Our Vision

We aim to develop lifelong learners who will be a force for positive change in the world.


The oldest, most diverse International School in Yangon.

Founded in Yangon in 1955, The International School Yangon (ISY) is a non-profit PreK through 12th Grade school. We offer an American Curriculum up to Grade 10 and the International Baccalaureate program for Grades 11 and 12. ISY is committed to becoming a carbon neutral school, with a meat free campus, recycled food waste and a strong commitment to solar energy.

The Environment and ISY

The environment has always been a top priority for the ISY Community. In 2018 this was formalized when ‘Environmental Consciousness’ was made into one of our core themes.

From solar panels to composting and from High School student action campaigns to Elementary School gardening clubs, protecting our planet is part of who we are.

Service Learning at ISY

Recognizing the opportunity to contribute to change in both our own, as well as the larger community around us, ISY strives to be a leader in Service Learning as a means to engage as global citizens .

Service Learning is one of ISY’s Strategic Themes.  From working with the Yangon Animal Shelter to our partnership with the United World Schools Project, Service Learning is part of everything we do at ISY.
