Welcome to the International School of Latvia
Welcome to the International School of Latvia website. We are very proud to be the only PK – 12 IB World School in the Baltics. We have students attending from over 28 countries and faculty representing the US, England, Canada, Latvia, Israel, Australia, and Russia. This diversity gives our students a truly International experience.
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on March 27, 2013 in the ISL Media Center. During the meeting, the members present heard from Juan Gruben, ISL Finance Council Chair, about the financial health of ISL and voted to use the audit firm of SIA Potapovica un Andersone for the 2013 audit.
It was also reported that ISL continues to make facility improvements. During the summer we will be expanding our parking lot and recently we have added lockers for grades 4 and 5. In order to accommodate our increased enrollment (we already have 304 students registered) ISL has decided to split grades 2 and 4. Additionally we will also split classes in the Middle school core subjects (such as Math, Science, English and Humanities) and add four additional middle school teachers. By doing this we will be able to maintain the high academic standards that ISL has established, by keeping our student–teacher ratios low. We will also be adding a school counselor to the staff. The ISL Council is committed to providing the highest level of academics possible to every student enrolled at ISL.
Hardija Vaivade, ISL Council Chair, informed the members that there will be no increase in tuition or capital fee for the 2013 - 2014 school year. She reminded the members that this is the fourth year in a row that ISL has not raised tuition.
Hardija Vaivade and Irina Jantayeva were elected to the ISL Council for a two year term starting June 1, 2013. It was noted that an additional three Council seats will be available in the fall.
