Welcome to ISR
It’s cool to be good! “It is cool to excel summarizes the ethos of ISR. Whether it is in academia, sports, or music, giving your best, while still being humble is something we try to instil in every student” Eileen Lyons, School Director
ISR prides itself on preparing the students for their future path. Three full time staff members counsel students on career options and corresponding course selections. Parents are also deeply involved in this process. ISR strongly believes in internships as one of the best ways for students to get a real feel for career options.
Students learn organizational and leadership skills as part of their experience in the “Student Life Organization”. SLO® provides a platform that empowers roughly 100 students with leadership, teambuilding, and organizational skills.
55% of last year’s graduating class 2018 started at ISR in Kindergarten, hence, there is tremendous importance of instilling values that are essential for life at an early age. The leadership team deeply believes in respecting the performance of others, understanding and respecting different cultures, honesty, integrity, responsibility, sincerity, and the value of logical thinking mixed with a touch of “gut feel”- trusting your instincts.
Lastly, ISR offers state of the art infrastructure. Several well equipped science labs, IT-Labs with access to a 3D printer and Virtual Reality goggles as well as a fitness center are all available to students. ISR is a five star service educational provider and we expect our students to work hard, engage, and simply do their best.
