International School of Western Australia
The ISWA school community plays a particularly important role in the lives of students and their families. When families arrive in Perth from overseas they often don't know anybody. An inclusive, welcoming school community and active Parent Association have numerous strategies in place to ensure newcomers are welcomed and settle quickly and happily in to their new Perth lifestyle. This welcome is not exclusive to our international families. Due to the egalitarian, open-minded and progressive nature of the school community, local students who did not fit into their mainstream or elite Perth school structure find their place here at ISWA: often for the first time ever in a school environment, they find they belong.
The family atmosphere of our campus is enhanced by our co-educational K-12 campus, where vertical age interactions are facilitated and encouraged. The 'connectedness' between primary, middle and secondary school, between staff and pupils, school and parents' is at the core of our holistic approach to education
