PHNOM Penh will soon have two international schools. The International School Cambodia
(ISC) at Northbridge Estates will open for enrollment in Aug, announced John Killeen,
President of Northbridge Communities Jan 16.
Meanwhile, the International School of Phnom Penh (ISPP) recently expanded to serve
David Eaton, ISC's superintendent, expects substantial growth in the economy to warrant
a second international school.
ISC will offer an American-style curriculum for 3-year olds through high school.
Over the next few years, the school plans to develop a comprehensive grade 9-12 program
and eventually implement the International Baccalaureate diploma.
Tuition will vary according to the student's grade, with average costs at $6,500,
said Dr Robert Brewitt, Director of Education.
Brewitt expects that 85-100 students will enroll in the first year. The school will
not limit the eligibility of students based on nationality, unlike some international
Since Southeast Asian countries are the largest foreign investors in Cambodia, Asian
nationals will most likely comprise the bulk of the enrollment, Dr Brewitt said.
Located in Northbridge Estates, an 18-acre area roughly 6 km from the city center
near Pochentong airport, ISC is being constructed in several phases. Upon completion,
the school will be able to serve 800 students.
The school will offer a Library-Media center, science labs, computer labs, sports
facilities, and a cafeteria-auditorium. In later stages of construction, residential,
recreational, medical, and commercial facilities will complement the school.
