International Schools Consortium

International Schools Consortium (iSC) is a nonprofit organization that, since 1986, has offered excellent academic programs to meet the intellectual, physical, and emotional needs of students. iSC has six schools in China — in Chengdu, Qingdao, Wuhan, Wuxi, Tianjin, and Yantai — one school in the UAE, and helps to support various other educational initiatives globally. iSC is a multi-school program, enabling students and teachers to participate in system-wide programs where they can interact with others outside of their immediate school. Students compete in basketball, volleyball and soccer tournaments, as well as music and choral festivals, and Model United Nations (MUN) conventions.

Head of School Welcome

Welcome!

It is a privilege and an honour to warmly welcome you to the International School of Qingdao (ISQ). As a committed and passionate team of educators across pre-kindergarten to grade 12, the staff here at ISQ are dedicated in nurturing, equipping and mentoring young people to be positive, active and influential members of their communities. We believe each young person is uniquely gifted and we are devoted to supporting each of them to discover their talents and fulfil their academic potential.

The teachers and staff at ISQ are focused on modeling and developing 21st century learners who are creative, collaborative, flexible and innovative, who are critical thinkers and who are able to naturally problem solve.  In addition to this, we see the importance of cultivating character and integrity and encouraging students to have a heart for others. Our students are highly motivated and are also supported by committed parents and families, who are key members of our flourishing school community.

The International School of Qingdao offers a wide range of quality educational opportunities both within and beyond the formal timetable. The academic and co-curriculum programs are current, utilize the current technology and respond to emerging trends in education and the marketplace.
Our students are highly motivated and are also supported by committed parents and families, who are key members of our flourishing school community.
