150 students, 1-18 yrs.

The International School of Latvia is an independent, co-educational day school offering a multicultural curriculum in English from Toddlers to grade 12. ISL was founded in 1992 to cater for the international community but students from the host country are also welcome. The certified staff are recruited from around the world. There are also some locally recruited Latvian staff as it is important to recognize the importance of professional input from the host country.

The classrooms, support services and administrative offices are in a newly renovated wing of the Bulduri Darzkopibas Tehnikum (Horticultural School). A new library/media center was built for the 2001 school year. There are two full computer labs. There is access to an indoor gymnasium, swimming pool and auditorium, and a fenced playground with facilities to play basketball and football together with a variety of play equipment. A range of after school activities is offered and the school liaises with local organizations to provide a comprehensive programme including golf, multi-gym, aerobics, bowling, ice-skating and tennis.

The International School of Latvia follows the International Baccalaureate Primary Years (age 3-11) and Middle Years (age 11-16) Programmes. These programmes offer an international curriculum framework and prepare students for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in grades 11 and 12 (age 16-18). ISL is an IB World School.

Students from pre-school to grade 5 are in self-contained classrooms but also attend specialist classes. International School of Latvia strives to offer individualized learning programmes throughout the school. With the support of the English as a Second Language Specialist, teachers are able to address the issue of differentiation of instruction.

International School of Latvia is governed by a Board of Directors which is elected by the International School Association of Latvia. The school operates as a non-profit organisation and is accredited by the European Council of International Schools and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

International School of Latvia is a 20-minute drive from the centre of Riga in the coastal resort of Jurmala. Transportation is provided for all students in grades 1-12 for a fee.
