International Education

Social-Emotional Learning

ISTP strives to create a nurturing environment in which students are encouraged to reach their full potential. Guided by the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile*, social emotional learning is woven into the fabric of the curriculum as well as taught explicitly.
Classes work collaboratively to create Essential Agreements in the beginning of each year, which work in tandem with ISTP’s Citizenship Standards to guide all community members in common behavior expectations. Our international and bilingual approach to education reinforces the idea that each person is a unique and valued member of our learning community.

In Early Years & Elementary,

time is devoted each week to a shared period of “Harmonization,” where both teachers of a class are present to teach social-emotional tools, discuss any issues that may have arisen in the class or on the playground, and share a bilingual approach to both Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) and academics.

In Middle School,

each student is a member of an Advisory group, which provides not only social-emotional tools and support, but also teaches students essential organizational and time management skills. Our students enter high school with not only a rigorous academic preparation, but strong organizational, communication, and emotional intelligence skills.
*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit http://www.ibo.org
