The staff at ISD believes a love of learning and a mastery of essential skills and knowledge are mutually supportive and best achieved by combining a research validated methodology and research validated curricula that systematically and explicitly lead children to master skills, knowledge and character traits essential for an educated person in the 21st century. Our goals focus on developing independent learners who enthusiastically engage with a skilled faculty and the curricula that reflects a unique international perspective.
The ISD approach is based on combining the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme currently in operation in more than 100 primary schools throughout the world. The IB program does not replace the Greenwich Public School's curriculum, nor does it compromise our State's standards for learning. Instead, the IB approach enriches ISD's curriculum and operational procedures.
