Teaching & Learning


The International School of Port of Spain is dedicated to developing passionate learners, from our youngest learners in Pre-Kindergarten 3 through to our seniors. To prepare our students to act with confidence and integrity as caring global citizens, we need to educate them in traditional subject areas, while helping them to develop vital skill and values that go beyond subject confines and age levels.

All School


 

Elementary

The International School of Spain (ISPS) provides the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate Organization and is an authorized IB World School. We are striving to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people. IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to a high quality, challenging, international education that ISPS believes is important for our students.


 

Middle

Middle School programs are diverse in nature, and structured to be challenging, while giving each student opportunities to succeed. Choice and decision-making encourage ownership of knowledge and behaviour.


 

High

The High School (HS) is based upon an American model which enables students to graduate with an American High School Diploma. In the HS, students earn credits for classes taken and they must fulfill a certain number of credits in order to meet graduation requirements (these credit and graduation requirements are discussed further in this handbook).
