As the end of the school year approaches, students are busy preparing for finals and making their last presentations of the school year. On May 14, it was time for the students in IB English A to share their final projects. Working in teams over the course of several weeks, the students decided on a topic and how to present the material. One team, Paolo, B, Minami, Toni, Naoki, Yasu, Toni and  Sangita, chose  the book To Kill a Mockingbird and addressed the topic of social class in the U.S. during the 1930’s through a skit.

Imagine… if there was an ISAK lower school!

Dear Friends of UWC ISAK,

UWC ISAK is celebrating its 10th anniversary! We are proud of where we’ve come from, and we are excited about the next decade.

At this important milestone, we are wondering – in pursuit of broadening our impact, could an ISAK Lower School be considered as one of the options and would it be feasible? A school that embraces ISAK values and vision for a better future?

As we embark on this journey, if you would like to participate in possible market research and receive updates, please subscribe to our mailing list.
