Introduction to ISP

ISP offers a student-centred environment for its diverse community of over 60 nationalities, from early childhood (age 2 years and 6 months) to young adulthood (age 18). An innovative, future-focused school we continually evolve our programs and practices to prepare our students to adapt and contribute responsibly to an ever-changing world.

As a nonprofit independent school, ISP prides itself in investing in the best possible faculty and staff from throughout the world.

ISP faculty and staff are drawn from around 20 nationalities. Around three quarters of faculty are citizens of the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.


ISP students experience a positive and supportive atmosphere, a dedicated and professional faculty and staff, including an in-house Psychologist & Wellbeing Coordinator, and an active and supportive School Community Association (parent volunteer group).


Learning to lead healthy, fulfilling and purposeful lives, our students benefit from a single, purpose-built campus. Learners are actively learning in flexible, light-filled spaces.

Students also take advantage of ISP’s location next to the beautiful Divoká Šárka nature reserve, where learning takes place outdoors.


ISP is accredited by the Commission on International Education, one of three commissions of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC-CIE). In ISP’s most recent accreditation process (2017), a report published in early 2018 stated:

“The Evaluation Team is unanimous in observing and confirming that the International School of Prague is mission-driven, student-focused, future-leaning, progressive on many levels, high performing and a safe, secure place for learning.”

ISP chose to capture a significant portion of the self-study evidence for the accreditation process through learning stories. A brief overview of our unique approach can be found in this publication, Selected Learning Stories, which gives snapshots of the types of learning stories that take place at ISP every day. A number of quotes from the last accreditation team visit and report are shown below.

“Teachers throughout the school speak passionately about the importance of global citizenship…the international community and the different backgrounds it attracts are not only embraced by the students and administration, but also a point of pride and one of the essential fibers of the ISP”
