“I have attended the Int`l School of Bucharest starting all the way from pre-school up until year 11. I met great people from all around the world and I can confidently say that the time we spent there was priceless. Throughout those many years, both my teachers and my friends have made me feel like as if it was my second home. I strongly believe that ISB has contributed greatly to what I am as a person now, regarding both the knowledge that I have and the attitude I have towards life.”
Alphan Safi (University of Westminster, London, UK
“ISB has provided me with a fruitful environment that prompted me to achieve my greatest potential on an academic platform. In addition to fueling my ambition, I have developed strong ties with equally ambitious peers that even today I consider great friends. The international setting has provided me with key notions of our increasingly globalised world allowing me to develop prominent characteristics in today’s competitive work environment.”
Tarek Cheaib (University College London, London, UK)
"I spent 13 amazing years in ISB, filled with countless memories and excellent academic achievements. Coming to this school with little to no knowledge of the English language, I can now proudly say that ISB helped me become not only a native speaker, but pushed me to achieve all my academic successes thus far. I am now a Law student in a Top 50 university in the United Kingdom. ISB offered me lots of support along the years - I am extremely grateful for them.
