The International School of Paris (ISP) is an independent, non profit, English-medium day school that welcomes students from ages 3 to 18. The primary, middle and high schools are each located on a different, age-appropriate campus in Paris’s 16th arrondissement. Walking distance between each campus is an average of 10 minutes and views of the Eiffel Tower are common from classrooms at both the middle and high school campuses. The campuses are also in proximity of many of Paris’s top cultural sites meaning that our Paris as a Classroom program allows students to discover the most recent expos or historically significant locations as part of the school day. ISP’s chosen curriculum, the International Baccalaureate (IB - www.ibo.org), is interdisciplinary and internationally recognized as a rigorous university preparation programme at the high school level. The IB is the curriculum of choice in over 5,000 schools across the world. The IB programmes, at all levels (primary, middle and diploma), offer a framework within which students practice and master inquiry, make choices about what they want to learn and contribute to the learning of their peers.  In the Primary Years Programme at ISP (PYP - https://www.ibo.org/programmes/primary-years-programme/) students become familiar with the approaches to learning (ATL) that allow them to successfully navigate six units of inquiry. ATL includes thinking, research, social, communication and self-management skills that, when practiced, allow students to reflect on how they learn and to consistently employ the learning strategies that work best for them.
