At ISP we offer high quality education in an encouraging supportive environment that helps our students achieve excellence, reach their full potential and relate school experiences to real life. With a holistic, student centered and inquiry based approach our students develop globally relevant concepts, skills and positive attitudes which enable them to become active, creative and responsible members of the local and international community.
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
By offering the International Baccalaureate program our school is dedicated to creating citizens of the world. At ISP our learning reflects the real-world, building knowledge, skills and understandings that inspire our students to contribute responsibly to the world. We have a created an authentic learning environment that encourages our students to be curious, develop skills and intercultural understanding.
At ISP we believe in bilingual education as such we offer a Greek and English and programme. Research shows that because bilingual students can use two languages at the same time, switching consistently, it develops skills for functions such as inhibition, switching attention, and working memory. As such, students who are being educated bilingually, often perform better on tasks which require multi-tasking, decision making and problem solving.
we believe that investing time and resources in quality professional development is the key to building a strong learning environment for our students. Our teacher attend IB workshop as well as visiting other IB schools around the world each year. We also run weekly in-house workshops to all our teachers to create an ongoing learning and professional environment.
At ISP we offer regular workshops to all our parents, to develop a better understanding of how the IB works and how we educate our students. Workshops run all year round and have been a huge success.
Drop everything and play
Drop Everything and Play allows the parents of our youngest students to come a enjoy messy play during the month. As a school we recognize the importance of play to the development of all our students. Play allows our children to inquire into the world around us and make sense of it. It is vital for developing social skills, creative, physical and language development. This said it is not always easy to find the time and even know how to play with your child. Play sounds so simple but the truth is it is complex and how play is delivered has great impact on each child's development. Therefore our program is to encourage our parents to drop everything and come into class and play with their child.
