THE ISR DIFFERENCE
ISR is one of the longest established international schools in Latvia. ISR was founded in 1997 as a playgroup and the playgroup developed into a school. Through carefully following each child’s growth and learning, we foster individual success both in academic development and social-emotional wellbeing. Teachers aim to differentiate and personalize learning as much as possible to help each student reach their potential.
Whether their stay is short lived or long lasting, all members of the ISR family call Latvia “home”. ISR is an International School with a Latvian Heart. Families who are part of our community experience and celebrate Latvia as a unique country with a rich heritage. When families embark on the next phase of their life journey, they take a little piece of Latvia with them.
ISR prides itself on having strong roots into the local community through charity work and sharing both educational knowledge and resources with local schools.
At ISR, our students’ social-emotional wellbeing is at the center of everything we do. In Middle School, it takes the form of a strong Pastoral Care program. In order for the ISR mission to be a living statement, it is imperative all members of the community feel safe and secure. The emotional and social well-being of staff and students is maintained through the relationships developed, allowing members to grow and develop.
In Middle School, students are taught by a number of different teachers thus students need to know there is one teacher who is providing not just academic support but also emotional support. In Secondary, each grade has at least two advisors. The advisor provides pastoral support to all students in their advisory group. Throughout the year advisors develop a relationship with the students in their advisory group that allows the students to feel safe and supported in the school.
