The IESA Way

Over 10+ years period, our demonstrated efforts toward quality education led to Five (5) International Awards.

A vision that germinated in 2007 and was generously nurtured by parents from 40+ nationalities, a qualified team of 120 dedicated teaching, administrative and support staff. IESA has ample achievements to its credit in this 13+ year long journey of commitment to Excellence.

  • Angola -
    The port town of Namibe has a unique combination of beach and desert. It offers the best access to Arco Lagoon, as well as certain parts of Iona National Park. Within the city are beautiful fortresses and old churches. The town is a good place to visit if you want a glimpse into the lives of the Mucubais tribe people.
  • Armenia -
    Armenia is one of the oldest countries in the world and the first to adopt Christianity. It boasted the oldest church in the world; The Echmiadzin Cathedral constructed between 301 and 303 in the city of Vagharshapat.
  • Bangladesh -
    Bangladesh has six seasons instead of four. It has grismo (summer), barsha (rainy season), sharat (autumn), hemanto (cool season), sheet (winter), and bashonto (spring). The Bay of Bengal, bounded by India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Maldives, and Sri Lanka, is the biggest bay in the world. Its national animal is the Royal bengal tiger. It has a roar that can be heard up to 3 km away. Almost half of the Bangladeshi population (45%) are farmers. Farming makes up 18% of the nation’s GDP.
  • Benin -
    The current flag of Benin was the one adopted by the Republic of Dahomey to replace the French colour. The flag’s colours carry significance with the yellow for the northern savannas, the green for the palm groves and the red in memory of those who shed their blood for Dahomey. Although the country strived for independence from France, they French influence is still pretty strong. The official language itself is French, they celebrate crucial French holidays and even sing the national anthem in French.
  • Brazil -
    “Brazil! La La La La La La La La La La La La La La La La!”, okay I’m sorry but those lyrics really are the first thing that I think of when I hear the name Brazil. A large part of my childhood involved parties wherein this song would be played. My mind is still humming the lyrics. But but Brazil is best known not just for the Venga Boys hit song but for the football stars it has produced. Also, for Amazon, not prime but THE forest and river as well as one of the 7 wonders of the world! Quite the popular vacation destination, there’s a lot more to learn about Brazil.
  • Burkina Faso -
    Did you know?? The Republic of Upper Volta was renamed “Burkina Faso” on 4 August 1984 by then-President Thomas Sankara. The words “Burkina” and “Faso” both stem from different languages spoken in the country: “Burkina” comes from Mossi and means “honest” or “honest people”, while “Faso” comes from the Dyula language and means “fatherland” (lit. “father’s house”).
  • Cameroon -
    In Cameroon, there are more than 1700 different linguistic groups in the country. And 230 other languages are spoken in the region apart from its official languages – French and English.

