Parent Teacher Organisation

The International School Aberdeen’s Parent Teacher Organisation 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 organisation.

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 programmes and events throughout the year, we create strong connections throughout the ISA community.

Our “Buddy” family programme helps families adjust to life at ISA in addition 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@isa.aberdeen.sch.uk for more information.

The best way for your child to have a successful school year is to get involved. Our volunteer form in the PTO downloads section will introduce you to the various ways that you can get involved. For additional information reach out to your CEC or send an email to pto@isa.aberdeen.sch.uk and we will point you in the right direction.

All parents are invited to attend our monthly meetings. Check out the Thistle Talk for dates and times. Please note that these meetings will initially be held virtually for this school year. 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!
