ISB Students Lending a Hand

In addition to academics, service is a large part of the learning that happens every day at International School Basel. Being located in Basel, Switzerland offers our students and staff wonderful opportunities to get involved in the local community and learn the language.

A recent project spearheaded by two ISB Senior School students, EnYu and Liv, showcased both service and language acquisition in an effort to connect with the local community. Read more about how the project resulted in over thirty Grade 11 students volunteering at the local Coop Gartenstadt interacting and helping local customers.

Looking Back - Interview with Lloyd Hacker, Teacher

Lloyd Hacker has started his 30th year at the ISB and a lot has changed in his time here.
