Superintendent's Welcome Message
Whether you are browsing through our website to find out more about our outstanding school or are searching for specific information as a member of our ISOI community, welcome to our website and to our extended school community.
ISOI is very proud to be an IB World School, offering the IB Diploma Programme, which is recognized as one of the most distinctive college-preparatory programs worldwide. Well-established as the hallmark of a rigorous, inquiry-based instructional curriculum throughout Europe and North America, the IBDP is recognized by educational authorities throughout the world.
ISOI is a PYP Candidate School, offering the Primary Years Programme. The School anticipates applying for authorization in the fall of the 2017-18 School Year.
ISOI was the first international school accredited by Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools through the Accreditation for Growth protocol, as well as the first international school re-accredited under this protocol. Our community is committed to following a Strategic Plan. Strategic planning is a collaborative process through which the entire school community defines our core beliefs, determines our shared vision, and creates the Plan to achieve that vision. Our school is completing its third Strategic Planning cycle. The Planning Team of 19 parents, students, teachers, support staff, alumni, board members and administrators has strengthened and refined our existing vision to create an exciting and rigorous plan to guide ISOI.
Our vision is that each student will:
· Demonstrate academic growth to reach his / her potential.
· Enthusiastically make positive contributions to the community.
· Exhibit intellectual curiosity that inspires excitement about learning.
The School will begin it fourth Strategic Plan in the 2016-17 School Year.
Our community has proven itself to be resourceful, committed and resilient in the face of external challenges. Even though the political and security situation in Pakistan has been uncertain, the school has retained its position of excellence in the world of international education. ISOI was the pilot school for the Near East South Asia Virtual School. Our virtual school initiatives have become the model for other schools around the world. The program has grown to become the World Virtual School. ISOI was also one of the ten pilot schools for the MAP North West Education Association Assessment Project to establish international school norms for the MAP assessment. ISOI is a founding member of the IBPAK, the International Baccalaureate Pakistan, an integral partner with the IBO World Team guiding the development of IB Schools in the Asia Pacific Regional.
We hope our website is informative and provides you with the answers to many of your questions, as well as an insight into our vision for our students.
Ms. Rose C. Puffer
