Our Vision

ISC is a constructivist, non-profit international school that is constantly redefining learning. At ISC, we incorporate the latest research and believe that the essential skills for our students’ futures are communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, character, and citizenship. This is our vision of “Teaching for the Future”.

International Mindedness

We are living in an increasingly interdependent, globalized and connected world. As a result, we understand that we are teaching for a future where we will interact with a variety of people, recognizing that we are all different. As global citizens we are called upon to learn about and improve our world together. It is our collective responsibility to respect all cultures, languages, and backgrounds. International mindedness is embedded in everything we do.

ISC Human Rights Policy

We understand that human rights are fundamental to the well-being and dignity of every person. They provide a framework for individuals to live freely, without fear of persecution or discrimination. Human rights also empower individuals to participate in their societies and advocate for their own rights and those of others. Ensuring human rights is crucial for promoting social justice, and equality.

How is it to work at ISC?

We understand that, as we move into more complex contexts in society, we can succeed if everyone shares the same principles and a common language about respect and citzenship.
