About International School of Herzen University (ISHU)
International School of Herzen University (ISHU) offers an international education that is holistic, inquiry-based, and offers each student an individualized learning path. Within ISHU’s multicultural educational environment, students are encouraged to fulfil their academic, creative, and social potential, on the road to becoming life-long learners.
An ISHU education fosters students who are confident and effective communicators, able to appreciate different perspectives and treat others with empathy and respect. ISHU cultivates a growth mind-set amongst students and staff. Problem solving, flexibility, creativity and innovation combine to produce a school community of responsible and productive global citizens able to adapt to a variety of events and circumstances.
At ISHU we empower our students to become positive change-makers in our diverse and ever-changing world.
This is my first year working at ISHU, but I'm very impressed. The teaching staff really cares about each student. The administration and teachers use the International Baccalaureate system to learn and use the most innovative and impressive teaching methods. And the school is able to meet any student wherever they are - they can learn entirely in English, or in Russian, or both. They can take classes individually, or with the rest of their class (never more than 5-7 students). And unlike many international schools - your child has a chance to meet and interact with locals, gaining immensely from engagement with Russians and Russian culture.
