IB World School > A School with experience

A School with experience

ISD was founded in 1968 and has over 40 years of experience with expatriate students and their families.

ISD was one of the first schools to be authorised for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

It is now an IB World School with the same IB philosophy throughout the school and with programmes for grades 6 to 10 (the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme) and for Reception to grade 5 (the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme). The International Baccalaureate (IB) curricula are transportable and students can often join other IB schools without any difficulty.

Classes are small and have an average of 16 to 18 students.

Well-qualified international teachers coming from 21 different countries and cultures are role-models by forming interdisciplinary teams.

To non-native students whose English is not strong enough to fully participate in class, ISD gives strong English as an Additional Language support.  A Mother Tongue programme gives students the opportunity to continue to improve their mother tongue.

A Mentoring Programme gives students and adults the opportunity to share interests, to gain confidence and to shine.

A Parent Volunteer Centre welcomes parent initiatives that support the learning of the entire ISD community and the mission of the school.
