We are delighted to announce a new Mission for ISB. The purpose of the ISB Mission statement is to provide direction, define the school's identity, and inspire us as members of a school community. During our successful re-accreditation last year, the visiting team noted that our current Mission, established back in 2005, could benefit from a review to reflect the changes of teaching and learning practices since that time and to provide direction for the future. Also, the Board had agreed that reviewing the Mission was a critical and priority step for the development of the ISB's longer-term strategies, considering the changes both within and outside the school.
