Message from the Director

Welcome back to school for the 2020-2021 school year. The school begins for our students on Sunday, 13 September 2020. Teachers are actively preparing their lessons to start online and for transitioning to on-campus learning, as soon as health and safety conditions allow. All of us at school are excited to greet our students to start the new school year.


We strongly believe that ISD is an exceptional school providing the PYP, MYP, and the DP, International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes for the past 21 years. We are a global community having students and teachers from 23 different nationalities with an enrollment of over 400 students in Early Years through Grade 12. A total of 105 faculty members, along with many support staff are here to welcome and support you.


Small class sizes and caring teachers are the core of our school to provide personalized education. We strive to ensure a balanced education that not only develops our students’ knowledge but also makes them a global citizen. Every child is unique, and our teachers work tirelessly to bring out the best in each student, every day.


Whether you are already a part of the ISD community or just arriving, we intend to provide timely and useful information on our website and social media platforms. You will find the following links on our website that may help you to find more about the school:



You are also welcome to visit our online platforms on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.


At the International School Dhaka, we strongly agree with the sentiment that every person should, “Develop a passion for learning… if you do, you will never cease to grow.” - [D’Angelo] We commit to partnering with each family so that every student develops their passion and grows to their potential.


My wishes to one and all for a happy and successful 2020-2021.


Warm regards,
Kurt Nordness
International School Dhaka
