Each year, the International School of Paris organises more than 100 field trips. Many of the field trips take place during the school day, as part of the regular class work. The local visits to museums, parks, organizations and companies, as well as walks within specific areas of Paris are designed to enrich the students' learning.
In addition to the local visits, we organize overnight trips to various destinations in France. These field trips offer students experiential learning opportunities, providing them with activities in environments that are rich in nature and history. During these longer field trips, students also get an opportunity to get to know each other better, and to bond as a class. The overnight field trips typically take place at the beginning of the year for Grades 5-10, and in the spring for Grade 4.
The students have additional opportunities to go on field trips as part of our Extended Curriculum Activities, both in the local community, elsewhere in France, and throughout Europe. In addition to sports tournaments, ISP students travel to various academic competitions ranging from mathematics to debate, to theater workshops and Model United Nations conferences, to name just a few.
Last but not least, the school also organizes an annual ski trip, as well as a trip to Spain, to give students opportunities to learn about world at large.
