Six Decades of Excellence:
International School of Lusaka Celebrates 60 Years of Inspiring Education.
In the heart of Lusaka, Zambia’s capital city, a beacon of educational excellence has shone brightly for the past six decades. The International School of Lusaka (ISL) is celebrating its 60th anniversary, a milestone that not only marks the passage of time but also signifies a legacy of providing top-tier education in the region.
In 1963, a group of visionary educators and community leaders united to establish ISL with a clear mission: to provide an international-standard education that would prepare students for a rapidly changing world. From its humble beginnings, ISL quickly gained a reputation for academic excellence and a commitment to fostering global citizenship.
One of ISL’s defining features has always been its diverse student body. Students from a multitude of nationalities and backgrounds come together within its walls, creating a vibrant and multicultural learning environment. This diversity has consistently enriched classroom discussions and broadened students’ horizons, helping them develop a deeper understanding of the world around them.
Over the years, the school has continuously adapted to meet the evolving needs of its students. From introducing internationally recognised curricula to embracing technology in the classroom, ISL has remained at the forefront of educational innovation.
A school is only as strong as its educators, and ISL has been fortunate to attract and retain a dedicated and passionate team of teachers, both local and international, who ensure that the needs of the students are met.
The true measure of a school’s impact lies in the success of its alumni, and ISL boasts an impressive roster of graduates who have gone on to achieve greatness in various fields. ISL alumni have made their mark on the world, from business leaders to artists, from diplomats to educators.
Beyond its academic achievements, ISL is committed to giving back to the community. Over the years, the school has initiated numerous outreach programs, volunteer activities, and partnerships with local organisations. These efforts instil a sense of responsibility and empathy in students, reinforcing the values of global citizenship.
As ISL marks its 60th anniversary, it does so with an eye firmly fixed on the future. Expansion plans, further enhancements to the curriculum, and a continued commitment to excellence are all part of the school’s vision for the next generation of students.
The International School of Lusaka has been a pillar of educational excellence in Zambia for six decades. Its journey has been one of growth, adaptability, and unwavering dedication to nurturing young minds and fostering global citizens. As ISL looks ahead to its next chapter, it does so with the knowledge that its legacy of excellence will continue to shine brightly, lighting the way for future generations. Happy 60th anniversary, ISL, and here’s to many more years of educational greatness!
