ISA History


UNESCO’s first education seminar, in 1947, was on the theme of education for international understanding.  In 1948, UNESCO published a radical pamphlet, written by Marie-Therese Maurette, the then Director of the International School of Geneva, who in promoting the need for “International-mindedness”, posited that this was a concept which needed to be “taught rather than caught”.

ISA ABRIL NEWSLETTER 2016

Happy 65th Anniversary!!

“UNESCO’S first education seminar”, in 1947, was the theme of education for international understanding.

And by 1951, a small group of Head teachers volunteered to form the Conference of Internationally Minded Schools. In the same year, with UNESCO backing together with the support of staff, parents and governors of the International School of Geneva and the United Nations International School in New York, the International Schools Association (ISA) was founded. ISA was the first educational, nongovernmental organization (NGO) to have, and to continue to have, consultative status at UNESCO. ISA’s member schools and its committed Board of Directors have made it possible for ISA to celebrate its 65th Anniversary. They have been intense years of promoting international understanding in schools, preparing conferences, Youth Leadership Encounters and creating a stronger network of like-minded schools. Today ISA is working towards another 65 years of commitment and dedication to help further world peace and international understanding through education.
