Working at ISU
The International School of Ulaanbaatar is a non-profit, PreK-G12, English-language, international school. We are Mongolia's only IB Continuum school, offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the Diploma Programme (DP). We are also a founding member of ACAMIS, and also an active member of EARCOS.
ISU teachers are fully committed to our Vision and Mission. They teach the whole child, understanding that academic success is inextricably interwoven with healthy social and personal development. Our teachers typically come to us as seasoned practitioners. These people are true colleagues among their peers, collaborating with them for the success of all students, and using inclusion models to meet their varied linguistic (EAL), interpersonal and academic needs. ISU teachers engender excellent relationships with all constituents, they are inspiring in their practice and they are open to continuously improving their pedagogy. They also subscribe to the belief that technology is a tool that should be effectively integrated into classroom practice.

ISU provides some of the best spaces that I have ever worked in as an educator. In the department, we are very well resourced with learning materials and furniture that easily enable practical and collaborative learning opportunities.

I am happy to be a part of the ISU community. Because it is a small school, I have been able to get to know everyone at some level. Professionally, I appreciate the small class sizes. The students are respectful and friendly.

My first impressions, and a lasting one at that, of ISU is that it is one big family of very friendly people who are always willing and ready to lend a helping hand. From helping with translations, to inviting me home during festivities.

The school is small in numbers and despite the inability the past few years to hold major school events or gatherings, there is still a community and family atmosphere within the school.
Employee Screening & Child Protection
ISU is committed to the well-being of its students. We use safe recruitment practices for the purposes of child protection – we verify the identity, the credentials and the work and criminal histories of all prospective employees.
