Five Reasons #thereisnoplacelikeisp
It’s not about me. It’s about us. People at the International School of Panama are family, so we always help each other out. You might not know every kid by name, but you still act as if they are family. And, like any family unit, it’s not about each person being the same, it’s about us all being on the same page.
We look after the planet as well as we look after each other. Every day, we look for ways to eliminate waste and use our resources more effectively. We try to make sure that the mark we leave on our school, and our planet is a positive one, and work to help others in our country to do the same.
Learning is a lifelong adventure. We can’t learn everything, but it’s fun trying. At our school, we really enjoy exploring different ways to learn new stuff in and out of the classroom. If learning is to be lifelong, then school is the place where everyone learns to take charge of their own learning.
Find ways to stand out. That’s how we become outstanding. School would be boring if everyone was the same. But what makes you different from anyone else isn’t your fingerprint, it’s your character. We put all our energies into nurturing each and every individual in our school.
We have a pioneering spirit. Every person at our school leaves a footprint. We’re standing on the shoulders of giants. Today’s ISP is built on the work of the pioneering people who came before us. Tomorrow’s ISP will build on the shoulders of those who are here now. We never stop experimenting, creating the kind of school that others want to follow.
