Welcome to ISD High School!
Grade 9 to Grade 12
Welcome to the International School of Dakar. ISD is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, offering the Diploma Programme (Grades 11 and 12). IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that ISD believes is important for our students.
Our high school is a vibrant, active, and student-centered place of learning. One of the most distinctive features of our school is its diversity. Students come from over 50 different countries and speak many languages, although English is the language of instruction and the social language on campus. This rich mosaic of cultures allows students to be exposed to a variety of perspectives and personalities as they work and socialize with their peers and teachers. One of our CORE values is open-mindedness and being surrounded by peers from all over the globe helps one become open-minded.
Students at ISD express themselves in many creative ways. As Creativity is another of our CORE values, students explore and perform in the areas of music, art, and drama. Whether it is through a drama class, an after school rock band, or through work on a school mural project, our students have many ways in which they can explore and cultivate their creative talents.
The high school division of the International School of Dakar is a special place where students come together from a wide range of backgrounds to learn, create, and explore. Please stop by for a visit or contact us for more information. Our new centre for teaching and learning, aptly named the “Teranga Centre” is located on the ground floor near the basketball courts. We encourage you to call in with questions and to learn more about what we have to offer at ISD.
