Vision and Mission
MTK is an international centre of excellence within an Azerbaijani context.
We offer a wide variety of studies designed to foster not only intellectual growth but also individual creativity, collaboration skills, physical health and social and emotional well-being.
Core to the school’s ethos is the aspiration for all MTK learners to become authentically bilingual, meaning that they achieve not only fluency but full academic proficiency in both English and their mother-tongue.
Our school provides an education that prepares students to thrive in the exciting but turbulent world of today in which it is difficult to predict the careers and challenges of the future.
With this in mind, we have designed a curriculum that will equip our graduates with transferrable 21st century skills, providing them with a high level of flexibility in their choice of university and future career.
Our aim is to ensure that all students are happy and fulfilled during their time with us, and for them to carry forward their positive qualities and exceptional skills as they embark on their further studies and careers.
The Modern Educational Complex named in Honour of Heydar Aliyev is an international centre of excellence within an Azerbaijani context, delivering an education that will fully prepare students to thrive
It is very difficult to predict the jobs and skills that will be most in-demand when today's primary school children reach adulthood.
Focusing solely on academic achievement is no longer a guarantee of success to meet the demands of a fast-changing world.
As educational researcher Karl Fisch explains:
“We are currently preparing students for jobs that don't yet exist... using technologies that haven't yet been invented ... in order to solve problems we don't even know are problems yet.”
We provide a wide variety of learning experiences designed to foster intellectual growth, physical and emotional health, creativity and an empathetic spirit.
With the above in mind, we aim to nurture the following values in our students:
Tenacity – willpower and perseverance
Tolerance – an understanding and acceptance of our differences and common humanity
Multiculturalism - adherence to national as well as international values; a penchant for modernity
Creativity – a non-standard approach to complex 21st century challenges
Honesty – recognition of reality, regardless of the weight of responsibility
Scholarship – mastery of applied knowledge including innovation and digital literacy
Excellence – commitment to excelling in all endeavours
Enthusiasm – initiative born out of a sincere love of learning and a commitment to fulfilling potential
Leadership – initiative, participation, discussion, individual and social responsibility, discipline, effectiveness
