What our students say about us
What I liked most about this school is how everyone knows each other . It felt like we were one big family.
I cannot imagine what I would be without the wonderful education and teachers here at the International School of OC, the diversity, and the life-long friends I will always keep in touch with.(...) Being at this school has taught me so many virtues that I will keep with me forever, and has given me the best foundation in every subject. I couldn't be more grateful to have been sent to a school like the International School of OC.
I like how the teachers really care about your success and how some of the curricula are tailored to fit you, your needs, and your interests. The teachers can really pay attention to you since there are so little students, and they can make sure you do your best.
I like that the teachers have taught me not only good education but many lessons that I will hold on for life.
