THE ISR DIFFERENCE
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.
ISR has a highly skilled Primary Division headed by Ms. Amanda Romey, the School Principal/Deputy Director. She is supported by Ms. Ginta Karklina, the PYP Coordinator. Together they combine 47 years of experience. Student learning is guided by a Homeroom Advisor, a Support teacher, and a variety of Specialist teachers.
ISR is one of the longest established international schools in Latvia. ISR was founded as a playgroup and the playgroup developed into a school. The PYP was chosen as a programme to implement because it develops the whole person. 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.
The adage is that “it takes a village to raise a child.” At ISR, every adult is considered a teacher. Students can learn from everyone, from the custodial staff to the Director.
