Feedback from our community:

"We were warmly welcomed for our first visit at ISN, and we immediately felt the goodwill and kindness toward us. We particularly appreciated the possibility for our son to join ISN in the course of the academic year, as well as the individual meetings and the two shadow days before making a definitive decision. I would also like to highlight the flexibility of the school regarding the class integration, which allowed our son to adapt smoothly by putting him in classes adapted to his abilities. The pedagogical team and particularly the pastoral care is very comprehensive and available. We really appreciate the follow up and the attentive ear of key members of ISN such as the counsellor and the director or pastoral care. Finally, Ms. Curtis has an open door and is always available for families."
