The Elementary School at ISB
Grade 3 - Grade 6
The Elementary School (ES) at ISB is where children ages 8-12 years learn by exploring the world with curiosity, and by asking questions and developing skills in problem solving and interpretation. This is where the Learning Journey continues, building upon the foundations laid in the Early Childhood Centre, and further consolidating the understandings, skills, and knowledge necessary for a lifetime of inquiry-based learning.
Our job is to bring out the best in every student so that we can help them flourish. Our students set their own goals and challenges, and we work hard to achieve them together.
Student Choice - Passion for Learning
At the ES, we want our learners to look beyond the classroom. Each year, students can identify an area they want to explore and focus on throughout the year, and eventually share with the broader community. Students identify a topic and area they are passionate about, and there is a lot of choice in what they will work on. This allows students to grow both in their knowledge of the subject, as well as in how they explore learning and overcoming challenges.
