The ISP Middle School program inspires, engages and empowers young people at this pivotal stage of their development.
Our Middle School represents Grades 6 through 8 (ages 11-14). We encourage the energy, enthusiasm and natural curiosity of emerging adolescence, while providing the guidance and structure they need to broaden their understanding and deepen their expertise.
At ISP we believe that the middle school years can be the most exciting and productive of a child’s academic career.
We encourage the energy, enthusiasm and natural curiosity of emerging adolescents, while providing the guidance and structure they need to broaden their knowledge and comprehension – a process that empowers them to take responsibility for their own learning.
The curriculum followed at ISP combines elements inspired by several educational systems around the world. It combines a carefully structured approach to basic skills development with a dynamic and creative approach to learning.
In each of the subject areas (Language Arts/Social Studies, Mathematics, Modern Languages (French, Spanish, Mandarin or German), Music, Art & Drama, Physical Education and Health Studies and Science) students develop key skills that are authentic and connected. Students have opportunities to apply knowledge and skills in real world contexts where they can act like a scientist, think like a historian or problem-solve like a mathematician.
