History of Ibadan International School

 

In September 2003, Ibadan International School (IIS) was established by the Zard foundation to fulfill the educational needs of both the local and expatriate communities in Ibadan. The school started with 23 students in 2003 and today has over 400 students from over 15 different nationalities. The school started with just 2 employees and today has over 90 employees. 

IIS provides a broad, international curriculum that enables its students to continue their education anywhere in the world, while preparing them to live in harmony with others. The Pre-school and Junior School sections of the school follow the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the school is an authorized IB World School (www.ibo.org). In the Senior School Section, the students follow the International Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) curriculum which has been developed by the University of Cambridge Examinations Board.

IIS is a co-educational day school that caters for children from age 6 months (Creche) to age 15 (year 4).

The Zard Foundation

 

The Zard family settled in the city of Ibadan in the early 1930’s and has grown and prospered with the city. The establishment of Ibadan International School by the Zard Foundation is one of the formal ways in which the family has acknowledged and demonstrated its commitment to the local community.
