What a magical trip!
It was a pleasure to be invited into the fantastic International School of Iceland (a private, non-profit school in Garðabær on the outskirts of Reykjavík). It is actually the only international school in the Reykjavík area of Iceland, first established in 1960 as the American Embassy School.
From the moment I arrived, it was clear to see that the school encourages independence among the students, who are trusted to move around their school with such confidence and maturity. The interdisciplinary 'STEAM' curriculum at ISI is evident in the project work on display, which incorporates all kinds of skills that result in a highly engaging learning experience.
Did you know?
There are over 10,000 waterfalls in Iceland, and they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Iceland's climate and location is well-suited to waterfalls due to the frequent rain and snow, combined with the array of glaciers that melt in summer.
