Dear QSIS Community,

Hello Wolfpack members! My name is Natalie Barboza, and I’m thrilled to join the staff of QSI Sarajevo as the new Director. I look forward to partnering with you to continue to provide our students with a rigorous and engaging school experience.

Quality Schools International Sarajevo is among QSI’s top schools in the QSI organization. QSIS’ position has not occurred by accident. It has been through the hard work, devotion, and partnerships that have existed between school staff, parents, community members, and the most critical stakeholders, the student body. I am grateful for the opportunity to be passed the baton from Jamie Martin and to continue forward in the vision for QSIS.

As the Director of QSIS, I believe that we are all partners and share a common goal: to provide a safe, happy and thriving learning experience for each of our students.

Please note my door is always open, and I welcome your input. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas to share.  I look forward to a successful 2019-2020 school year and joining the QSIS Wolfpack!


Mrs. Natalie Barboza, Director
