About Us

Changing schools, countries, continents or cultures is never an easy task for a student. At ISS International School, academic rigour is enhanced by our purposeful and planned focus on student well-being. In keeping with our inclusive philosophy, we conciously maintain small class sizes to ensure high levels of engagement to better support student success. 

Our unique hilltop campus, set in a nature reserve, is a safe haven for our diverse community. This tranquil environment is optimal for learning and encourages creativity, high level thinking, and innovation. Additionally, there are bountiful opportunities to engage in authentic biological and environmental studies.
