ZIS Parents' Association

The ZIS Parents' Association welcomes you! 

The ZIS experience is not just for our students. There are also many ways for parents to get involved with school life. If you are looking for a fun way to meet people and want to enhance your family’s experience, the ZIS Parents’ Association is here to help!   

The main purpose of the Parents’ Association is to help build community while partnering with the school.  As new families arrive, we want you to get to know other ZIS community members, and to settle into life here.  

For already-established families, we want to keep you feeling connected through a variety of social events throughout the year.    

The Parents’ Association provides many community-building events throughout the year, which can be found on the Events (login required) page.  We also have an ever-expanding list of clubs and social events (login required) that can be joined.

Everyone is encouraged to participate in the Parents' Association, whatever your interests, cultural background and experience. We appreciate the diversity of our members and offer a wide variety of opportunities to get involved. If you are looking to get involved, see the section on volunteering (login required) or send an email to  

Further information is available for current parents within the Parents' Association section of the Community Portal.
