Caring and challenging

An overseas posting can prove to be a stressful experience for children and their families.

Mindful of this, ISD employs a very high number of student support staff. They are specialized in helping and guiding students. 

Entry into university is a difficult process made even more so by the fact that international students will be seeking entry into one or more of a large number of possible university systems. College guidance resources need to be more extensive than those you would find in a national school.

Some support staff work within the classroom structure (like English as an Additional Language teachers) and others are welcoming students on and individual basis (like counsellors and learning development specialists).

ISD employs full-time college guidance counsellors for European, American, UK, Canadian and Australian universities. In addition, ISD has experienced guidance personnel to assist students with applications to German and Japanese universities.
