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

French American International School

Member School & 51st Conference Host School Spotlight: French American International School / International High School of San Francisco


The French American International School and International High School is a world-class lower, middle and high school located in the heart of San Francisco. This PreK-12 independent, coeducational institution of 1,100 students provides multilingual, international education to globally minded students. Students begin speaking French in Kindergarten, become bilingual as they complete lower school, and go on to study a third language in 6th grade. High school students follow honors-level French Bac or International Baccalaureate diploma programs; and travel the world studying in such places as Tahiti, Italy, Peru, China, Morocco, and India. In addition to international academic programs, the school offers its students competitive athletics and spectacular visual and performing arts.

It takes a unique type of person, whether student or parent, teacher or administrator, to join our community: bold but not brash, caring but not doting, reflective yet active. We hold dear the values of respect, integrity, inclusion, collaboration and curiosity. We strive to think critically and creatively, to build resilience, and to communicate across cultures. All are essential tools in today's world—ones that we have been cultivating for over 50 years.
