WHY CHOOSE ISR?
The International School of Riga is the most centrally located international school in Riga. Our Secondary campus is nestled in the heart of Riga’s sprawling concrete jungle. ISR students tap into the pulse of the city through experiential learning, internships, and community service.
Our High School students are willing to take risks, think critically and reflect on their actions and knowledge. They are also encouraged to take the most rigorous courses in which they can be academically successful. Our goal is that, by the end of their high school lives, students are ready, academically and emotionally, for the next stage in their journey.
ISR is home to an outstanding group of international educators. Led by Ms. Sarah McGinley, IBDP Coordinator, our Secondary teachers are not just experienced educators; they are Diploma Programme Examiners, Workshop Leaders, and Coaches. Many teachers are bilingual and all have strong communication skills. ISR’s ideal teacher is high-energy, experienced, and adaptive.
Like their students, ISR teachers are life-long learners. Professional development is organized to meet the emerging needs of our diverse urban community. Teachers work together to hone their skills in inquiry-based instruction, project-based learning, gamification strategies, and adaptation of new technologies to the classroom.
