ISPP is a not-for-profit IB continuum school.

We are very careful who we invite to join the faculty at ISPP because we have spent the past several years growing and developing our staff. Teachers who join ISPP are switched on and very much into their own learning and professional development. The faculty is positive, collegial and professional -- they need to be because this is a very busy school which requires a very strong work ethic. We have high expectations of our faculty and everyone is accountable for our learning environment. For a variety of reasons, that will not be a good fit for everyone, so it is a really good idea to triangulate your information about ISPP when considering us as your next school. You can start at our website and then try to find people who know us or know of us.

Our 10-year re-accreditation/re-authorization reports from 2021 were very positive from CIS/WASC/IB.
