Enhancing Student Learning
By Barry Dequanne, Director

Each year in November, ISZL launches the Fund for Excellence, the school's priority giving programme designed to enhance learning and provide students with unique opportunities to reach their full potential. 

As is typical at international schools focused on continued advancement, annual gifts from parents, corporate partners, and staff serve to supplement learning resources above the operating budget to support mission-driven initiatives. Last year, we were able to support 15 projects in the areas of academic enhancements, art exhibitions and performances, athletic equipment, service learning and sustainability, and campus enhancements. It is through these efforts that ISZL realises new levels of educational excellence each day.

The following student testimonials highlight the impact the Fund For Excellence has had on their learning:

"The Fund for Excellence has given me new, meaningful learning experiences and activities beyond usual reach"  David.

"Without the Fund For Excellence's continued support towards Youth Forum Switzerland we would not have had the chance to further develop the event and inspire students of all ages. It has helped bring the students of the High School together and instilled a desire for change and action"  Bee.  

"The Swiss Young Naturalists' Tournament is a great afterschool activity for young scientists, and with the help of the Fund For Excellence, we were able to take part. It inspires innovation and debating skills, and every time I do the tournament I have a great time. This is what the Fund For Excellence does - it lets students have a one-of-a-kind experience that they would not be able to have otherwise"  Connor.

This coming week, community members will receive more information about the Fund For Excellence in the mail. The Fund For Excellence represents a unique opportunity for all of us to consider in supporting our children and school. Thank you in advance for your continued support and partnership.
