The ISLA Academy team is comprised of internationally certified, experienced teachers from eight different countries. A unique offering to the private, international schools of the Dominican Republic, ISLA Academy is the only institution that offers an exclusively inquiry-based method of learning. Inquiry-based learning ensures that students are prepared for a global society and encourages them to be active participants in their own education.
ISLA Academy aims to inspire children to question and explore the world around them. They are a green organization and with all of their actions, hope to inspire responsibility towards the protection of the Earth. Academic programs are progressive and student-driven. Each child is valued for his or her individuality and is encouraged to find his or her own gifts and talents. Students will learn to work with others and to appreciate the gifts of their own rich cultures. ISLA Academy values “learning by doing” and play and exploration are not only allowed, but encouraged. ISLA students are citizens of the world, with visions toward the future.
ISLA Academy’s administrative staff and team of educators have built and taught in internationally accredited schools in the Dominican Republic, United States, Puerto Rico, Tanzania, South Korea, China, and Vietnam. They know what world-class education looks like and what it takes for your child to be prepared to compete on an international standard of excellence.
