It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the International School of Samui website which I trust will provide you with useful information about our school. ISS is a truly wonderful school and it is a privilege to lead such a happy, energetic, and diverse international school which strives ‘for a better future’ for our children.
We strive for a positive ‘can do’ mentality throughout the school encouraging our students to love learning and endeavour to be the best they can be. We know that each child brings their own identity, interests and passions to our close, family community. We believe that children who are secure in themselves will be able to confidently express who they really are and honesty, integrity, kindness, tolerance and inclusivity are some of the values we hold dear. We push the boundaries of aspiration, taking measured risks, whilst always considering how our actions affect others.
Learning, in its many forms, is at the heart of all we do and our inspirational and experienced teachers support each student in achieving their best possible outcomes. We want our students to be independent, intellectually curious, creative problem-solvers who can communicate effectively and work with others to address challenging problems. We are proud of being a progressive, forward-looking school which provides an outstanding all-round education. We believe that each student should feel known, valued and understood as we work tirelessly to ensure that our students leave ISS equipped to thrive in an ever changing world.
I hope you ﬁnd our website informative. If you would like more information or wish to request the opportunity to visit our campus, please contact our Admissions Department, who will be delighted to help you discover the benefits that the International School of Samui offers to our students.
