"My son has been to ISSOS twice and both times has come back from ISSOS full of life, very happy and his conversations taking on a more mature outlook. The various structured activities and the chance to make friends from different parts of the world was a wonderful opportunity for him. The independence he was afforded in a secure environment was a boost to his self-development. The interest ISSOS staff took in the students as individuals was evident when he relayed his experiences."
