Join Us » PTA


The International School of Panama’s Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) extends a warm welcome to those families who are new to our school and a “welcome back” to all those returning. We are fortunate to have many exciting events for our families to enjoy throughout the school year. Our PTA and staff are always looking for ways to include our entire school community.
We Need You

To support the activities the PTA sponsors, we really need your help. Working together, we can truly make a difference at the school and in the lives of our children. Your involvement with the PTA will benefit everyone, but the greatest reward is seeing the smile on your child’s face when you are involved in his/her world. So please join us in making this a successful year!
