Don’t just take our word for it Discover what our teens have to say about their experience

I appreciated the philosophy of the school that every person is an individual with their own strengths. Spending time with other teenagers, meeting people from different countries, all the activities…I felt I did 'something'.
Emma Switzerland
ISSFT gave my daughter an excellent chance to explore new interests with supportive teachers and counsellors on an absolutely beautiful campus. She made lots of new friends and came home with wonderful memories. ISSFT was truly the highlight of her year!
