Director's Welcome

Welcome to the International School of Dongguan! I look forward to collaborating with students, staff, parents and the community in creating a successful 2017-2018 school year. ISD is committed to a versatile curriculum to help mold well-rounded students to be ready to explore the world and to Inspire, Succeed and to Dream!

Students from Preschool to High School are engaged in a variety of activities designed to foster their intellectual, physical and emotional growth that ultimately prepares our students for studies throughout the world in areas of math, science, the arts, humanities, languages, technology and physical education. Our modern facilities, include an IT/ robotics Makerspace room, Visual Arts studios for working in various mediums, a versatile music curriculum, Black Box Theatre, Science labs, and a modern multipurpose sports field for baseball and soccer, and a fully equipped gymnasium.

For Grades 11 and 12, ISD has the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program, a rigorous middle school program and a learning centered preschool and kindergarten program dedicated to meeting the needs of the whole child to ensure they become responsible citizens of our global community.

I look forward to working together with each of you in the coming school year. Our success is a collaboration of each individual as we capitalise on the exceptional talents that each of you bring to your school to make it an International School designed for success. On behalf of the staff at ISD, our doors are open. Come on in and build a future.
