Alumni recount their fondest memories from their years at ISD. 


Amy Diack

Class of 2017

Plans to learn about animation.


Teachers [at ISD] have their own teacher coolness. I will miss making the art pieces and seeing pieces of others. ISD is tough but fair so that it could push me to the limit. The After School Activities were fun! I created my own after school activity (Cartoon Club!) 

Basia Diagne

ISD Teachers are committed and passionate and they care about each student.  

Agnes Dikoum

Class of 2017

[ISD's art program] was my way of escaping my academic worries but still be part of the Jaguars. I loved playing in other countries and representing the Jaguars. I loved being part of a different type of group than I am usually around in school all day. I loved sports.

Cydnee Mathis

Class of 2017

Studying psychology at the University of Arkansas.

I will miss working with my classmates to create amazing theatre productions and coming up with creative ideas. I learned that you shouldn't be afraid to try new thing and to have confidence in yourself that you will succeed. I learned that the lower grades do look up to the upper class-men and it is important that you interact with all grade levels because at the end of the day we all were their at some point and we can all use a little guidance and support.


I will miss my teammates and my coaches the most. I have been blessed to play with the majority of the same girls for the past three years and they have become my family. 

Stella Mutoni

Studying at Maastricht university in the Netherlands or University of Gdansk in Poland.

ISD teachers pushed you to get work done on time and made you feel like they cared about your success.

Luc Rulinda

Class of 2017

Studying Mechanical Engineering.

I will miss the teachers that actually cared for my life outside of school. I have learned a lot from the teachers academically. They also taught me that only my ambition and perseverance will get me where I want to be in life and not their help they provide in class. I have learned that the academic program is designed to make it hard for us to succeed. I will miss the camaraderie I developed in those activities. I will miss the coaches and the brotherhood I was able to develop in all my basketball teams.
