Spotlight On Our Student Arda

This week, we spotlight our eighth-grader Arda, who joined ISR in Grade 3. Arda is a helpful student who has developed very positively during his time at ISR, as Supervisor Mr. Mohammed confirms. In addition, he is an energetic student, who is always interested in sharing experiences with his classmates and teachers. Arda is always smiling and has a great sense of humor. During his breaks, he loves playing volleyball at our beach volleyball court and enjoys his time with his classmates. His math teacher, Mr. Nisic, says about him, “I’m delighted that we put the spotlight on Arda, a remarkable student who shines in so many ways! Arda’s zest for learning and ability to connect with others make him an invaluable asset to our classroom community. He is usually one step ahead when it comes to learning new materials. But, beyond his great math skills, Arda’s vibrant personality and insatiable curiosity draw a crowd wherever he goes!”

Also, his teacher Mr. Lillywhite is fascinated by his love of learning. “Arda has a refreshing enthusiasm and love of learning that instills his classes with positivity. He is a diligent worker who often goes over and above the requirements for the class and shows the promise of a top-tier performer. His interest in academics and inquisitive personality make him a joy to teach and a positive force in the classroom.” Currently, Arda is in his last year of middle school. Ms. McLeod, head of the middle school at ISR, is also convinced that his success story will continue in the upper school. “I have had the pleasure of getting to know Arda during his four years in middle school. He has made momentous progress and development and has become a very mature young man. I am sure that he will find success in Upper School next year, as he has already formed the foundation of a hard-working & dedicated student.”

We are very proud to spotlight Arda, one of ISR’s many outstanding students!

Every Friday, our Student Spotlight Project aims to highlight one of our outstanding students who, in line with this year’s theme, is striving for “extraordinary achievements” on a daily basis. No matter if it is academic success, special commitment or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
