This overview of many of our excellent institutions shares the unique spirit of each school, and provides a chance to meet the students developing their skill and talents and building their futures at our schools.

GR 12, Ugandan, notes “ISU helped me to contribute to the well-being of my community. I worked Malaika Babies’ Home, Fairway Primary School, Project Smile Uganda, and Tusome Kati Literacy Outreach. ISU produces compassionate global citizens - future leaders in global arenas. The rigors of the IB, a supportive ISU family, and the opportunity learn from people with different cultures, has enabled me to understand a range of perspectives and helped me to analyze and act on complex ethical issues in an authentic way.
“KISU has a diverse student body ranging from Albania to Zambia, Bolivia to Yemen and all the nations in between. Friendships made here are so unique and definitely the experience of a lifetime. KISU is amazing and you won’t forget your experience here!”
“KISU encourages children to interact with different people and allows them to become more open-minded and creative.
