Supporting ISP

ISP is a not-for-profit school. We count on the support and involvement of our community to strengthen our mission to Inspire, Engage and Empower all learners to be Curious Competent Compassionate Changemakers.

100% of your generosity goes directly to enhance the experience of our students by preserving what is best about ISP: exceptional teachers, a challenging and responsive learning program, and unique experiences in and out of the classroom.

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 Elementary 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 Middle & Upper School Parent
  • To encourage other parents to participate. I know that even ‘small’ gifts when combined together make a big difference

    Amy Seymour Upper School Parent
  • 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 Chair of the Board
  • 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..

The ISP Fund: The Power of Collective Giving at ISP

ISP is a community of changemakers, and each year we ask for your help to ensure that we can provide a world-class experience for our students. Will you join us and help make learning at ISP even better? We are inviting our community to contribute to the ISP Fund 2022/23, our annual community appeal, combining gifts for maximum impact. Read inside the article how your gifts are making a difference right now at ISP.

Last year, one in three members of our community made a gift to ISP. We are deeply grateful for our community’s generosity. Your gifts through the ISP Fund have enhanced the experience and programmes for our students, including the purchase and implementation of new cutting-edge tools for our Design, Robotics, and Technology Programme, such as the Dobot Robot Arms, unveiled this week in Elementary School.

In January of 2023, we were delighted to welcome Aaron Moniz, educational consultant and co-founder of the organization, Inspire Citizens, to ISP. Over the course of his one-week visit, Aaron worked with educators, students, and parents, to support the ISP mission of Inspiring, Engaging, and Empowering all learners to be Curious, Competent, Compassionate, Changemakers! It was an incredible week for our community, with many students feeling excited and empowered to progress with their projects for ISP Changemaker Grants, supported by the ISP Fund.

One of the main aims of Outdoor Learning in Elementary School is to get students up close to nature, and you can’t get much closer than a worm in your hand! Contributions to the ISP Fund help us work towards this goal by providing additional resources such as gardening equipment, observational tools, and reference books.

The ISP music program engages and inspires students to make music and understand and appreciate live music. We are grateful for the donations of our community to the ISP Fund, in the area of Performing Arts, which sponsored the recent visit to campus by the Prague-based professional Big Band, the Jazz Dock Orchestra!

Design classes are new to the ISP Middle School this year, an addition to the schedule that offers all students an introduction to many exciting design aspects.   In the unit “Designing for Others,” students will learn about the design process and design thinking and apply this knowledge to a real-world problem. In their second Unit of Design Inquiry, students will explore the world of robotics and coding using the new Lego Spike Prime system, purchased thanks to the generosity of our community through the ISP Fund. These STEM-ready Lego units engage the students in the basics of coding while tapping into their problem-solving and creative skills.

Our ISP community is a place of many voices, each accompanied by countless stories. Through this podcast, Falcons on Air, we hope to share the voices and stories of fascinating and inspiring individuals with our community.  All Podcast equipment was purchased from the ISP Fund.

Imagine learning about outer space by stepping on the moon, exploring its nearby craters, and gazing at the stars. How about a trip to Paris and a stroll through the Louvre to spark an interest in the visual arts? These experiences are happening now at ISP. Over the last few weeks, our Tech and Innovation Coaches have unveiled the newest addition to the Idea Lab: the VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) headsets purchased from gifts to the ISP Fund. These incredible devices can transport students to any location on earth (or beyond!), presenting opportunities that inspire the imagination and bring learning to life on a whole new level.
