They say that “To sustain longevity, you have to evolve.”, and what better example than InSPE. In 2014, The International School for Primary Education is celebrating two decades of existence, in which it has constantly evolved, permanently changing in the process the educational landscape of Romania.
The beginnings of InSPE can be traced to 1994, when a non-profit organisation was set up by a group of parents, aiming to to provide quality education in English for children of the expatriate community in Bucharest. They called it the International Nursery School, and the subsequent, instant success meant it would soon require new premises. The following year, the school moved to the ‘French Village’, enjoying a perfect decade and a growing status among the elite educational institutions in Bucharest. By 2004, the number of children on the waiting list and parental requests to provide education up to the age of 11, signalled a new chapter in the history of the establishment: relocation in a purpose built school and rebranding. On September 1st 2009, the school changed its name to InSPE to convey its status as a Nursery and Primary School.
