The International School of Africa (ISA) is a new international school in the east African nation of Djibouti. Its capital city, also named Djibouti, is an emerging business hub in the geographic region. The country is an interesting mix of old and new, with third-world life positioned next to new state-of-the-art port facilities.
ISA currently serves students three years of age through Grade 8. We are adding a grade level each year, with our first graduating class in 2024. ISA's curriculum is based on CCSS from the USA, with our current students representing 12 countries; most hold Djiboutian passports. Our teaching staff represents 10 countries, with all (but the Foreign Language teachers) speaking native English. As a start-up school, all staff members work together to grow the ISA program; understanding that starting a new international school, in a country unfamiliar with international education, is a fulfilling and sometimes challenging pursuit.
ISA is searching for an experienced Kindergarten/Early Years teacher for our 4-year-old classroom (KG2). Our school's Early Years Program currently includes KG1/KG2/KG3, which serves 3, 4 and 5-year-old students. The four-year-old program prepares students for the learning goals of Kindergarten in the USA Common Core State Standards. It is an inquiry-based approach, with literacy and numeracy skills as well as social-emotional skills being part of the program. Students are from diverse backgrounds, some with previous school experiences and others that are coming into a school environment for the first time. Parents at this level are supportive and eager to learn more about partnering in an international education program for their child.
ISA is searching for educators that have a desire to live and work in an emerging African nation. We are looking for teachers with a heart to help grow and build an academic program that is inquiry-based. Most of all, ISA would like to find teachers that love children. Teachers that want to "meet children where they are at" academically, then work towards guiding them to success.
The International School of Africa (ISA) is a PK-Grade 8 International school serving local and international families in Djibouti. The school is adding a grade level each year (9-12) with our first graduating class in 2024. Our curriculum is based on US CCSS, with the program growing into an inquiry model of teaching and learning. The school campus is a purpose built facility, with a Strategic Plan involving 4 phases; phases 1 and 2 are complete. ISA’s mission is to promote academic excellence with an international focus. We are a culturally based partnership of students, parents, staff and community that strive to inspire students to become lifelong learners and critical thinkers engaged in an ever-changing society. Our vision views us as a pioneering educational community committed to academic excellence, innovative practice, community service and global citizenship for Africa. As ISA successfully progresses through the phases of the Strategic Plan, our vision is becoming reality.
