Welcome to the International School of Western Australia (ISWA).  We are a growing, energetic and enthusiastic community of students, teachers and parents all working together to provide a quality learning environment. 

As you browse through the pages of our website, you will see that we are a school that offers an inspiring, varied learning program for our students and a challenging, fulfilling working environment for our staff.  We are fortunate to be part of a very caring, diverse and stimulating community.

ISWA is an International Baccalaureate World School and as such is accredited to teach the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program. We are part of an emergent network of IB Schools in Western Australia that share a common philosophy - a commitment to a high quality, challenging, international education that will equip our students to become compassionate and productive global citizens.

The school is registered with the College Board (USA) to offer the rigorous Advanced Placement (AP) courses to our older students - the only school in Australia to do so.  ISWA is also registered with the Department of Education Services (Government of Western Australia).

Our students have achieved outstanding results in the NAPLAN tests (National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy) which has placed us amongst the top schools in Australia. You can read more about these results and other aspects of the school's performance under School Performance.

The famous proverb says that it "takes a village" to raise a child. In the case of our school, it is a village of global citizens who have come from far and wide.  But we are no less the village for our global outlook.  In fact, I think it helps us be all that a village can be – by working in collaboration we have accomplished so much more than we could have done alone. 

If you are new to ISWA, I encourage you to explore our website and get to know us a little better. If you would like to visit us and find out more, you are more than welcome to come and have a closer look at who we are and what we do. We look forward to meeting you!
