Student Experience


What Defines the Student Experience at ISP?


Students explore France during Trip Week. These trips are an opportunity for students to get to know their peers, to connect with teachers and to practice their independence. 


Students discover their passions through sports, arts, social justice initiatives, environmental clubs, the newspaper and the school news video productions. 


Students connect school work and life experience through our Paris as a Classroom programme, which includes cultural visits, internships and community service. 


Students release their creativity through the student-led production of plays, musicals, concerts and art exhibitions (vernissages) at school. 


Students lead innovation as Research Curators at the ISP Research Centre. Their mentoring helps everyone understand that school is a place to create knowledge, not just absorb it. 

Take Action

Students take action and develop agency through the Model United Nations program and through collaboration with non-profit organisations. They are change makers in their community.

Ping Pong for Solidarity

January, in the middle of a rainy Parisian winter, is not usually the best moment of the year for an outdoor ping pong tournament. However, a group of International School of Paris (ISP) middle school students organised one despite the weather. They convinced students and staff to participate in an epic ping pong battle, and to donate over 130 euros to families in need of food.

This act of solidarity was supported by Ernest, the non-profit responsible for transforming this monetary donation into a week’s worth of fresh produce for 14 families.
