When I made my commitment to the International School of Athens as the school's President, I made a commitment to every parent and every student; a promise to fulfil the vital need for a school which provides an ideal international education, a vision shared by all of us. Children spend their most important years in school. They are in their formative years, a time when they absorb knowledge and develop the skills and talents they will rely on for the rest of their lives. As modern educators we want to give our students the experiences and knowledge they need to play an active role in the international world of the 21st century. Building a strong foundation is our single goal: an international education with a view to tomorrow. How we intend to do this is reflected in an exciting program of innovations. I am confident that through our efforts, ISA will continue to be in the forefront of private education in Greece.
