In 1955 International Schools Services was founded as a non-profit organization dedicated to providing assistance to international schools. The founder of ISS, Arthur Sweetser, spoke the following words to his colleagues in the United Nations . . . “you are working for all the ends that make life worthwhile on this planet - for peace, for the eradication of war, for human advancement, for human rights and decencies, for better living standards, better education, better travel and communications - in short, for the world as it ought to be.” When we look beyond the day-to-day tasks of our efforts with the children in our schools, we are all working towards the goal of the betterment of mankind.
We at ISS will continue to put forth our best efforts to help international schools provide the best possible education to their students as we all strive towards the goal of creating a better world for all.
