International School Of Panama
On The Pursuit Of Academic Excellence
For over 30 years the International School of Panama has placed the pursuit of academic excellence at the center of our approach to teaching and learning. Educational paradigms are shifting towards a focus on 21 century skills. Our philosophy of teaching addresses this change by asking what we are doing to better prepare our students to be successful in a future without borders.
As a forward-thinking school, we focus on the development of the whole child through challenging academic experiences, diverse artistic pursuits, varied athletic and leadership opportunities and service to the community. This holistic approach to education hinges on providing students with the opportunities to explore areas of interest like theater, engineering, computer science, robotics and much more. Allowing our students to go beyond asking what they want to be when they grow up and instead ask what problems they want to solve.
ISP's student centered approach ensures student success by exposing every student to an array of academic and extracurricular choices allowing them to discover what inspires them and gives them the skills to pursue their passion and contribute something of value.
With this in mind we have recently rolled out our Innovation and Entrepreneurship Certificate Program (IEC), the first of its kind among international schools in the region. High school students not pursuing the IB now have the opportunity to take on the IEC. This school year the first group of students enrolled in the certificate program started on this journey and the results have been beyond expectations
This is precisely what we are after at ISP, creating opportunities for every student to have unique and wholistic educational experiences, every day, in every class. Leaving them with the knowledge, abilities and skills, to positively influence the world they live in. For more information please visit us at www.isp.edu.pa
