A non-profit Pre-K through 12th Grade international school. Founded in 1955, ISY is the oldest international school in Myanmar and the most diverse.
For over sixty years, ISY had been dedicated to providing the best education possible to the local and international community in Myanmar. Our mission is that The International School Yangon is a community of compassionate global citizens and our vision is to develop lifelong learners who will be a force for positive change in the world. Following a series of focus groups with a large number of parents near the beginning of the 2019-20 school year, I was pleased to note how internalized these important themes have become in the way we do things at ISY.
At the same time our mission and vision were established, we also identified eight strategic themes that would form the basis of our school for the coming years. These include commitments to service learning, inclusion in the classroom, environmental consciousness, technology integration, and the celebration of our culture and diversity. Two years on, I am proud to say that the community lives and breathes our mission, vision and our strategic themes.
The bedrock of the ISY experience is community. From the moment you pass through our gates, you find yourself surrounded by an outstanding faculty and staff representing a variety of different countries all dedicated to providing unconditional care to our students. Our parents who are actively engaged in supporting the ISY experience promote this strong sense of community through daily interactions and activities.
Finally, our boutique style campus is a constant hub of activity as students participate in sports, clubs, service projects, and other opportunities where they encourage each other, developing lifelong friendships. The sense of community permeates through every aspect of life at ISY.
From our purpose-built sports, arts and science complex to our historic administration building, it is quickly apparent why ISY is an educational leader in Myanmar, the region, and the world.
