Our mission & values

Say Hello

People and ISSOS

We take pride in the fact that we are a relatively small head office team at ISSOS. It means that when you call or email us, you will only ever speak to one of six people and we can build meaningful relationships with our ISSOS Families around the world. 

Our summer school teams are individually selected and are highly qualified and motivated to deliver an incredible experience for our students. 

Our Academic and Elective teachers are carefully chosen not just based on their qualifications, but for their expertise and experience in their subjects. Our summer school counselors and campus management teams also have a vast amount of experience in working with young people and in education, and many of them are teachers in their full-time roles too. Everyone in our summer team shares the same passion for working with young people and making sure that ISSOS is The Experience of a Lifetime for all of our students.
