Languages Taught

Through entry in Grade 9, we can provide full support to students who are complete beginners in English and the level of French is not a concern at any grade. Our teachers are experienced in adapting their lesson content for different abilities and language levels, and we have specialist EAL (English as an Additional Language) teams who can offer support inside and outside the classroom. Classes are taught in English at ISP and it is not a bilingual curriculum. However, we recognize the importance of French as the language of our host country and, as such, it plays a key role in school life and is a mandatory subject at all levels.
