he primary function of The International School of Panama Teacher is to facilitate the students learning process and create productive environments in which students can develop skills they might need at present or in the future.

He or she provides within the classroom learning opportunities for the students and assists in other school programs working harmoniously with the administrative staff and parents in support of the ISP Teaching Philosophy, school policy, regulations, objectives and goals.


We are a community of approximately 360 high school students (grades 9, 10, 11, and 12), fifty-plus faculty and staff members, and several hundred parents.

Though a rigorous and engaging academic program sits at the core of the ISP high school experience the arts, athletics, and service are also central to our program.

The foundation that all of this is built upon is a shared belief that the most important thing that we do on this campus is take care of one another.

We are very proud of the work, the learning, and the teaching we do together and also quite humbled by the caliber of people we get to do it all with (on such a beautiful campus).

We are all learning, growing, contributing, and finding (and fine-tuning) our passions in life. Students, faculty, and parents / families included.

The High School Faculty :

Our high school faculty is a mix of ISP founders and veterans who’ve been dedicated to ISP for 20 years, 25 years, or longer along with many teachers who are relatively new to the school and bring experiences with them from all over the world.

Our teaching staff is from the US, Canada, the UK / Europe, Panama, and other parts of Latin America.

Math at ISP :

In the HS Math Department, we use the Mathematics Vision Project (MVP) as our primary resource for grades 9-10, which is a concept-

based approach aligned to the common core standards that allow for inquiry and investigation. It focuses on conceptual understanding, supported by factual knowledge and procedural facility.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program is a challenging two-year curriculum in grades 11 and 12, designed to help students develop the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, and skills necessary to participate actively and responsibly in a changing world.

Even though both curricula interact functionally and effectively, the key elements for the successful student learning are the inquiry teachers who introduce effective questioning which provokes deep level thinking and provides opportunities for students to engage in exploration, inquiry and gain a conceptual understanding of mathematics.

The students are encouraged to actively engage in tasks that have been carefully designed to help them deepen and connect their mathematical knowledge.

They will enhance their understanding through discourse with peers as they share their ways of seeing the mathematics connected to the real world.

The HS math teachers develop and use high quality common diagnostic and formative assessments to provide the information and data needed to guide instruction, differentiate learning, and inform student understanding and progress.


Support the ISP Teaching and Learning Philosophy by developing and teaching a curriculum that engages all learners in purposeful, connected and balanced work that cultivates 21st-century skills.
