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 a native French speaker trained in teaching young adolescents French. Our classes in grades 4-8 are a mix of native French speakers and first-time French learners. Classes at these grades are leveled, currently at two levels: beginner/low intermediate and high intermediate/proficient. Djibouti is a former French colony and the French presence is still strong.  Many families that come to ISA speak French at home and want to maintain academic levels of reading, writing, speaking and listening; this is with the understanding that the main language of academic focus at ISA is English.

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.
