Growing our International Community
This year ISA can count on the support of 10 New School Members. We would like to give a strong WELCOME to our newest schools: SEK Guayaquil (Ecuador), International School of Western Australia (Australia), Santa Monica International School (Japan) and Gentry International School (Philippines). With these new members and our strong school network we can continue to publicize the aims and principles of international schools and promote international understanding among national schools.
