International Schools Consortium

International Schools Consortium (iSC) is a nonprofit organization that, since 1986, has offered excellent academic programs to meet the intellectual, physical, and emotional needs of students. iSC has six schools in China — in Chengdu, Qingdao, Wuhan, Wuxi, Tianjin, and Yantai — one school in the UAE, and helps to support various other educational initiatives globally. iSC is a multi-school program, enabling students and teachers to participate in system-wide programs where they can interact with others outside of their immediate school. Students compete in basketball, volleyball and soccer tournaments, as well as music and choral festivals, and Model United Nations (MUN) conventions.

Rick McCarthy
Art Teacher

I grew up in the beautiful Northwest United States surrounded by mountains, trees and rivers. I love fishing and walking about the giant trees of the Oregon rain forest. My hometown, Portland, Oregon is a melting pot of diversity with people from all over the world. In school, I had great teachers and coaches that taught me how to be a positive impact on the culture around me. Because of these people, I wanted to become a teacher. In my ten years of teaching, I have been a Grade 5 teacher, Middle School Science teacher and a K-Grade 12 Art teacher, and now a Character Education teacher.
