Our History

The International School of Orange County is the Orange County campus of the International School of Los Angeles which was established in 1978 by visionaries of varied cultural backgrounds who felt that the greater Los Angeles community needed a school which would prepare children for life in an increasingly international environment.


Because the majority of the founders had French backgrounds, they chose the proven French educational system as the foundation for our curriculum. Since its inception our school has continually evolved.


We’ve grown out of the very first campus – a small house in Van Nuys with seven students – to five formal campuses with over 1,000 students.


The International School of Los Angeles has earned an esteemed reputation with the placement of graduates in top universities all over the world
