Originally from Latvia, the Grigorenko family joined ISR when daughter Sofija enrolled in Kindergarten back in August ‘19. Since then, they’ve been active members of the community; they participate in all ISR events and activities and are supportive of the school.
Following the EGM held in December 2020, Mr. Grigorenko was elected to the School Council. He is the CEO of an investment company, and has also been personally involved in numerous social projects aimed at building closer ties between media companies and the local community.
When asked why his household trusted ISR with Sofija’s education, Mr. Grigorenko explains,
The International School of Riga was recommended to us by several trusted families as a diversity-driven international school with a strong academic curriculum and open-minded administration that takes into account personal needs of the families. We believe that the learning process being practiced in the school allows children to grow and develop happily in a supportive international environment. We also think that educational programs that ISR offers are able to equip our children for their future. Finally, at the time we were looking for a school for our child the school was the closest international school to our house.
