Founder's speech

Although my husband and I were veterinary doctors by profession, we had a passion for education, which pushed us to open a reference complex:
RUSSIAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL – GALAXY operational since September 2016, which goes from kindergarten to college in two sections (french-speaking and english-speaking). 

The pedagogic projects are part of our educational methods because the latter allow learners to express themselves in research, creativity and manipulation as in the Montessori educational method. It is such a gift for us to serve the educational community and enable learners to acquire the right skills. What an opportunity we have, as educators, to collaborate with parents to train the young men and women who will be the leaders of tomorrow. Managing this task well is our priority.

The TCHUISSANG couple works hard to perfect their mission.
At RIS-GALAXY, we advocate on:
QUEST, DISCOVERY AND MODERNITY, in accordance with the mission of the IB, we encourage learners throughout their lives to make the world a peaceful place. Learners will learn to advocate for themselves while developing an appreciation for lifelong learning, organizational skills, and personal priorities that lead to success. Our teachers know that each child is a unique Galaxy capable of doing anything.” 

Academically speaking, we encourage extracurricular activities which is why we have clubs run by professionals. Student activities are thriving and we continue to find new and exciting ways to engage our young students while being committed to developing their character.

“Best school for better world”

The Russian International School “Galaxy” is a lay private nursery, primary and secondary school with a complete cycle in two sections:
Anglophone and Francophone.

It is located in Makepe, towards the Saint Monique Catholic Church and operates in a one-shift system of education.

We believe that every child is a Galaxy, unique and capable of everything. Our role as teachers is to see the child’s strengths and weaknesses and guide them gently through the process of education, making learning interesting and meaningful for the child.

We value uniqueness of every child.

We motivate them to be independent and responsible learners.

We teach them to love and care for each other and our planet.

We believe, that discovering the world and learning about Russian culture and traditions will make a great impact on their development, helping them to grow into inquirers, life-time learners, adults, who can look at daily situations from different perspectives.

Russian International Secondary School «Galaxy» is an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School.

Every child is a galaxy

What makes us different?
