ISS International School Singapore (Singapore)
Choosing educational programmes in uncertain times

From the Primary Years Programme (PYP) to the five year Middle Years Programme (MYP) which ends with International Baccalaureate (IB) validated eAssessment grades based on final examinations and coursework, ISS believes that students are fully equipped with the skills necessary to succeed in the IB Diploma Programme and are ready for university and the next journey in higher education. This readiness, we believe, is best achieved within the IB Continuum and without deviating in and out of other curricula that are not affiliated with the IB.

As Singapore’s longest established IB Continuum School, ISS International School students benefit from the entire framework that the International Baccalaureate offers. Our IB-based academic curriculum incorporates our bespoke educational philosophy and this is what we believe makes our academic programmes different. Our IB faculty adapt their curriculum delivery based on what they observe is the way their students learn best. Additionally, our IB teachers develop study plans that suit their learners in order to excite and encourage them to realise their full potential.
