Our teaching strategy

Russian International School “Galaxy” consists of an Early Years Section, which is perfectly bilingual, and primary and secondary school (Anglophone and Francophone sections), and follows Cameroonian curriculum and standards with elements of internationnal baccalaureate program. We believe that traditional subjects and skills are acquired more effectively within the context, during the exploration of the content that is relevant to the students. Our school aims to promote a healthy life-style by teaching kids make right choices and having a variety of sport activities and events throughout the academic year.

Our purpose is to create life-long learners for the world by instilling in them a sense of inquiry, risk-taking, and exploration to be students who will love to learn with intense motivation.

We strive to develop students with a global mindset, giving them the skills needed to confidently become productive global citizens. We provide a comprehensive, inclusive and stimulating learning environment in tune with humanity and our contemporary world.


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 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.



Recognising that actively building respectful and sustainable relationships with other human beings and with our planet builds strong social capital, which in turn, supports our wellbeing. In doing so we acknowledge our shared cultures and histories.


Encouraging behaviours which encom,pass notions of innovation, originality, liberation and generative problem-solving in all that we do.


Celebration of persistent learning at a high level and the pursuit of excellence. Understanding the importance of thinking routines, self-regulation and reflection.


Developing the capacity to question without fear. Understanding that ‘success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.’
