For all students, High School is a significant time in their development. Students enter high school as adolescents and leave as young adults. In four years students are expected to mature, both academically and emotionally, to be ready for “real-life” after school.
Preparing for "Real-Life"
The High School follows a curriculum model that enables graduates to continue their academic studies at a tertiary level. The educational program is balanced with opportunities for choice and specialization while still focusing on the requirements for tertiary education.
In grades 9 and 10 students’ complete years 4 and 5 of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP). In Grades 11 and 12, the high school has a wide array of College Board approved Advanced Placement (AP) courses available (essentially 1st year college level classes).
Our High School is relatively small, so a supportive and collegial atmosphere exists, with students and teachers working towards a common goal of high achievement. A sense of community is built through the small homeroom groups that meet once a day.
The high school encourages participation in community service, sports, extra-curricular activities and clubs. The unique location of Trinidad affords many opportunities for learning to take place outside the classroom and strengthening links with the host country, its culture, and the Caribbean.
It’s been a short 14 months since I’ve been in enrolled at ISPS , and that time was severed in half due to the pandemic. However, in the short span of time I’ve been here, I’ve never felt more blessed than to be immersed in such a vibrant community that bleeds joy, spirit and love.
