I would like to wish you a warm welcome to the website of the International School Seychelles (ISS).
Founded in 1969, ISS is a co-educational non-profit making school on the island of Mahe in the Seychelles. From small beginnings the school has grown steadily and today has over 700 pupils on roll, aged 3-18 years and representing over 30 nationalities.
Pupils follow an international version of the UK curriculum and we are committed to providing the best possible international education in an English speaking environment . We aim to deliver academic rigour within a holistic, well-rounded and balanced educational context in which we prepare our pupils for their future as well adjusted citizens of the world.
External exam results are consistently excellent.
We are an inclusive school and we place great importance on community and togetherness as we strive to live our mission statement ‘You are born not for yourself, but for the world…’ A sense of selflessness and care towards others pervades the school environment. Our social fabric is rich, dynamic and supportive and our multi-cultural staff are committed to the holistic education of all pupils.
Independent thinking, taking responsibility, reflection, creativity, mutual respect, consideration and perseverance are typical of the aptitudes, skills and competences we aim to develop.
We also have an exceptional range of extra-curricular programs and believe that much important learning and development of character and personal skills happens outside the walls of the classroom.
Please come to visit our wonderful school, meet the community and ask any questions you may have.
We look forward to meeting you.
