6 years ago, ISPS became a home to me. ISPS is no longer four letters, or a building or even a school. ISPS has created an environment where everyone feels comfortable, included, and engaged in learning.
Our students go beyond the traditional boundaries of education, leading in ‘real world’ environments, co-authoring a future that values creative collaboration and connections.
Our students in a small school on a small island see themselves on the world stage, making decisions that have a global impact. Our faculty is internationally-minded and prepares our students to become immersed in complex real-world situations.
We believe all students thrive in an environment that has been specifically designed for them. This is why all aspects of the student experience at ISPS have been carefully thought out.
From an early involvement in all that the school has to offer in our Elementary School, to our Middle School support through emotional and social growth, to our understanding that there is a need for balance between formal learning and extra curricular experiences, we believe that school is so much more than what happens in the classroom.
Our students lead the way in Model United Nations, participating in global student sessions in the, USA and Canada, Mexico to name a few.
Service Learning is integrated into our school programs, Pre-K to 12 and despite the challenges of the pandemic our students have made an impact in so many lives in Trinidad, and also leading a drive to assist the victims of the volcano eruptions in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The After School Activities Program at ISPS is well recognized for the variety of opportunities for our students to explore countless opportunities.
I have been at ISPS for approximately eleven years. My entire education has been wrapped up in the ISPS experience. The diversity and inclusion espoused by ISPS is a multicultural mix of the best parts of people from different parts of the world. I have found the teaching delivered by the ISPS teaching community to be rewarding, challenging, and insightful.
I entered ISPS in grade 5 so I have experienced Elementary, Middle, and now High School. It has been a rollercoaster of classes, friends, and now COVID. Through this, though I have learned that ISPS is like a family to me. If I am confused or concerned my teachers are always available to assist me with the material so that I can perform to the best of my ability. Even if it takes a while I always come out feeling a sense of achievement.
Being a student of the international school of Port of Spain for the past 7 years has helped me discover many new aspects of myself. As I’ve grown through the years, my teachers have always kept me motivated to accomplish my tasks and worked alongside each student to harness their individual learning styles while accomplishing daily tasks.
I have been a student at ISPS since 4th grade. I love the multicultural community of students and teachers. I have made great friendships during my years at ISPS. I enjoy the curriculum because ISPS encourages each and every student to develop individual talents, independence, interests and aptitudes.
I have attended the International School of Port of Spain since 2012.Throughout my educational journey for the past 8 years, I’ve learned a lot about myself and my fortitude to succeed.
I have been at ISPS for 6 years, and am now in my senior year, my final year of high school. For everyone ISPS has different meanings to them but for me it has always meant family. Everyone from the teachers to the students has been like a huge family. One of my best memories at ISPS has been playing on the volleyball team for the majority of my time here.
ISPS is a vibrant learning community full of families from all around the world. My school is a place where anyone can be themselves and will be accepted.
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.
I am beyond excited to help lead the middle school to a hopeful and exciting year. I hope that by the end of the year I help make online leaning more enjoyable and help make everyone more persistent to stay positive.
