Service Learning

At ISP believe that education is a life-long adventure. That adventure takes our students beyond classroom walls and into the community for service so that we can learn by looking after each other.

 

Service learning provides our students with many opportunities to bring authenticity to the curriculum content by responding to actual needs in the community. Students improve their academic skills by applying what they learn in school to the real world; they then reflect on their experience to reinforce the link between their service and their learning.
