Teaching and Learning at ISP:
ISP holds the prestigious IB World School status and is the first school in Paris fully authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme. As a member school of the IB global learning community, we share a common commitment to the goals and standards of the IB, which complement those of ISP.
The three programmes - PYP, MYP and DP - encourage students' academic advancement and promote their development as active and compassionate community members. The PYP Coordinator will work closely with the Whole School Learning Continuum Director, the Middle Years Programme Coordinator and the Diploma Programme Coordinator.
ISP holds accredited member status from two premier accreditation organisations: the Council of International Schools (CIS) in Europe and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) in the United States. This means that our School's philosophy, governance, curriculum, resources and staffing meet rigorous standards set by these international school organisations.
Learning Objectives - Educating for Complexity & The IB Learner Profile:
Educating for Complexity - We strongly promote an inquiry-based approach and we recognise the importance of a meaningful, relevant and engaging curriculum that connects students to real-world contexts for their learning. We are keenly aware of the need to adapt our teaching and learning model to respond to the needs of our students in a world of fast-paced change.
As a fully authorised IB World School, ISP follows the philosophy and guidelines laid out by the International Baccalaureate, including its commitment to international education. The IB learner profile runs across all three IB programmes and is central to the definition of what it means to be internationally-minded.
A Unique School / Three Campuses
ISP is quite unique as one school but with three campuses. A Primary School site, a Middle School (Grade 6 to 9) site and a High School (Grade 10 to 12) site. This provides opportunities for a tailored delivery of the three IB programmes. The campuses are all approximately ten minutes walking distance from each other. At the same time, this also creates some unique management, organisational, logistical and programme continuity complexities.
