School for children and loving parents

The creation of the International School Istochnik (ISI) was born from the development strategy of the Volga-Dnepr Group of Companies and is part of its corporate culture and social orientation of “business with a human face”. 

How to enrol into the school?

Education is the greatest of the earthly benefits if it is of the highest quality. Otherwise, it is useless.


Tell people – and they may forget… Show them – they may remember… but involve them and they will understand.


To reveal, nourish and cherish in each student their unique individual talent means to raise the personality to a high level of heyday of human dignity.


School is neither a building nor classrooms. School is a sublime spirit, a dream, an idea that fascinates three people at once: a teacher, a student and a parent.

The School’s History


The history of the school dates back to September 1, 2005 when corporate primary school "Istochnik" of the "Volga-Dnepr" airline was opened.
August 19, 2005 - ISI received the status of a licensed school for preschool and primary education.
The position of the "Istochnik" is to provide quality education, combining it with the system of additional education in the single school’s space.


June 2006 - The summer recreational and educational project "Summer Cottages" was implemented for the first time on the basis of the "Istochnik" school.
The ecology of the environment, the ecology of relationships, and the ecology of the individual are at the heart of “Summer cottages”.


A new school building was opened in Leninskii settlement, Zavolzhsky District, Ulyanovsk.  
School "Istochnik" is a modern House of Knowledge with developed infrastructure, in which single educational, educational and information space has been formed.


The school joined the Schools’ Association of the International Baccalaureate (IB) in CIS countries and received the status of "Associated School". It also became one of the 100 best schools in Russia.
"Istochnik" is a dynamically developing successful educational institution with an impeccable reputation and excellent quality of education.


The school was accredited in all educational programs, which allowed our pupils to ensure the continuity of the educational process.


The school received international accreditation under the Diploma Program of the International Baccalaureate - IB DP (certificate from 09.07.2014, Switzerland, Geneva) and the first one in the region began the implementation of this program - a unique two-year pre-university training course for students in grades 10 and 11, providing them the opportunity to continue education in international universities.

The school acquired the new status of "International School."


The first graduation of the Russian program took place. Graduates of 2015 became students of Ulyanovsk State University.

“Istochnik” celebrated the first anniversary - 10 years since the founding of the school.


Students studying in the IB DP passed the examination tests and became the first graduates of the International School “Istochnik” to graduate from the school with two diplomas: a Russian certificate of secondary education and a diploma of the International Baccalaureate. According to the results of the examination session, the graduates were offered admission to foreign universities (University of Kent, University of Edinburgh, Greenwich University). The choice of the students was University of Edinburgh, MSIIR, and the Federal University of Kazan.


The school participated in IB international conferences (Moscow (Russia), Barcelona (Spain), Orlando (USA)) aimed at professional communication and exchange of the best practices in the field of international education.


International School “Istochnik” is 15 years old. A prestigious educational institution with its own traditions, educational technologies, unique methods and eventful life has grown from a small suburban primary school.
