Which types of learning support are offered at ISP?
Many of the ISP students who currently receive additional learning support will have had a recent evaluation performed by an external specialist (e.g. neuropsychologist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist, etc.). This is a very useful tool which enables the learning support team to focus remediation accurately.
If you feel your child might benefit from this type of service and you already have a psycho-educational evaluation report available, please provide a copy of this as part of your application. If you do not currently have such a document, and if it appears necessary, the Admissions Committee may ask you to obtain one before confirming its decision.
Learning support services may incur additional fees.

Please consult the table below for information about learning support options offered at the International School of Paris.
The Learning Support Department in the Primary School aims to work with students, teachers, parents, and outside specialists to help children learn within the Primary Years Program (PYP) curriculum framework while taking into account their different learning needs. We support students with mild to moderate learning variances.
Students are identified for learning support during the admissions process or through our internal referral protocols. The delivery of learning support varies according to the students’ identified level of support in group size, type of support, and frequency. Individual Learning Plans (ILPs) and reports are developed dependent on the students’ identified level of support. Students are assigned learning support specialists to work with them, and who become the student’s liaison between the homeroom teacher, parents and outside specialists.
Some of our services include, but are not limited to:
The Secondary School has supplementary learning support services that can be offered to students who are identified as needing extra help in order to succeed academically at the school.
These services are designed to benefit students who are of average academic ability overall, but who have mild weaknesses in one or two specific core skills (typically reading, writing or mathematics).
Please note that ISP’s learning support services are in high demand and availability is limited. The services are designed to support students with mild weaknesses in certain key skill areas and cannot address more generalized or significant learning difficulties.
