The International Virtual School is an extension education platform created due to the success achieved by The Mountain Cambridge School, which has been dedicated to educating children using whole brain / thinking teaching tools since 1995. It became an accredited Cambridge School in 2010 and our phenomenal achievements can be viewed at www.themcs.co.za
The need to provide an online platform, giving families who might otherwise not have access to a solid, reliable curriculum (with bench-marking on a worldwide scale) resulted in the establishment of the IV School. This obviously also benefits home-schoolers who insist on a quality curriculum, tutor support and guidance. Our tutors blended learning approach ensures the learner is supported individually and each subject has an dedicated teacher for specialist assistance.
Our qualified teachers guide and assist learners throughout their Cambridge Journey. Dedicated tutors, regular assessments and communication ensures parents’ peace of mind.
We are proud to be part of the world’s largest international
community of schools.
