Our enthusiastic staff welcome young learners from the ages of 3-5 to develop their coordination, creativity, and expressive skills, all while having a lot of fun!

In the Primary Years Programme (PYP),  students take charge of their own learning. Through engaging Units of Inquiry, students discover the world around them.

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) supports students as they experience profound transformative change in their personal lives, and expand the depth and breadth of their understandings.

The IB Diploma Programme at TOIS encourages students to discover, connect and achieve their goals in a broad array of subject areas, to be successful at universities around the world.

TOIS is your home in Ostrava

Our community is made up of students and staff from over 35 countries.
No matter where you are from, what language you speak, you can be who you are.


Learning is a process of discovery. Inspiring students to be interested in the world around them and the world within themselves, is our daily effort.


Inquiry-based learning leads young people to think about big ideas, to ask questions, and think critically and reflectively. Students make meaningful connections through authentic learning, and at the same time, meet specific curricular standards.


Students learn and reflect in real-world contexts, set challenging goals, and surprise themselves with what they can accomplish.


The faculty and staff of The Ostrava International School are made up of professionals from around the world devoted to inquiry-based teaching and learning.

What They Say

I wish I could have gone to a school like this when I was growing up. My daughter runs to school in the morning and doesn't want to come home in the afternoon. She has fun, and she brings her learning home to me.

Once you teach the IB PYP, you never want to go back to teaching the old way again. The students are genuinely inspired to take control of their learning, and we have a lot of fun on the journey together!

— TOIS PYP Teacher

It is hard for me to believe sometimes how energetically my son is pursuing his school work. He is always asking questions at the dinner table, and relating what he learned that day.

The DP Programme set my daughter on the right track to university. It was extremely challenging, but the teaching staff was absolutely focused on helping her to get to where she wanted to go.
