Our Approach to Learning

Toggle Language English to French

The International School of Nice places the student at the centre of the learning process; the individual is always at the heart of what we do.

Our international curricula are broad, offering innumerable pathways before and beyond graduation and our teachers aid students in self-initiated inquiry. Student-centred learning develops students’ independence in solving complex problems and makes learning meaningful to the individual.

Ensuring that each student develops his or her potential, teachers support individual learning styles in small classes and tailor instruction to students’ individual learning goals.

We feel many parents are drawn to our school because we understand that each student in our diverse community has unique capabilities, and we believe in finding each individual’s path.

Supporting, inspiring and empowering students

Students at the International School of Nice are fully supported by the whole school community as they aspire to fulfil their individual potential and flourish as well-rounded individuals.

We set high expectations of their efforts and encourage them to willingly endure their learning journey as they seek to attain excellent academic achievements and credentials.

Of equal significance, we invite our students to actively experience arts, sports and leadership opportunities through the school.

A holistic approach to learning

Our students are encouraged to embrace the International Baccalaureate (IB) mission statement.

The IB philosophy highlights the importance of a holistic approach to learning where each student fully develops as a whole person and takes a proactive role as a responsible global citizen.

This philosophy is made actionable by the IB learner profile, which outlines the ten attributes at the heart of this approach.

Our school community is truly living the virtues and values of the IB learner profile, an attractive feature enjoyed by ISN students and teachers alike.

International School of Nice students strive to develop these characteristics, the full details of which can be found in the complete IB learner profile.

The IB learner profile aims to transform students to become:

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open-minded
  • Caring
  • Risk-takers
  • Balanced
  • Reflective