  • China -
    The New Year in China and the European or American New Year is not being celebrated on the same date. The first day of the year falls on the new moon between January 21 and February 20, so it differs from year to year. Secondly, this celebration is ongoing for 15 days instead of just 1 that westerners celebrate the new year. Definitely one of the many interesting facts about China!
  • Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) -
    A plus to boasting the world biggest church and having its own St Paul Cathedral, Cote d’Ivoire’s Tai National Park is an ancient forest and home to the pygmy hippopotamus. It is one of the last remaining areas of virgin rainforest in West Africa. You’ll see trees up to 50m high, with massive trunks and huge supporting roots. Walking through a primary forest is a unique experience: the towering trees, hanging lianas, swift streams and resident wildlife combine to create a peaceful and enchanting environment.
  • Democratic Republic of Congo -
    The Democratic Republic of the Congo, also known as DR Congo, DRC, DROC, RDC, Congo-Kinshasa, or simply Congo is a country located in Central Africa. From its huge swaths of rainforest to its widely varying cultures and peculiar culinary preferences, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) surprises travellers at every turn making it the ultimate African adventure.
  • Egypt -
    This should be interesting to know that the Great Pyramid was not built by slaves. Many people believe that slaves were brought in to construct the pyramid. However, archaeological evidence indicates that the Great Pyramid was in fact built by a workforce of 5,000 permanent, salaried employees and up to 20,000 temporary workers. These workers were free men, they were housed in a temporary camp near the pyramid, where they received payment in the form of food, drink, medical attention and, for those who died on duty, burial in the nearby cemetery.
  • Eritrea -
    Eritrea is a multilingual country. The nation has no official language, as the Constitution establishes the “equality of all Eritrean languages”. The main languages spoken in Eritrea are Tigrinya, Tigre and Standard Arabic.The national parks of Eritrea are some of the best places for indulging in the natural beauty of Africa. The Dahlak Marine National Park and the Semenawi Bahri National Park are the two declared national parks and this apart the three reserved forest areas in Eritrea. These are Yob, Gash-Setit and the Nafka.
  • France -
    If you’re in France on 1 April, don’t be surprised if children try to stick paper fish to your back and call you a ‘Poisson d’Avril’ (April Fish). This tradition is supposed to have started in the 16th century when King Charles XIV of France changed the calendar and those who continued to celebrate the end of the New Year at the end of March were ridiculed as fools.
  • Gabon -
    Gabon is the country where those who are reluctant to vote may be punished. Since voting is compulsory, those who dare to refrain from it may have to pay a huge fine later.
  • Gambia -
    Gambia is the smallest country on the continent of Africa. The country is 113 miles wide and the length is roughly 37.23 miles. The people of Gambia believe that crocodiles have a magic power.

Also known as the “devil’s tongue”, it was originally discovered in 1878 in the rainforest of central Sumatra island, by the Italian botanist and explorer Dr Oroardo Beccari.
  • Iran -
    Did you know that “Iran” translated into Persian means “Land of the Aryans”? The Iranian people originally used the term “Aryan” as an ethnic label, but the definition was then used as a cultural, religious, and linguistic reference when describing the people of Iran. Talking about definitions, Tehran, the capital of Iran, means “Warm Slope.” It makes sense, as the weather in Tehran can be unpredictably harsh, with a record high of 109 degrees Fahrenheit (43 degrees Celsius).
  • Kenya -
    Interestingly, Kenya could possibly be the birthplace of humans. This assumption is supported by the fact that the bones of one of the earliest human ancestors ever found were discovered in Kenya. so If you meet a local Kenyan and want to greet , just say Jambo! It’s the most common greeting and is similar to the English hello.
  • Lebanon -
    Mount Lebanon is a mountain range in Lebanon which averages above 2500 m in elevation. The name of the country, in fact, comes from this mountain range.

  • Libya -
    Ghadames– a real Saharan jewel of an ancient city. White-washed walls and covered streets keep things nice and cool as you explore the rooftops and alleys in this architecturally, fascinating town. Most of the residents have left the old town, but return during the hot summer months to their original homes. Make sure to get a guide, unless you enjoy getting lost. A festival in September is worth planning a trip around.
  • Mauritius -

  • Nigeria -
    Meet the multi-ethnic group country as in Nigeria there is as many different languages spoken as 250. This totally makes sense when you realize that there are over 250 ethnic groups with a distinct culture and traditions.

    The national drink of Pakistan is Sugarcane juice, called "roh" the juice is usually only sold by roadside vendors throughout the country.
  • Philippines -

  • Saudi Arabia -
    Saudi Arabia is mostly a desert. Ninety-five percent of the country is classified as a desert or semi-desert. The Rub Al-Khali, in the southern part of the country, is the largest sand desert in the world.

  • Togo -
    Located in West Africa, Togo is an interesting country with unique traditions and cultures. Even though they had a complicated political situation for almost half of the 20th century, they have overcome these circumstances and enjoy a stable condition today. Voodoo is the oldest traditional form of African religion in West Africa, to which Togo and Benin are its heartlands. So, don’t be surprised if you find yourself on a Voodoo market. There are many of them, and they are well visited.
  • Uganda -
    By law, vehicles are supposed to drive on the left hand side of the road in Uganda. One would, however advise you to be careful as foreign motorists who have travelled on Ugandan road advise that Ugandans do not heed to this rule.
