Founded in 1929, and purchased by International Schools Services (ISS) in 2004, the International School of Aruba (ISA) has a rich history on this unique and beautiful Caribbean island. The only school in Aruba accredited by both AdvancEd and the Dutch department of education, ISA hosts 220 students from 35 countries in pre-school through grade 12. An American standards-based curriculum enables a whole child approach through a balance of academics, arts and athletics embedded in 21st century learning practices. Graduates attend college and university in the US, Canada, Holland, Europe and Latin America.
Teachers are empowered through a distributive leadership model in a true Professional Learning Community that encourages growth for all stakeholders as we work together to provide a superior learning environment for students. ISA provides teachers a rich environment for the development of collaborative teaching in a standards-based curriculum model. Teacher performance evaluation is based on the AASSA teacher standards and model which incorporates self-reflection components, student feedback, and supervisor observations.
ISA is guided by best practice Learning Principles leading students to be confident learners in a supportive setting.
Housed in a new purpose-built campus, the school facilities are fully air conditioned and wired for connectivity. A new world languages and arts complex, as well as a new soccer field and beach volleyball and tennis courts, have enabled a recent expansion of programs generating considerable enthusiasm among the local community and staff. Teachers are encouraged to develop a healthy balanced life-style engaging in water activities and enjoying the natural beauty that sets this island apart.
