Leila Akahloun - 1995

"ISB provided me with a solid academic foundation and eye-opening international experiences through my participation at THIMUN and BEIMUN events. I was able to handle my undergraduate and graduate classes with relative ease thanks to the rigor of the IB curriculum at ISB, which then positioned me well to pursue a career in international development."

Fred Chang from ISB
Fred Chang - 2012

"Being at ISB has allowed me to develop my skills in learning new technologies and comfortably incorporating them in my work flow. Combine that with all the different nationalities and cultural backgrounds in the classroom, it became very clear to me I was in a very special place and well-positioned for the global economy."

"I did the first half of the IB Programme and then I decided to do something different. It doesn't work for everyone and they let you design your studies more yourself."

Eric Livdahl - 2007

"ISB prepped me most for my current career by creating constant opportunities to interact with new people and places through APAC and China Studies trips, and forcing me to work and make friends with an ever-changing international group from a wide variety of cultural, economic and linguistic backgrounds."

Christopher Nobre - 2011

"Flat out the best college prep I could have ever imagined. While my new friends and classmates were struggling through the first few weeks and months of engineering at a top university, I felt right at home with the rigor of the IB Programme. I'm also thankful for the CAS program that pushed me to explore new things and encouraged me to live a more balanced lifestyle." 

Camille Cheng - 2011

"Two of the biggest things that I have learned at ISB were the idea of balance and striving for excellence. I believe that having a balance allows me to be more well-rounded. The culture of excellence at ISB motivated me to keep learning, growing, and striving to be the best Camille that I can be."
