ISPP is an International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School. The IB is a non-profit educational foundation, motivated by its mission, focused on the student.
The ISPP Mission Statement aligns with the International Baccalaureate Mission:
Founded in 1968, the IB currently works with nearly 4,000 schools in 146 countries to develop and offer their challenging programmes to more than one million students aged 3 to 19 years. Within each country, networks and associations enable schools to learn from each other’s experiences. Teachers, coordinators and heads of schools from across the whole region meet at IB Asia-Pacific workshops and conferences.
Three programmes are offered at ISPP to help develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world.
For students aged 3 to 12, the PYP focuses on the development of the whole child in the classroom and in the world outside.
For students aged 11 to 16, the MYP provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills, achieved through embracing and transcending traditional school subjects.
For students aged 16 to 19, the DP is a demanding two-year curriculum leading to final examinations and a qualification that is welcomed by leading universities around the world.
Each programme includes a curriculum and pedagogy, student assessment appropriate to the age range, professional development for teachers, and a process of school authorisation and evaluation. The IB Learner Profile is a set of ideals that can inspire, motivate and focus the work of IB schools and teachers, uniting them in a common purpose and providing a long-term vision of education. Students are provided with opportunities to develop the following attributes of the Learner Profile:
