Welcome to ISD Admissions
Susan Kusiima
Admissions and Alumni

Thank you for visiting our website and for considering The International School of Dakar (ISD)


Founded in 1983, ISD is an independent, English-medium international school which offers a rigorous, US-based, PreK-3 to Grade 12 curriculum enriched to reflect the needs and diversity of our international student body and faculty. Our staff has teaching experience in 55 countries and our students represent over 58 nationalities. Our diversity and experience inspire students to become lifelong learners and responsible global citizens in a rapidly-changing world.


ISD is an IB World School, offering the Diploma Programme. IB World Schools share a common philosophy, a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that ISD believes is important for our students.


You are invited to join us by exploring the ISD website which is the primary source of information about our school.   While our website provides a great deal of information about the ISD school community, we recognize that it is also important to visit and have a feel of the school. We encourage you to schedule an appointment by contacting the Admissions office.


ISD has experienced significant growth in recent years. As a result, it is usual to have waiting lists. Parents are strongly encouraged to complete applications as early as possible to guarantee a spot. Students placed on the waiting list will be admitted as space becomes available, based on the ISD school admissions policies.


We look forward to working with you throughout the admissions process.
