ISZN offers a creative and stimulating learning environment that encourages the holistic development of the individual learner.
Our aim is to equip students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to navigate an ever-changing complex world and to develop a community of lifelong learners. Our belief is in an internationally minded approach through learning experiences which connects students to the global and local community.
The PYP is an international curriculum framework designed for children between the ages of 3 and 12 years, taught through guided inquiry and concept-based teaching and learning approaches.
The program focuses on the development of the whole learner, so in addition to academic achievement, the program strongly emphasises the social, physical, emotional, and cultural growth of all students.
Whether native speakers or complete beginners, all pupils in the Primary School receive German language lessons. Classes are small and proficiency grouped, meaning that pupils make rapid progress regardless of the starting level.
Early Years education takes place from the ages of 3 to 6 years and consists of Nursery, Pre-K and Kindergarten. During this period, we lay the foundations for the journey ahead, preparing children for a happy and successful progression towards the next stage of their education.
In the Middle Years, we recognise that the needs of our students, both academic and personal, differ significantly from those in Primary and Upper years and that it is during these years that character traits that will shape their lives for years to come, are entrenched.
We are very proud of our Grade 9 to 12 students and do our utmost to support every individual as they find their place in the world via supportive pastoral care, careers, university and academic guidance.
In Grades 11 and 12, students study Cambridge International A-Levels; recognised and highly regarded around the world. The syllabuses develop a deep understanding of subjects and independent thinking skills. Students can choose from traditional subjects such as Maths and English, to more contemporary subjects such as Computer Science or Business Studies.
