ISA Tianhe International School is part of the ISA International Education Group (ISAIEG), which has ambitious plans to develop a network of high-quality schools both in China and around the world, supported by a range of education-related services.
We believe in people and the power of positive relationships with and within our students, staff and communities. Our teachers are selected from amongst the best in the world and are supported by a wonderful group of administrative colleagues. As the number of ISA schools continues to increase, we see the enormous value of creating a network of schools, and the benefits that this brings to things such as professional learning, curriculum committees, sports and cultural interactions, and student and staff exchanges.
ISA Tianhe International School is the first ISA school, opened in 2015 on a unique site near downtown Guangzhou, located in a historic precinct that was formerly a canning factory. The school caters for students from Early Years to Year 5 with a Reggio Emilia- inspired Early Years programme leading to the IB PYP. ISA Tianhe has a current roll of around 300 students, with future plans to take the school up to around 700 students.
ISA Science City International School opened in August 2020 in Guangzhou Science City on the border of Tianhe and Huangpu Districts, about a 20 minute drive from ISA Tianhe. ISA Science City benefits from a state-of-the-art campus, which supports academic rigor, research, collaboration, creativity, performance and innovation for up to 1,800 students from Early Years to Year 12. The school offers a Reggio Emilia-inspired Early Years programme transitioning into the IB PYP, MYP and DP.
ISA Guangzhou West International School will become the third of the ISA schools, providing a Reggio Emilia-inspired Early Years programme that will prepare students for the IB PYP, MYP and DP. ISA Guangzhou West will be the first ISA school to be developed alongside an ISA Wenhua International Chinese School, catering for local Chinese citizens. It is expected that ISA Wenhua Guangzhou West International Chinese School will open approximately a year after ISA Guangzhou International School, circa mid-2023.
Also in August 2020, ISA embarked on a partnership project with the Guangzhou Foreign Language School, one of the most prestigious government schools in Guangdong Province. Through the ISA Wenhua Guangzhou Foreign Language IB Programme, ISA provides a three-year pre-IB Diploma and Diploma programme to a number of local Chinese students.
