Mr. Angelo Coskinas
Mr. Angelo Coskinas joined ISB as the Upper School Principal in August 2014.
Prior to ISB, Angelo was the High School Vice-Principal of United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA), Singapore. During his time at UWCSEA he was also an Upper School English teacher, deputy head of department and head of grade. Prior to UWCSEA, Angelo also taught in the Singapore national system and Australia.
With his two children completing the IB Diploma it was decided that the time was right for a new setting and experience. Angelo indicates that Serbia’s rich cultural history, and the school’s warm hospitality, made the decision to join ISB quite straightforward.
Angelo obtained his degree (specializing in English and history), and teaching diploma from the University of NSW, Australia, and his Master of Science (Educational Leadership) from Walden University, USA. He is presently pursuing his doctorate.
Angelo’s passions are running, cycling, volleyball and touch football, though his failing body indicates that a good book and a comfortable old rocking chair are likely to be the new passions in the not too distant future.
