There are many things that make ISB an exciting place to work. Three reasons, however, stand out above all the others: our vision, our focus on learning and our curriculum.
A powerful vision
‘Everyone included, everyone challenged, everyone successful' - is a simple message, but to put it into practice at every level is extremely complex. We are, however, deeply committed to these values and strive for excellence in all aspects of our work. In practice, this means that we:
- Accept the whole range of students, including those with severe learning difficulties
- Include our community in key discussions and decisions
- Work in collaborative teams
- Use student profiling to ensure that each student is genuinely successful
- Have a focus on learning
Our mission commits us to learning as the driving force in our school, for all students and adults, including our administrative staff. All planning and all major projects are evaluated in terms of their impact on learning. ISB is truly learning-focused, in ways that few schools approach.
A coherent international curriculum
We have also designed a unique curriculum model, from Nursery - Grade 12, which addresses the common ground of human experience from the multiple perspectives of our students. Embedded in this framework are standards and benchmarks in all learning areas. The whole curriculum is supported by curriculum mapping technology for ease of access and transparency.
