Teaching approach of the school

Elementary School:
ISP helps its students to develop a sense of themselves as lifelong learners and problem solvers. To do this, students must acquire skills in reading, writing, math and critical thinking. They must also be armed with the ability to become skillful decision-makers and responsible citizens in a global community. The diversity of our many cultures is a strength that the school uses to make ISP an exceptional educational environment that supports this development.

Middle School:
The Middle School program has been especially designed to meet the needs, talents and interests of the young adolescent. ISP believes that the middle school years can be the most productive and exciting of all, despite the stresses of physical change and the uncertainties of identity-formation associated with the age group. Thus, ISP tries to capitalize on the energy, enthusiasm and natural curiosity of emerging adolescents while, at the same time, providing the guidance and structure they need to deepen their knowledge and understanding and to enable them to take increasing responsibility for their own learning.

Upper School:
The Upper School is designed to prepare students for post-secondary education in colleges and universities throughout the world. Students earn the ISP diploma by acquiring the requisite number of credits in various curriculum areas, described in the Program of Studies, and may also opt to pursue the International Baccalaureate diploma. A full host of academic and elective courses offer students a most challenging program while also allowing them opportunities to stretch themselves by exploring interests in a variety of special areas.
