Welcome to ISD - where no fitting in is required!

We're proud to say that at ISD, there is no 'one size fits all'. We welcome students with different interests, talents, and abilities into our school, and support each of them to become the very best version of themselves they can be.

Flexibility is therefore a hallmark of learning at ISD: our learning environments are adaptable and dynamic; our interdisciplinary units allow students to develop creative solutions outside the bounds of a single subject; our elective courses provide opportunities for students to forge their own path; and our Additional Learning Opportunities (ALOs) allow students the freedom to discover connections between their passions and their talents.

Crucial to this flexibility, is our teaching staff. Currently representing over 30 nationalities, they bring an abundance of knowledge, experience, and diversity to our classrooms. Working collaboratively, they provide a challenging and supportive environment for all students.

Families are another key partner in the learning journey. At ISD, parents enjoy ample opportunity to participate in all aspects of school life. We believe such broad community engagement exposes our students to more varied learning opportunities, and is an important part of what makes learning at our school rich and authentic.

In fact, the idea of the "ISD family" is a defining feature of the ISD culture. Newcomers are warmly welcomed, and carefully supported to integrate quickly into the school community. For many, ISD quickly becomes a home away from home, where lifelong friendships are forged.

This, in a nutshell, is ISD: a school committed to providing an education that is relevant, today and tomorrow; an education that sees our students flourish and inspires them to make a positive difference in their world.
