The IB Diploma Programme at Park Lane – How Are We Doing?

In 2023-24, Park Lane’s graduating Class of 2025 becomes the school’s sixth cohort of Year 12 students to begin the two-year IB Diploma Programme, moving up the hill from the Klárov branch to join our new Year 13 students at our bespoke IB Diploma centre in Úvoz street.

At Park Lane International School, all students advancing into Year 12 take on the challenges of the full IB Diploma Programme with no exceptions or alternative academic pathways – thus, by the time of their graduation in June 2025, this year’s IB newcomers will join more than 220 students to have completed the IBDP journey at Park Lane.

Please see our Principal’s full article here.

What Students & Parents Say

Hey, I’m Natalie and I graduated from Park Lane in 2021. One of the things I learned throughout my studies is that life doesn’t always go as planned, but you can surely meet it halfway. As a year group we were put into several unexpected situations, but always encouraged to get back on our feet, no matter the setback. I can thank Park Lane for making us feel like the future really is in our hands. I made several unforgettable memories, lifelong relationships and gained valuable knowledge. Ultimately, I aspire to be as loving and wise as our teachers, dedicated and admirable as my classmates and positive as the atmosphere at Park Lane. I am thankful for everyone that made my journey through high school this pleasant and I look forward to what the future holds.

Teacher of Mathematics

Samuel Fitzgerald

I have spent the past six years teaching middle years students in the Boston, Massachusetts area while simultaneously earning my master’s degree in middle and secondary mathematics education.  Prior to my experience in the USA, I spent time teaching English in both Prague and Dobříš, as well.   As a maths teacher, I aim to create classroom environments and lesson structures that encourage active exploration rather than passive reception of knowledge.  When students begin from a simple, universally accessible premise, and gradually encounter thin slices of increasing complexity and nuance over the course of a task, they are able to move fluidly towards mastery of seemingly difficult maths content in an efficient and enjoyable fashion.  Movement, collaboration, and experimentation are regular features of my instruction. In addition to my personal excitement for joining Park Lane, my wife, Asya, and I are also very happy to resume living in the Czech Republic after several years away.  Outside of the classroom you may find me making jump shots on the basketball court, reading books and playing games in the cafe, solving puzzles in an escape room, “urban hiking” throughout Prague, or brewing kombucha back in our apartment.

Originally from New Zealand, my first EAL teaching experience was teaching refugees from Cambodia. My interest in teaching EAL originated from that time. After graduating from university I went to teach English in Japan on the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program. Some years later I arrived in the Czech…
