INTERNATIONAL SECONDARY SCHOOL
Message from the Head of School-ISK
I want to offer a warm welcome to parents and students to our prestigious school - ISK.
As the Headteacher I feel very privileged to work every day with such talented students and staff. I have worked in education for over twenty six years and I strongly believe that teaching is one of the most important professions in the world. We shape and nurture our future generations to become the entrepreneurs and leaders of tomorrow. For our students every school day at ISK should be filled with challenge, inspiration, creativity and aspiration.
Our students come from over eighty different countries and of course speak many different languages, but they are brought together by being part of the ISK community.
Since the start of ISK in 1975 the school has evolved through many changes, challenges and opportunities. Today we are an outward looking, proactive school embracing the rapid and diverse changes in teaching and learning. We will work to ensure that our young people are prepared for their futures, by providing the best education and opportunities to become confident, articulate and creative members of the global community.
We offer the British Curriculum throughout from Grade 6 to Grade 12. Our wide range of option choices at Grade 9 and 10 offer our students bespoke pathways to ensure that their educational needs are met and their future aspirations are supported. Additionally we are unique in offering two pathways in Grades 11 and 12, both the A-Level pathway and the International Baccalaureate Pathway. Many of our students leave us to study in prestigious universities both here in the UAE and across the world.
Our school is where ambition becomes success and dreams become reality.
Please come and join us on a tour around our beautiful campus - we are always here to welcome you!
