In today’s rapidly changing world, we often look for things that we know for certain. One of these certainties is that educating our children to be Curious, Competent, Compassionate Changemakers is our best hope for a bright future. The fulfilment of our mission has the power to build relationships, innovate, and develop leaders and thinkers that can bring peace and positive change to our world. Everything we do at ISP is with this goal in mind.
Giving is part of the culture at our school, and over the years, hundreds of donors have helped make ISP what it is today.
Why do I give to ISP?
To support ISP in introducing innovative, exceptional, and be-spoken programs, such as Outdoor Education and Sustainability
Anna Lukyanova Middle School Parent
To further support my children’s holistic education, I gave to two areas that will make a big difference to my children’s time at ISP: Design, Technology & Robotics and Learning Support!
Hilda Leahy Upper School Parent
To encourage other parents to participate. I know that even ‘small’ gifts when combined together make a big difference
Amy Seymour Parent of Alumni
We feel that it’s pertinent for the parent community to give to the Annual Fund, which is designed to enhance the unique learning experiences students receive at ISP, and to keep the school’s legacy of excellent education sustainable also during the years to come.
Tatiana Eichler Elementary & Upper School Parent
Every gift counts, be it small or be it large. It all adds up. As parents of alumni who started their education journey with the ISP community, we have seen them flourish. We feel honoured every time we have the chance to contribute and enrich the ISP experience for them and for others.
Staffan Erenmalm Parent of Alumni
To foster a culture of innovation outside of the tuition fees and support the school our kids go to.
Patrick Frape and Jenny Snively Elementary and Middle School Teachers
To inspire parents to support special projects at ISP. I know the amount I give is small, but if enough of us demonstrate our support, it can encourage major donors to make transformative gifts..

“One of the benefits of being part of a world class school is not only the things we do inside of the classroom, but the things that are available to us outside of the classroom.”
Dr. Chip Kimball, ISP Director
Bringing accomplished professionals to ISP gives our students and families access to expertise and ideas that will help shape their experience and inspire them to go out and change the world.
Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of our donors, we were honored to welcome Petr Sis, world-renowned author, illustrator, graphic artist, and storyteller to ISP in September 2022, as the first speaker in our Distinguished Speaker Series in honor of Dr. Arnie Bieber, ISP Director for 13 years, and his wife Marianne.
Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of our donors, we were honored to welcome Petr Sis, world-renowned author, illustrator, graphic artist, and storyteller to ISP as the first speaker in our Distinguished Speaker Series in honour of Dr. Arnie and Marianne Bieber.
Bringing accomplished professionals, like Peter Sis, to ISP gives our students and families access to expertise and ideas that will help shape their experience, and help them go out and change the world.
During his two-day visit to campus on 8 and 9 September 8, 2022, Petr exemplified our ISP Mission to Inspire, Engage and Empower all learners.
Petr’s humble, authentic, and warm demeanor won over the hearts of our whole community, young and old. Petr engaged our community with stories of his writing and his life that included sessions for every age student from 3 to 18 years old and our community at large. His sessions at ISP included:
Opening session for parents, teachers and alumni attended by 70 people.
Student sessions in classrooms and assemblies. Petr’s sessions inspired our students to see writing and illustrating as a powerful form of personal expression and a vehicle for changing the world.
Donor reception and movie screening attended by 250 people.
Thank you to the extraordinary generosity of our donors who made it possible to bring Petr Sis to ISP.
NASA Astronaut Ricky Arnold and his wife Eloise came to ISP in 2019. Mr. Arnold served on the International Space Station, circling our planet every day for almost 8 months, along with his fellow astronauts from around the world. His week-long visit to ISP was an inspirational experience for our community, allowing them to be with and learn from someone who has a truly unique perspective about our shared planet and our interconnectedness. Mr. Arnold met with students from Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle and Upper School, in addition to an ISP community evening event.
In 2016 ISP had the tremendous honour of hosting the internationally renowned British primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, and UN Messenger of Peace, Dr. Jane Goodall MBE. The visit was keenly anticipated, with the Elementary School preparing a special musical welcoming after learning about her life and work. Middle School students produced expertly designed posters, postcards and ‘peace poles’ for the visit, while Upper School Students also prepared various fundraising activities. Dr. Goodall urged students to get involved with important causes and specifically with her signature program Roots and Shoots.
