Welcome to The International School of Moscow (ISM), a hub for the international community in the region.

At ISM, we combine the highest British educational standards with exceptional personalised care and support, which sees our students thrive both while they're with us and long into the future. Our world-class teachers ensure that each child fulfils their potential and becomes a well-rounded individual, equipped to succeed in the ever-changing world around us.


Through highly enjoyable and engaging learning experiences, our students acquire the skills and knowledge set out in the renowned English National Curriculum. Really importantly, they also develop as individuals through a broad range of co-curricular and enrichment activities. 


We're extremely proud to be a member of the Nord Anglia Education family of premium international schools. Our students benefit from wonderful, bespoke collaborations with world-leading institutions such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, UNICEF, and The Juilliard School. Nord Anglia’s Global Campus platform also brings our students together with peers across 32 countries worldwide.


Most of our exceptional teachers are either qualified in the United Kingdom or have experience of working in UK schools. All our teachers receive the very best training to ensure our standards are always high. State-of-the-art technologies are integrated into our curriculum and classrooms, too, ensuring our learners develop the skills they need for the future.


As well as academic progress, your child will develop into a responsible global citizen, guided by our school’s principles of honesty, integrity, tolerance, and respect for others. Students are encouraged to be inquisitive and play a part in their own development, as well as being challenged and given the opportunity to discover their abilities. We work hard to create an environment where children enjoy learning and feel safe and confident to participate, make mistakes, and have fun. Ultimately, our aim is to make sure our students are exceptionally well-prepared for university life, life-long learning, and an exciting career. 


I encourage you to come and visit our campuses. We're very proud of our school’s warm, welcoming atmosphere, and would be extremely pleased to share the achievements of our school and students with you. For more information or to arrange a tour, please contact our Admissions Team.

Very best wishes,


Chris Charlton
