Not long after the outset of the school year, Upper School students at ISP are given the opportunity to spread their wings beyond the confines of the campus. During Week Without Walls students spent important learning time in new environments while building relationships with their fellow Upper School students.
The programs have been built around opportunities to develop lifelong skills, be involved in a service opportunity or to combine learning a useful skill with exploring an area. Students of grades 9 through 12 mix together and choose from a variety of activities within the Czech Republic and outside of the country. Week Without Walls is not a week without school, that means that attendance on these trips is mandatory for all students.
Students can choose from a vast range of learning opportunities in the Czech Republic and further afield. 2019/20 offerings are: The Arts of Florence (Italy), Into the Wild (Klet, Czech Republic), Cook Like a Chef (Prague, Czech Republic), ISP Cares: Active Local Service in Prague (Prague, Czech Republic), Discover Diving Italy (Santa Margherita, Italy), London: From Page to Stage (London, UK), Discovering Morocco (Morocco), Mind, Body & Muscle (Prague, Czech Republic), Edinburgh (Edinburgh, UK), Mountain Village Retreat (Bohemian Switzerland, Czech Republic), Experience Modern Art (Prague, Czech Republic), Explore Prague (Prague, Czech Republic), Farm2Table (Chrastice, Czech Republic), Happy Caravan Greece (Lamia, Greece), Portugal: Service Beyond SURFace (Lisbon area, Portugal), Hiking in the Italian Dolomites (Tre Cime, Italy), Puppets/Marionettes Making Workshop (Prague, Czech Republic), Safari in Tanzania (Tanzania), Sketchbook Venice (Venice, Italy), Wind and Water (Lipno, Czech Republic).
