International School of Athens (ISA) is one of only two International Schools in South East Europe & the only International School in Greece that is an IB Continuum World School.
We are very pleased and proud to announce that following our recent MYP (Middle Years Programme) authorization from the IB Organization, ISA is now the only international school in Greece to be an IB Continuum World School offering the three IB programmes, namely: PYP (Primary Years Programme), MYP (Middle Years Programme) and IB Diploma, covering Kindergarten to grade 12.
The International School of Athens is an academic community comprised of students, faculty, and parents united in a philosophy which is dedicated to fostering in all of its students a love of learning, self-discipline and self-knowledge. The community upholds the belief that what a school chooses to teach is reflected in its regard for its human relationships, in its appreciation of cultural diversity and the manner in which it interacts with all of its members. The community is proud of its “sense of family” and the friendships and camaraderie that it inspires.
The curriculum is broad-based and flexible. A low faculty student ratio caters to the individual needs of the student and contributes to a learning environment, which stimulates personal, intellectual, artistic, social, and physical development. The close interaction of all members of the ISA community effectively encourages the students to achieve high personal standards of academic success, maximizes each student’s potential and contributes to his or her total educational experience.
Furthermore, I.S.A. adheres to the IBO philosophy, endeavouring to develop the individual talents of young people and teach them to relate the experience of the classroom to the realities of the world outside. Beyond intellectual rigour and high academic standards, strong emphasis is placed on the ideas of international understanding and responsible citizenship, to enable I.S.A. students to become critical and compassionate thinkers, lifelong learners and informed participants in local and world affairs, conscious of the shared humanity that binds all people together while respecting the variety of cultures and attitudes that makes for the richness of life.
