About ISECS:

  • The vision of International Studies Elementary Charter School is to develop the whole child as an inquirer both in the classroom and in the world outside. The mission of International Studies Elementary Charter School is to develop high academic skill, an understanding of international ideas and cultural diversity, responsible citizenship, as well as critical and compassionate thinking.

    International Studies Elementary Charter School offers the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program. The IB/PYP program historically provides for increased student achievement through its rigorous academic instructional approaches and its organizational effectiveness. We focus on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside.  The program encourages international-mindedness, fosters a positive attitude toward learning, and reflects real life by encouraging learning beyond the traditional subjects while emphasizing physical, intellectual, emotional, and ethical growth. 

    We offer a variety of programs and strategies used to meet the needs of our children. The EIP teachers offer small group recovery strategies to students who are experiencing difficulties mastering reading and math skills. Our two computer labs offer research-based programs which are directly aligned with the Georgia Standards. We also offer Spanish language classes.

    International Studies Elementary Charter School is uniquely located near the Albany Marine Corps Logistics Base and has enjoyed a wholesome relationship with many organizations housed on base. Since parent involvement is one of the best indicators of a thriving school, our school we encourage parents to volunteer at least 18 hours per family each year. We pride ourselves in having an active PTO, and Local School Governance Team committed to excellence.
