ISM has provided the perfect preperation for my son Mikhail to make an easy and smooth transition to his new school in England.

We were very happy with the Rosinka ISM school; it has the correct balance between academic excellence while maintaining itself as a local community school. There are few expatriate assignments where your children can both scooter or bike to school and receive such a high standard of education...this is a real luxury!
parent
Thank you ISM team for the great work you have done with our children. It has been a fantastic experience and we wish you all the best for the future. Hopefully, one day we can join again.

Albert has enjoyed his stay at the ISM tremendously. We had the impression that his talents and and ambitions are valued and utilized and he was able to flourish in a short period of time. The school has made our transition to Russia so much easier for Albert and we are very grateful for that. We and especially Albert are very sad that we have to leave the ISM. Thank you for a great year.

It has been great 2.5 years that my son spent at ISM. As a parent, I have been very pleased with the quality of education provided, the effort that the teaching staff puts into the learning process, highly professional services provided by school's administration department, friendliness and availability of school's personnel, general culture and atmosphere in the school. My son has got many good friends and really enjoyed being in the school every day. He will certainly miss the ISM! Thank you very much to all who works in the school! It is with a sadness in our hearts that we are leaving.

Our family considers ISM as a great school with high academic standards, providing quality British education combined with rich school life. It has a superb balance of discipline and personality development. It is also a great international environment in which children from all over the world study together, adding to each one new experiences of their home cultures. Our son highly enjoyed his time in ISM and he is very sad to leave the school, the teachers and his friends!

Our children will be leaving ISM with the warmest memories - they have made fantastic progress both academically and in extra-curricular pursuits, thanks to the teachers and the wonderful support.

I began work for the British Schools Foundation at the International School of Moscow in August 2008. I had previous Key Stage management experience and joined the five-person SMT as Assessment and CPD Coordinator. During the Spring Term of 2010 I was offered the opportunity to be the founding Headteacher of the new British School of Tashkent in the Uzbek capital. It was a logical step for me, both in my teaching career and as a speaker of the Russian language and one which I enjoyed thoroughly.

...My son told us, "my life at school is happy now"....He has become much more responsible and is able to manage his time more effectively. He loves school and we are very pleased with his academic results.

The best thing is to see our son developing, getting stronger, more confident and more open. I love to see his interests grow and how kind and understanding he can be.

I would strongly recommend ISM as a place where each child finds the personal attention and support, where his talents and skills will be noticed and developed, where he will get lessons in humanity kindness and respect.

Thank you for all your efforts for Eugene, she has developed so much during her time at ISM.  We really appreciate all teachers and staff's valuable support for our child.
parent
We have very much enjoyed our years at ISM. Our children have enjoyed great education and gained a lot of self-confidence during their Early School years. Great staff and warm school community will always make us think back of our Moscow experience.
parent
Our girls have been very happy at ISM. They have benefited hugely from being taught in small classes by some very dedicated and talented teachers. Academic standards are high, and the PE teaching is excellent too. Thanks to the National Curriculum they will easily slot back into the UK system, though they are sure to miss the fascinating mix of people you find at an international school. Many thanks to everyone at ISM.
