General School Mission

"The aim of the International School of Boston is to provide students with a positive, inclusive, learning environment in which they have every opportunity to achieve their full potential. The School believes in the attainment of academic excellence but also firmly believes in the education of the whole person as well as in education for life and world citizenship. Our concern is for the students’ physical, moral, aesthetic, artistic and academic development.

In practice, we believe that this will be realized through a wide range of opportunities and challenges, and that the mastery of fundamental skills goes hand in hand with the freedom to create and explore.

The International School of Boston, through its bilingual, bicultural curriculum and international learning environment, accepts responsibility for fostering an understanding in its students of the cultural heritages of France and the United States as well as a respect for their own cultural identities within the concept of world citizenship. We seek to inspire in our students a spirit of social responsibility towards their peer group, the School and the community at large.

Furthermore, the International School of Boston, as a school, believes in promoting educational excellence within all its constituencies. As such, we must act as a leader and a resource both for bilingual education and international values amongst young people.

The necessary ingredients to reach these goals include time, patience and a share vision held by all involved in the School community.
