The primary function of The International School of Panama Teacher is to facilitate the students learning process and create productive environments in which students can develop skills they might need at present or in the future.  He or she provides within the classroom learning opportunities for the students and assists in other school programs working harmoniously with the administrative staff and parents in support of the ISP Teaching Philosophy, school policy, regulations, objectives and goals.


Our primary mission is to meet the unique educational, emotional, and social needs of each and every student who walks through our doors. We accomplish this by providing a rich, holistic experience in a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility. All of the staff members at ISP share a common goal – and that is to do whatever it takes to help our students reach their full potential as learners and as global citizens. We recognize that education is a complex, dynamic process, and we constantly evaluate our practice to ensure that students are engaged, that they are appropriately challenged, and that they experience joy in learning.

We offer a research-based curriculum that emphasizes a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy as well as critical thinking, citizenship, and ample opportunities for creative expression. Our whole-child approach includes challenging social studies, science, and math programs. Students stay fit and healthy in our physical education classes, they experience art and music in our enrichment classes, they get hands-on access to technology in our computer classes, and they learn to appreciate literature through frequent visits to our comprehensive library. Students are also exposed to daily Spanish classes to either introduce them to the language, or expand their Spanish language abilities as needed. In addition to these special enrichment classes, our students are engaged in the social emotional realm as they have set aside, weekly classroom visits and lessons from their grade level counselor. At ISP, we believe that life-long learning is critical for everyone. Our early release time on Wednesdays is devoted to professional development activities designed to continually improve our services to students and families. Education is not static, and our staff understands the importance of keeping up with the latest research regarding effective educational practices.
