Message from the Director

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the International School of Siem Reap website, which we hope will provide an informative and attractive window to our teaching, philosophy and engagement activities. Whether you are looking at Nursery, Primary School or high school, finding the right educational community in Siem Reap can be an overwhelming process.

Our School was founded in 2007 with just a few dozen students in a rented House, and since building our first purpose-built 14 classroom school building in 2011 and another 32 classroom building in 2015, we are now in the process of building yet another better equipped campus of approximately 60 classrooms on a spacious 1.4 hectare site near the 2 present campuses.

ISSR Primary School teaches the British National Curriculum. Teachers use “Hamilton Trust” to support their own planning and ensure that all age related objectives are taught. Our Year 6 students sit for a series of assessments (SATs) produced by the British Department for Education (DfE) to provide a guide to their progress and placement prior to entering High School in year 7.

ISSR High School is accredited by the University of Cambridge International Examinations Board, and is the only school in Siem Reap teaching the full range of the British National Curriculum from Year 7 through to IGCSE Year 11 and on to “A-level” study in years 12 and 13, providing students with a qualification accepted by universities around the world.

Throughout the rich diversity of our school we strive to impart the values our students will need for their adult lives, instilling in them tolerance, dignity and respect for others. Our aim is to ensure that our students act both responsibly and independently, whether at school or in the community outside.

We hope that you will find all the information you need on the website, but if not do not hesitate to get in contact with us and we will be happy to direct you to the appropriate person or information source. Please note that we are in the process of updating and redesigning our site, hence you will almost certainly find improvements and changes on every visit.

Yours sincerely,

Phallin Chhun,
