Superintendent’s 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. ISOI offers the IB Diploma Programme, which is well-established as the hallmark of a rigorous, inquiry-based instructional curriculum throughout Europe, Asia, and North America. The IBDP is recognized by educational authorities throughout the world as one of the best college preparatory programs. ISOI is also an authorized PYP School, offering the Primary Years Programme.

ISOI has been serving the diplomatic and expatriate community of Islamabad and Rawalpindi for over 55 years. ISOI has been continuously accredited by the Middles States Association of Colleges and Schools since 1979. 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 mission and vision, and creates the Plan to achieve that vision. The Planning Team consists of parents, students, teachers, support staff, alumni, board members and administrators.

ISOI is honored to have been invited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools to use the prestigious Sustaining Excellence Protocol for its current re-accreditation cycle. In today’s world, it is essential that students develop rigorous intellectual curiosity. As part of the Sustaining Excellence Protocol, ISOI will be researching how best to enable our students to internalize this soft skill for future success.

ISOI has long been a leader in International Schools. ISOI was the pilot school for the Near East South Asia Virtual School. ISOI’s 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 Association Pakistan, and an integral partner with the IBO World Team guiding the development of IB Schools in the Asia Pacific Regional. We continue to innovate, reflect and refine teaching at ISOI and believe our research into helping students acquire essential soft skills will benefit our students.

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.
