ISKL has been honored with this year’s Excellence in Education award at the Think Global People and Relocate award ceremony held in the UK on June 8, 2023. The prestigious award recognizes outstanding education and support to students and their families throughout their time at the school. It is a testament to the quality of transition care provided by ISKL and the strength of its educational program.

“The Relocate Awards are renowned for innovation and pushing the boundaries,” said BBC broadcaster and BAFTA-nominated journalist Ms. Jayne Constantinis who hosted the award ceremony alongside Ms. Fiona Murchie, founder of UK’s Relocate Global. Ms. Murchie commended the award recipients saying, “As well as striving for and achieving excellence, all our award winners are truly making a difference in people’s lives. We are so proud to be able to honor every one of them.”

ISKL’s incoming Director of Enrollment Management, Ms. Christina Decu, was at the ceremony to receive the award. “It’s a great honor and fantastic to see ISKL being recognized in this way. Getting transition care right is so important. We know that for families relocating around the world, finding the best-fit school for their child and family can be one of the biggest stressors – joining a community like ISKL, with its culture of inclusion, welcoming community, high-quality program, and school-wide support, helps make the mobility experience so much easier to navigate.”

The 2023 Awards took innovation as its over-arching theme with the aim of highlighting excellence and providing the framework for organizations of all sizes to demonstrate exciting and novel approaches that contribute to best practices in global mobility. 

With a community of more than 1,600 students representing 70 nationalities, ISKL is well-versed in the importance of transition care for each of its stakeholder groups which include students, parents, internationally recruited teachers, and staff. 

ISKL has curated a range of innovative resources for its prospective and current community members, including a downloadable interactive Transition Pathways eBook, a dedicated Let’s Talk Transition webinar series featuring parents and students, as well as a range of transition workshops. ISKL’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) also plays an active role in fostering the school’s culture of inclusion with a calendar of community-building initiatives, including its Adopt A Panther Parent program that connects new families with current parents to provide a supportive network.

Recognizing every student learns differently, ISKL provides school-wide support for all students via its multidisciplinary Student Services team comprising counselors, psychologists, English as an additional language, and learning resource specialists who work in tandem with classroom teachers. Elementary students have access to a dedicated in-house speech and language pathologist. ISKL’s innovative Life-Centered Education support service is available for students with more significant intellectual, learning, or developmental differences.

Language-specific hubs, multilingual workshops, parent-led English conversation classes, community ambassadors, cultural festivals and exchange clubs, and native-language speaker library initiatives are also available to support families.
