Elementary School

Action as Service

Central to learning at ISS International School is the belief that education extends beyond the intellectual to include not only socially responsible attitudes, but also thoughtful and appropriate action. An ISS International School education inspires all learners to become engaged, socially responsible individuals with an understanding of their responsibilities within their local community and as global stewards.

An attention to service to fellow students and to the larger community both in and outside school is expected of students. Through such service, students are able to grow both personally and socially, developing skills such as cooperation, problem solving, conflict resolution, creative and critical thinking, as well as developing their own identities. It is also through service that ISS International School students may make the connections between their academic studies and real life.
