International Schools Service (ISS)
Cayman International School is governed by International School Services (ISS). Headquartered in Princeton, New Jersey, USA, ISS is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to excellence for children attending overseas schools worldwide. Since 1955, ISS has grown into a dynamic educational force in the overseas community. ISS is the world's leader in providing a comprehensive range of quality educational services for schools, educators, families and corporations.
A Board of Directors established by ISS is responsible for decisions on programs, policies and finances at Cayman International School. An on-site director with an experienced staff conducts the day to day operations of the school, in partnership with an ISS home office executive.
The mission of ISS governed schools “is to provide a comprehensive college preparatory accredited American/International educational program that ensures all students will become accomplished learners of good character while serving as responsible leaders within a culturally diverse global community.”
ISS-governed schools follow a U.S. calendar, seek U.S. accreditation, and offer quality American and International standards based curricula and recognized exemplary instructional strategies.
The goal of ISS schools is to provide an educational environment in which students develop a healthy self esteem, learn self-discipline, acquire knowledge and achieve competencies in a number of skill areas. They will also gain an understanding of their national heritages while recognizing their membership in a larger world community.
