ISL is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School
We offer the Primary Years, Middle Years, and Diploma Programmes for children aged 3-18. We are known for our academic excellence and rigorous teaching which encourage children to achieve the highest standards. But good grades aren’t enough to succeed in a complex, changing world. That’s why we develop creative and independent children who can solve problems and adapt.
An ISL education
The world is increasingly interconnected. Many of today’s challenges require clear thinking, dialogue, and cooperation. ISL prepares children for the complexities and uncertainties of our multicultural, interdependent world so that they can contribute productively.
An ISL education provides young people with:
- a rigorous intellectual base so they can think critically
- opportunities for innovation and independent problem-solving
- the ability to effectively cooperate across cultural boundaries
- a genuine sense of caring for the well-being of all community members
- confidence and the courage to be themselves
“We think there is no limit to a child’s potential and we help every student explore theirs, so they have the best possible chance of leading a successful, fulfilling life. ”Frazer Cairns, School Director
ISL is an IB World School, and we therefore offer the International Baccalaureate Programmes, the PYP, MYP and DP.
Teaching, learning, and innovation
We’re led by evidence and experience. We are always trying out new ways and building on what works. By constantly improving, we create richer experiences for students. It helps us attract and retain the very best teachers.
