The International School, Ibadan was founded by German-British educator Kurt Hahn on 13 October 1963 with funding received from the USAID, Ford Foundation, and donation of land by the then Nigerian Western Regional government.
Most of the pioneer teaching staff were British expatriate educators from Gordonstoun in Scotland. The school is a co-educational Boarding and Day School admitting pupils aged 10 to 16. It was primarily established to meet world-class educational standards for children of expatriates living and working in Nigeria. It opened its doors to pupils of both expatriates of diverse nationalities and highly placed Nigerians.
ISI is well known for socials, extra-curricular activities like its biennial international Soiree and Charity walk. The international soiree started as a celebration of all the nationalities represented among staff and students display the food, clothing, and other material aspects of culture for sale with the objective of raising money for the less privileged. The Charity walk is another event that students use to raise money for the less privileged. Service to mankind is embedded in the culture of ISI, and these traditions continue to this day.

our faith in these….ISI!”
