    International School of Aruba (ISA)

    I'm curious to see if there are any ISA alumni on this forum. I attended ISA in the early 90's (elementary school). It would be great to reconnect with others who may have attended at the same time. I lived in the Colony, and my father moved us down in 1990 due to his position with Coastal (Coastal owned the refinery at the time, I believe). Just thought I would reach out

    my guess is that would put you in your early or mid 30s.
    were any of your friends aruban kids?
    do you remember the name of any of your teachers or school administrators?

    I am 35, so good guess! I honestly can't remember my teachers, but the headmaster was Mr. Trogisch (sp?). To be honest, I can't remember who was from the island itself. The school was such a melting pot of nationalities and cultures. During my time there several students stand out. Nina Arends, Michael Wilson, Michael Tauber, Sabrina Lacle, Boris Cybul, among others. I do remember one teacher... Mrs. Hodge, but I can't remember which grade.

    Arends and Lacle are common names in Aruba.

    start with facebook.
    see if the international school of aruba has a FB page and maybe an alumni section?
