Studying International Politics and Peace and Conflict Studies at Juniata College.
ISD is an intricate and engaging community of cultures, perspectives and people. It embraces balance across all dimensions from academics to sports to STEM and consists of individuals that are immensely supportive.
I will miss the astounding personalized care and attention of ISD displayed by the faculty, particularly Mr. Brown and Ms. Leinbach, and the continually growing and developing VEX Robotics program. ISD's robotics program, which I have had the pleasure of being a part of since its inception, serves as a community model for service and provides a new avenue of education and learning for students both at ISD and in Senegal as a whole.
As a student who attended ISD for five years I have witnessed the progression of ISD's academics from run of the mill secondary education to an up and coming International Baccalaureate school. ISD's IB Diploma Program has developed both in rigor and breadth, two realities that I have been especially grateful for. The rigor of the program develops learners who possess critical organizational skills, whilst the breadth allows for balanced learners able to pursue a multitude of interests and succeed.
