Dear Parents and Students
We come to the end of another incredible, and incredibly busy school year here at Istanbul International School.
Suffice it to say that it is always busy, and our children are always inspiring as seen in various performances over the year and especially at New Year and on April 23 for our annual concert. Our Graduation ceremonies, as ever, provide a very fitting end to the year, as we celebrate the academic achievement of so many students.
All three campuses this year have functioned well and we have seen around 50 nationalities being taught by a thoroughly dedicated group of teachers from a host of different countries.
Alongside academics we have been constantly reminded of our responsibilites as world citizens and have had involvement in a number of charitable projects here in Turkey, some for locals and others for refugees. Parents are a very important part of a successful school and we are grateful to many who have helped their children and the school with these different projects over the school year.
Looking forward to next school year we will be welcoming newcomers – students and teachers. We are also looking forward to welcome back to work our teachers who have been on maternity leave. In the key areas concerning learning, we will be continuing to maintain and improve in the following areas:
