International School Community's goal is to be the largest online community for international schools educators. The site provides a useful, informative and celebratory environment for networking with other international school teachers and learning about different international schools around the world.
We wanted to create a website that would highlight the ins and outs of the international school educator profession and working at international schools (the benefits, the school itself, the city and travel information, etc.). Most of us got into this field because we strive to explore and experience different parts of the world firsthand. However, we also got into this field for a multitude of other reasons: career, money, love, etc.
Another major goal for this website is to provide experienced teachers the platform to share what they know so that prospective and seasoned international school teachers can make more informed decisions as they venture out to a new international school. Making connections and gathering information about international schools in our community has never been easier! Whether you are looking to make new friends, network with other international school teachers or learn more about the wonderful world of teaching at international schools, International School Community is the place to be.
We want members to provide real information that is real specific; information that is related to all the different topics we need to know about before signing a contract. Many websites out there right now usually only give vague bits of information at best. The bits of good information that are on those sites are also poorly organized. International School Community offers more up-to-date information in a highly organized, easy-to-use manner.
You can search our vast collection of international school profile pages to find that specific international school you want to know about. You can also search our member profiles and find a contact to send a private message to get firsthand information about a school that member has worked at. We also offer a vast amount of information and links related to the world of teaching at international schools and education in general via our blog.While the focus of the site is to serve the international school teaching community by providing real and useful information about international schools, we have specifically organized our website to promote our members to leave comments and information that are useful for everyone. No more sole reviews that are based on one person's negative experience. This is not our practice and it is something we strongly disagree with. Enjoy being an active member on this website and help yourself and others to continue on in the "international school community."
We strive to have the largest collection of resources and services for the international teaching community. International School Community really wants to take writing reviews and comments about international schools to the next level. So, give us a chance! If you really have an interest in what this community has to offer, we promise you will not be disappointed with us!!
At International School Community there is no reason to be anonymous. We want you to be searchable so that you and other members can network with each other. Putting a real face of yourself and using your real name will help you do just that. Sometimes it is all about who you know in the "international school community". As you add contacts to your member profile, you will be able to see your network of connections grow. When you visit school profile pages, you will see all the members that currently work there as well as other members whom have worked there in the past. Finally, your name will never be posted with your any of your submitted comments on school profile pages.
It will always be free to sign up and become a basic member, which will give you access to more pages than a non-member. There is a subscription fee to become a premium member, which gives you access to ALL pages. You can check out why a basic members would want to become a premium member here.
Throughout the year there will be a variety of promotional discounts and incentive offers being sent to all our members to get either free or discounted premium members subscriptions.
There are indeed a few other review and comment-based websites currently on the internet helping out international school educators gather information about international schools around the world. However, International School Community is trying to take it to the next level.
These 5 things are just a few of what makes International School Community different from what's currently out there. And guess what? We have plans to add more features and functions that will make being a member even more beneficial.
