My two boys came to ISO in August 2014 with very limited English. With the assistance of the experienced teachers, I am pleased to see my boys’ progress in academic performance. They’ve also learned to build their self-confidence and to observe the world with curiosity and positive thinking through various activities organized by the school and Parent Teacher Association. I am convinced that ISO is the best choice for my kids.

We’ve had children at the ISO since 2007 and we are happy with the results. We chose this school for our kids because of the environment, which is more suitable for learning when the whole school community knows each other making this school really friendly. The international side of the school with the big diversity of countries make our children experience the different cultures, and view the world from different perspectives instead of seeing it in one way. This will help to prepare them to be citizens of the world.
Antoine and Rackel Azar, parents of ISO students in Grades 7 and 10 (Lebanon)
When we moved to Ouagadougou, ISO was the obvious choice for us, as it is close to our house in Zone du Bois and our children are native English speakers. We also felt that the American/international, child-oriented, 'learn to learn' curriculum would suit the needs of our two boys best. We since learnt that the ISO is a very welcoming and caring community, where pupils and parents find their meeting point. The school has been helpful and accommodating to extracurricular needs like speech therapy. The after school activities offer an attractive and convenient opportunity for the children to learn and practice a sport, art or skill under the supervision of the school community. We feel happy and confident to leave our children in the ISO compound as safety and security, in the widest sense, have always been a high priority of ISO. We decided to sign up our youngest child, who had been doing maternelle/nursery school at a local French school, for PRE-K in ISO for all these reasons, as well as the convenience to have our boys at the same school - with synchronized rosters.
