Our list of schools here is now limited to one school which is considered (although not necessarily chosen) by English-speaking expat parents.
If there is no ribbon, pending or otherwise, it means we are aware of the school but have elected not to review it at this time. This could be for a number of reasons, but we continually update information and add or remove reviews as deemed appropriate.
Schools selected for full GSGI review are noted with next to their names.
By full GSGI review, we mean the school write-ups that are completely selected, researched, visited and written by our own editors. Our final write-ups take the good with the bad, warts and all, but we look for a preponderance of good before we drill down for in-depth details descend on the school for an exhaustive visit.
International School of Islamabad
PYP/ Adapted curriculum/ IB Diploma; ages 4-18; co-ed; day; independent; private non-profit
Currently, student numbers are down due to the restriction of many international companies and diplomatic services on spouses and dependents. ISOI has a long history of taking in children from many different nationalities, language levels, abilities and schooling experience. The general philosophy is very much on the child and on getting each child settled; staff include an Elementary counselor and a High school counselor. The facilities at ISOI are excellent and non-academic areas are well endowed. Many of the ex-pat staff have stayed, in spite of the current climate. Accredited by the Middle States Association (MSA).
