Class of 2023 Online Yearbook

American high school students receive a Yearbook at the end of the school year, which serve as momento and compilation of photos taken throughout the year. It's common practice to write messages in each other's yearbooks to commemorate the past year. 

This year, ISSS has created an online yearbook for the graduating class of 2023. You may upload photos of yourself and write brief messages. Please consider signing our 2023 Online Yearbook!

*Yearbook submissions will be reviewed before being approved for posting.


Graduation Playlist

We’ll collect your song suggestions for graduation and/or celebratory songs from around the world and put them in a YouTube playlist. Have a song request? Email us at
