Learning to be well

  • Student wellbeing is critical.
  • We aim to develop in young people the resources, agility and imagination needed to live productively and sustainably.
  • By embracing change our students will see challenges and setbacks as exciting learning opportunities.

The International School of Paris Student Wellbeing Team is dedicated to supporting each student by promoting positive attitudes, choices, and behaviors.

The Wellbeing Programme supports both the school’s mission and objectives and the IB Learner Profile, and aims to

  • Develop transferable skills in compassionate thinking and self-management
  • Develop skills to resolve conflict peacefully
  • Promote the development of physical health, ethics and social behaviour
  • Encourage lifelong learning
  • Provide an environment where students feel secure and welcome
  • Promote respect for the rights of everyone

Our team encourages everyone in our school community to promote and maintain appropriate conduct, and this is characterized as behavior which

  • Values and respects the rights of others, including the right to learn
  • Fosters a happy, safe and secure environment
  • Recognizes that each member of the community is unique
  • Treats others fairly
  • Expects members of the community to take responsibility for their actions
  • Promotes compassion and tolerance
  • Develops skills for a peaceful resolution of conflict
  • Values and respects others and their differences
  • Addresses inappropriate behavior
  • Upholds the school’s mission, objectives and ethos
An IB education is holistic in nature—it is concerned with the whole person. Along with cognitive development, IB programmes address students’ social, emotional and physical well-being.
