International School Palermo is officially a “foreign school” operating in Italy that develops and promotes an international study programme. English is the main language in view of the final exam; Italian remains an integral part of the programme as it is the main language spoken by ISP's students (every mother tongue is important for an international education ).

ISP focuses on the development of all aspects of the child’s personality (spiritual, physical, emotional, social, cognitive and linguistic), instilling in each a love of learning. Its aim, in line with IB philosophy, is to move students toward becoming principled, caring and open-minded individuals and life-long learners, who will help to create a better and more peaceful world.
