Since 1987 the school has provided high-quality education with individual attention and care for each of its students. It provides a stable and positive environment for teaching and learning – one which recognises the values of self-discipline, of diversity and cooperation. It aims to consistently maintain the high expectations of ISOP’s students and to support the objectives they set for themselves. Valuable partners in and contributors to this effort are not only the students and staff but also their families and other members of the community. All these factors have contributed to 30 years in which the school has acted as a pioneer in many areas that determine the quality of educational services. Continuous emphasis on professional training and development for its teaching staff forms part of the school’s success. As a result of its high teaching standards, pupils of ISOP frequently win awards from international examination boards and go on to study at renowned universities abroad.
