Primary School | Ages 6 - 11

focusING on the needs and wellbeing of each student


The Primary School is a thriving and connected learning community where children and families experience a sense of belonging, through friendship and the joy of working, playing and learning together.

We value children as active learners who choose, plan, act and challenge themselves. This stimulates a climate of reciprocity that encourages listening to children, trust, communication and social interaction.

As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, our philosophies and teaching and learning programme are developed within the Primary Years Programme (PYP) framework.

We recognise that collaboration between teachers, children and parents produce positive, productive relationships and we view parents as partners in their child’s education as we aim to create an atmosphere of community, collaboration and trust.

We look forward to welcoming your child to the Primary School!

Before the first day of school, we had a couple of days to adapt and the children were so excited. We really appreciated the new student orientation that ISZL hosts. Before the start of school, our children had the chance to meet with their teachers, tour around the school, meet other new students and learn about school life and the everyday routines. For parents, the orientation was a great way to connect with the school leadership, faculty and staff as well to wander around at the information fair for all kinds of support. After that first day, we knew we had made the right choice.

What we appreciate the most about ISZL and its educational system is the way new students are placed directly into an English speaking learning environment, even without any prior knowledge.
