ISP has a mandatory uniform and dress code for all students. There are many positive reasons for a school dress code, including:
- A dress code encourages students to express their individuality through personality and academic achievements, not outward appearances
- Supporting positive behaviour and discipline

- Dress codes create a sense of school pride and belonging
- Being comfortable, smart and practical for a day’s activities being flexible enough to be suitable whatever the season or climate

This program helps children to experiment, to be creative and discover their talents. They will also develop their communicational and mathematic skills. As for the architecture part, it is a method which provides children with experiences and creativity and they finally believe in their selves and turn into the ‘architectures’ of their own future.

Here at ISP we want our students to understand that charity is not just for Christmas time, but the time for giving should be all year round. We all feel the need to help but we don’t always know how. That’s why it’s important to understand that even a small gesture can make a big difference for many people. We would also like our students to realize that charity can be about raising awareness which helps people take action by themselves. We regularly host charity events and take part in local community events, some of the charities we have supported are The Hellenic Red Cross, UNISEF Greece, The Bridge, Piraeus orphanage for boys, SOS villages and many more.
