The International School of Ulaanbaatar (ISU) is an IB World school providing the Primary Years’ Programme, the Middle Years’ Programme and the Diploma Programme to a diverse community of more than 30 nationalities. These programmes challenge children to question the world around them, to listen and deliberate on the information they are presented with, and to reflect on their own methods of analysis and situational biases. Students of these programmes become more rigorous in their thinking, more open-minded about the many possible perspectives one might have on issues and subject areas and more connected to the world through the topics of their learning.
We are committed to meeting the needs of the whole child, which means recognizing and speaking to their unique learning styles and their interests – providing them with distinct opportunities to connect with their studies, their classmates and the broader world around them.
One critical aspect of this is our co-curricular activities (CCAs) programme. This programme is designed to offer an array of events and activities which nurture the strengths and passions of your child and further develop areas of inexperience and unfamiliarity. A well-rounded CCA programme is a very important part of a balanced education.
Effective education involves a partnership and an alignment between the school and the home. To that end we welcome parental involvement in school life. We work hard to ensure that our channels of communication convey what the school and the parents most want to know about a child’s learning and well-being. Parents also serve on our Board of Trustees—a crucial entity which stewards the school in the realization of its mission and vision. And we have a warm and committed Parent Teacher Group (PTG) which we encourage all parents to join. It provides an introduction for newly-arrived families, and serves as an ongoing bridge between the goals of the school and its community.

I worked there for a year at this school. The facilities are good and the building is clean and colorful. Individual attention is given to all the students and personalised coaching / academic help after school hours is visible. Teachers are well qualified and are always supportive. ISU has teachers from various countries and so you get to see experience different cultures first hand. I see most of the students are very happy attending this school and I heard good feedback from the parents. I personally liked the Mongolian staff and students. They are very respectful, caring and humble. There are also a number of co curricular activities for students and I personally liked the environment and the school. Definitely it is being run by an efficient, able , ethical visionary Mr.Bill.
Great facilities and children have fun and do learn about soft skills. However don't expect them to learn much and to be able to easily re-integrate the school system when you go back to your home country. Teaching standards are variable and entirely dependent on the individual teachers with no tangible way to keep them to account to go through a set curriculum. For example, my son had an American teacher for Grade 5 and (other than non-stop criticising of Trump) she openly told the kids that she hated maths, so hardly did any maths with her class. And when she did, I understand from my son that on occasions, her and the teaching assistants were corrected by other children who were obviously better and quicker at primary school maths! My son didn't allow me to complain for fear of retribution while he was in her class as he thought she could be the kind of person who will keep grudge. He unfortunately wasted a whole year in her class and I feel like I've sacrificed his future by getting him into ISU. Please do your homework before you get your kids into this school.
