Hear from our parents and students

ISHCMC is a big part of my social life. The school door is always open, that’s the feeling ISHCMC gives you. You can talk with the school principal anytime, or even the Head of School. They stop by in the hall to talk with you. They spend time with you. If you feel like you need the school to be there for you as a parent, ISHCMC is there for you.

It’s very beneficial for my daughter in terms of building up skills, like speaking skills, writing skills, and reading skills. There’s a lot of choices in secondary. And then students have to choose by themselves. What I am, Who am I, What I like,…  my daughter loves that and she is willing to learn more.

ISHCMC Alumni Hippo

The connections you make at ISHCMC guide you far into the future. Even after graduation, the sense of belonging and connection to the school remains strong. The network has opened doors to incredible opportunities, from professional connections to lifelong friendships.



I think having co-curricular activities are fun because you can learn outside of school and make new friends. Also, because having after school activities allows me to do what I want to do.
