The International School of Luxembourg announced on Wednesday that its director Nicki Crush will retire at the 2020-21 school year end.
Crush, the first female director of ISL, took over the role from her successor, Chris Bowman, in 2014. By the time she retires, she will have worked at the school for 25 years, having joined the school in 1995 when it was based in Limpertsberg. At that time, there were 135 students in the upper school while at end-2018 the school counted over 1,300.
In an Delano interview upon her taking on the role, Crush promised to bring the school “to the next level”, adding: “We’re fortunate to have a very dedicated group of teachers who really care and who work on this every day. It’s all about more and better learning.”
Members of the ISL community, including Crush’s former students, took to social media following the announcement, sending notes of appreciation for her a dedicated, inspiring educator. ISL today has a student body of some 40 nationalities.
