Life at ISP

After School Activities

Life at ISP does not end when the bell rings. Approximately 70% of K-12 students at ISP stay after school to pursue their passions. 

Visual and Performing Arts

Through the study of visual and performing arts, we foster creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking skills, while enriching the overall human experience for every student, creating a vibrant nexus between our school and the global community. 

International Baccalaureate Program

Part of what makes the last years of learning at ISP unique is our student-centered approach to the IB. Following nearly 30 years of experience as an IB World School, we are confident in saying that a key to students reaching their full potential is choice. That's why we offer a full range of courses in the IB, more than most international schools with similar academic and IB programs.

Teaching & Learning

The Office of Teaching and Learning represents ISP's investment and commitment to our continued growth, support, and improvement. Our office is an inter-divisional group of educators who collaborate with teachers, staff, and administrators to ensure we are meeting ISP Strategic Plan’s academic excellence goal.

Early Childhood Center

What makes our ECC extra special is the focus on social-emotional learning, helping our little ones become a family of compassionate learners.  By offering multi-age groups, older children have the opportunity to serve as a mentor and begin planting the seeds of leadership.

ISP Gives Back

Service-learning is a fundamental part of student life. Through several initiatives, clubs activities, and organizations,  ISP students take initiative to make positive contributions as global citizens.
