Application Process

Choosing a school is not an easy task. You are searching for the very best, and a large part of your child’s future is resting on your decision.

While we hope that our website and materials are informative, we recognise that there is no substitute for a campus visit. A tour of our campus allows the opportunity to truly sample the joy of our students’ experience, the friendliness of our community, and the warmth of our school’s atmosphere.

We warmly invite prospective parents, guardians and applicants to visit our school. Our tours are scheduled on an individual basis, and include information about the school and the application process. We strongly encourage all prospective parents to call us for an appointment to meet with us and tour the school.

When considering applicants, we take into account factors which include personal and social development, educational history and milestones, academic profile and English language proficiency to determine if applicants will benefit from their learning experience at ISS International School.

We accept applications throughout the year and practise rolling enrolment to accommodate expatriate families who relocate at various times. Applications for the current year are still open, subject to space availability. We look forward to hearing from you.

The Application Process

Prospective students and parents are invited to submit an Initial Inquiry Form if they are contacting the school for the first time. Alternatively, you may wish to contact the Admissions Department via email at:

Information provided in the Initial Inquiry Form allows one of our admissions representatives to get back to applicants with the most relevant information and subsequently arrange for a school visit.
