The first school in Moldova has obtained the status of “Cambridge School”
Heritage International School has become Moldova’s first school to receive the “Cambridge School” status from Cambridge Assessment International Education, which brings valuable opportunities to the children in Moldova who are interested in an international academic pathway.
Now Heritage not only teaches learners in line with the Cambridge curriculum, but also becomes an assessment center, where learners can take the official tests and get their Cambridge qualifications, which open doors to the world’s best universities in the US, the UK, Australia, Canada and beyond.
