5 reasons to be at ISL!

If ISL could speak, I wonder at the stories it could tell :)

Here is my story on why you should be at ISL...
ISL is one of the oldest international schools in Africa. Established in 1963, this school has been through decades of changes and emerged a winner each time.  We have students from over 47 nationalities and teachers from over 12!

ISL is an IB world school and has run the IB Primary Years Program (IBPYP) since gaining authorisation in 2007. Prior to this we were a candidate school for four years. We are also accredited by Council of International Schools ( CIS) and New England Association of Schools ( NEASC). The program offered ( IBPYP)  is recognised across the globe and is truly international in  nature. We take in children from as young as two years old!

The IBPYP prepares children for life, is based on concepts, is meaningful, authentic and respects student Voice, Choice and Ownership. The program is annually reviewed by our very professional teachers with the intentions of making it better. Having had Coffee mornings with parents during the last week, several times I heard parents speak of the confidence that students gain at their time here and how they love being at school!

ISL is an inclusive school and we make our best efforts to support every student we offer a place to. Our Student Support Services include Learning Support (LS), English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and Counseling. Emphasis on Personal, Social, Health and Emotional (PSHE) well being is laid through the PSHE program at school.

The ISL community works towards making the school a better place. Parents have been showing more interest each year in what happens at school either through participation in school workshops, being a member of a committee, becoming a Classroom parent representative (CPR), organising events at school, participating in school sports days and many others. We have a great community and we work together to understand each other!
