PTO

Parent Teacher Association

The International School of Aberdeen’s Parent Teacher Organization consists of parent volunteers working to promote school spirit and close relationships with parents, faculty and students. Once your child has been enrolled at ISA, you become a part of our organization.

The PTO works closely with the ISA Administration to support our children’s education in several different ways. With help from parents, we raise funds to enrich classroom support, organize fun-filled family socials and encourage school spirit. By organizing these key programs and events throughout the year, we create a strong connection in the ISA community.

Our “Buddy” family program helps families adjust to living in Scotland, and provides a smooth transition into your new school. Please fill out the Buddy form or send an email to pto@isa247.org.uk for more information.

The best way for your child to have a successful school year is to get involved. Our volunteer form informs you of the various ways you can help. For additional information, contact our coordinator at ISAPTOVolCoord@gmail.com.

All parents are invited to attend our monthly meetings. Check out the Thistle Talk for dates and times. Please feel free to contact any member of the PTO if you have any questions or suggestions. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to your new community!
