Apply to ISP

In order to apply to The International School of Panama, please complete our Application for Admission and Institutional Fee Declaration Form.

Parents should request an official report card complete with grades and comments from their child’s current school. Although digital or copies may be used for admission purposes, ISP requires official documents.

The Ministry of Education of Panama (MEDUCA) requires that all students entering 2nd through 12th grade who transfer from a school abroad go through a validating process. All transcripts issued outside of Panama must be authenticated (apostilled) by the authorities in the country that issued the records, to later be validated through MEDUCA. This procedure is a requirement to officially enroll the student into ISP.
