In our recent reaccreditation, the visiting MSA team commended ISO on its strong sense of community and school spirit. This strength is a result of deliberate planning and action performed by teachers, students and parents. Community adds valuable context to the venture that is education and through it we cultivate character and an understanding of what it means to be a contributing citizen.

In concrete terms, this means whenever possible, ISO buys locally thus supporting associations (which help widows, for example) and small Burkinabé family businesses.
