Strategic Focus Areas in action

By ISB Communications Team

Last week, all three of the International School of Beijing (ISB)'s Strategic Focus Areas were fully visible on campus!

Our Parent Teacher Conferences were not only an opportunity to strengthen relationships between faculty and home, but also exemplified our commitment to Strategic Focus Area 1: 'our core': challenging and joyful learning.




The Middle School play, "Once Upon A Hutong" was a great example of Strategic Focus Area 2: using our resources to empower students to purpose and compassion. This includes finding at least one co-curricular area and one academic area which they are passionate about.


And our dedication to developing strong, lifelong peer relationships (Strategic Focus Area 3) across national, linguistic, and cultural lines in our inclusive community was on display during today's staff Professional Development Day. Faculty and staff spent time together to make our teaching and programs even better!
