At ISB we seek to promote a three-way partnership in which the school, student and parents work together to ensure the best possible environment for each student to realise their potential. We aim to foster an environment in which a sense of responsibility, understanding and respect for others are fundamental to all that takes place.

The Middle Years Programme at ISB holistically supports student growth by placing emphasis on academics, service, and extracurricular activities.  Students in Grade 8 - 10 are given increasing opportunities to lead and develop their own sense of self within our supportive learning community.

(Grade 6 - 7)

 

Early adolescence is a critical phase of personal and intellectual development and we, as a staff, aim to provide our students with an environment which will foster skills such as creativity, discipline and flexibility to support them through this phase of development. We encourage our students to develop a desire to learn, to pursue academic excellence and to become life-long learners.
