Empowering Students Through Quality Education, Cultural Exploration, and Active Living

Mag. Mila Alexandrov

Academic Director and Founder

As a dynamic and energetic teaching professional with a genuine interest in student’s cognitive and social growth, I actively engage in diverse areas of education, including curriculum and pastoral development, monitoring student progression, and contributing keenly to extracurricular activities.

My Bachelor's degree in education and Master’s degree in teaching Biology and Chemistry have supported my 20 years of experience teaching Biology, ESS  and General Science at the Secondary level. Over the last 25 years, I have taught both the IBDP and MYP at International Schools in Malta, the Bahamas, the Netherlands, and Austria.

With broad international experience in working with students and teachers, I have encouraged them to reach their full potential. I've served as the Head of a Science Department, Personal Project, and Extended Essay supervisor, creating and updating assessment tools for all levels in alignment with school goals. My Certificate in International Leadership, covering Curriculum Leadership in the International School, The Effective Principal from theory to practice, Creating and Administrating an Effective School, Instructional Supervision and Evaluation, Leadership, and Group Dynamics, has further increased my desire to keep students enthusiastic and interested in learning. Additionally, I am an IB educator, have worked at Stanford University IBDP  Courses, and have extensive experience working with ESL and students with special needs.
