Upper School (Grade 9 - 12)
Through striving towards fulfilling the School's mission, the Upper School prepares students for post-secondary education in colleges and universities throughout the world.
Students earn the ISP diploma by acquiring the requisite number of credits in various curriculum areas (described in our Program of Studies), and may also pursue the International Baccalaureate diploma. A full host of academic and elective courses offer students a challenging program while also allowing them opportunities to stretch themselves by exploring interests in a variety of special areas.
The Upper School faculty are highly trained specialists, the majority of whom have Masters or higher degrees in their fields of expertise. Meeting the needs of individual students is recognized as a priority by the staff who place paramount importance on the development of social and academic skills. There tends to be a close student-teacher relationship, cited by many former students as what is most special about our school.
The Faculty of ISP constantly evaluate and refine the curriculum to ensure that it is well articulated and coordinated from grade level to grade level, so that students are well prepared to handle an increasingly rigorous course load.
