students to engage in evidence-based reasoning, learning by doing and creative problem-solving.

Well-being

Well-Being

Verita actively builds internal programs that promote student and staff wellbeing. We ensure a space where students feel physically and emotionally safe with a caring adult looking after the progress and acting as an advocate for each child. Most importantly, we ensure that kindness is the centre of everything we do.

student agency

Student Agency

It boils down to creating skills in students where they build their own self-directed learning abilities and strategies which allow them to develop a higher degree of autonomy and self-mastery. Student agency is ‘The ability of students to act independently within a given environment and assume an amount of control and empowerment”

We believe that classrooms of collaborators can change the world

Verita ensures that all students meet rigorous curriculum objectives and standards while in parallel providing exciting learning opportunities. Units of learning, real-life case studies, projects, fieldwork, and service-learning inspire students to think and work as professionals do, contributing high-quality work that is presented to audiences beyond the classroom.

We believe that through enquiry, active learning, and the development of emotional intelligence in a safe environment, all students are capable of mastery of knowledge, skills and understanding.

The school began in 1982, but that dream has evolved.

With each new campus, the curriculum refined and optimized, and the reputation strengthened, today, Verita is recognized for preparing students with the content knowledge, critical thinking, emotional intelligence and creative problem-solving skills needed to be successful in an increasingly complex world.

Verita co-founders wanted to see what happened when international best practices, were infused with the creativity and spirit that defines British education. Four campuses and over a thousand students later, Verita International School has made its mark in Romania and continues to develop itself as an international school that pushes the limits of traditional education.

Road Map

 Three Stages, One School

At Verita International School, students move seamlessly through three stages from Early Years to a Secondary School diploma. Many parents and students have aspirations of admissions to overseas universities, so we have selected curriculums with preuniversity international programmes that are widely recognised globally.

Our well-rounded, globally benchmarked curriculum is designed to inspire mastery and excellence. By challenging and equipping students with deep knowledge, skills, and understanding we’re helping them become more confident in their intellectual abilities. Ultimately, the VIS course of study prepares students to be participants, not spectators, in the dynamic, exciting, and unpredictable world of the 21st century.

Testimonials

Our three kids have been attending Verita for the last three years, and they are all very happy about their experiences. The teachers and administration staff are excellent. Everybody is always very willing to help and to accommodate every request. They learn more than just academics in this school, they learn how to become real citizens of the world and that is a real plus compared to any other school.

– Jeremie

VERITA PARENT

We are extremely pleased with all aspects of their educational and emotional development. Verita teachers and administrators pay tremendous attention to detail. The teaching staff is amazing and this reflects itself in the overall education process. Our girls have blossomed at Verita. We definitely give Verita five stars and recommend the school to anyone interested to further their child”s education. Congratulations all.

– Anda and Phil

VERITA PARENT

Our son has been attending Verita for three years now and just loves it. Imagine that, a thirteen-year-old teenager who looks forward to going to school? Why? I think it’s about the teachers and the structure of the study. Teachers are confident younger leaders who encourage him to think and contribute to classroom discussions. Projects (which are frequent) encourage a point of view and a robust defense of that point of view with extra credit for creativity in problem-solving.
