The EAS is a private co-educational day-school founded in 2011 by the European Azerbaijan society (TEAS), a UK registered Pan-European organisation with representative offices in Azerbaijan, Belgium, France, Germany and the United Kingdom. The school is authorized by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan but differs significantly from government schools in offering special international programs for which it is fully authorized. These include the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP), Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and the IB Diploma Program. The school has grown from the original 95 students in 2012 to our current population of over 780 and includes an Early Years Program (ages 4 and 5 years) in addition to its 1-11 grade program. The school is also a member of the Council of International School (CIS) network.
