International School of Helderberg

International School of Helderberg

A South African school with an International perspective. The International School of Helderberg (ISH) is an IB world school and a Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) Centre, which provides a co-educational and internationally acclaimed curriculum from Early Childhood where we offer the PYP curriculum through to Year 12 or 13 where students complete their AS/A levelse. ISH has a very special family feel that is so valued by all the children, parents and staff. Our school combines the best of South African tradition/education with an international outlook that aims to equip our children for the challenges of the future. The miracle of education is made a daily reality through which hundreds of pupils receive and broaden their knowledge but where each is seen as unique and individual. By choosing to entrust your son’s or daughter’s education to us, we believe that they will grow to be truly internationally minded, functional individuals with a balanced awareness of the world around them.
