International School to School Experience
Fostering Peace and Understanding


The International School-to-School Experience (ISSE) is a unique international program for schools that provides for the exchange of thoughts and ideas through face-to-face contact with children from other countries around the world. It is non-profit, non-political, and non-religious in nature.

The program gives all 10-12 year old school children the opportunity to experience and understand other cultures on a first-hand basis. It is an innovative approach for schools that realize the importance of international experience in modern school education.

I would always highly recommend the ISSE program for anyone with an open mind and who is not afraid of trying different food. Such experiences allow students to learn how to accept and learn about different people and their cultures and traditions. You will never regret going ahead with this experience of a lifetime.
