School Objectives

World Academy of Tirana (WAT) provides an international education for students from diverse cultural backgrounds. The school's programs of study and activities foster the cognitive, aesthetic, physical, social and emotional growth of the whole child, helping each child to reach his or her greatest potential in a stimulating and caring environment. Children are encouraged to develop a sense of identity, self-esteem and independence.

The transdisciplinary curriculum is designed to maintain high standards of academic learning while allowing children to make meaningful connections across subject areas using an inquiry-based approach. Classroom activities provide opportunities for cooperative and experiential learning which emphasizes process oriented skills and the communicative importance of language.

Children are taught to respect others, their natural environment, and to develop an awareness of global issues through school and community service activities. Cooperation among parents, staff, students and the community is actively encouraged. Students will leave WAT with an appreciation of different cultures and the tools to become life-long learners.
