“When roots are deep, there is no need to fear the wind”

At the International African School, we offer a diverse range of enriching opportunities for growth and learning. Our offerings include masterclasses on various subjects, such as decolonization of the mind, self-discovery with “Know thyself,” discussions on biasness, fostering critical thinking skills, exploring African epistemology, diving into the depths of African Knowledge and Spirituality, and unraveling the tapestry of African history. Join us on a journey of discovery and empowerment at the International African School. We look forward to welcoming you!
