We focus on nurturing and strengthening independent learning in an environment that helps students become well-balanced, confident, and inspired by a love of learning and inquiry.

Learning at ISM is driven by our six learning principles. Created and developed by our teachers and based upon leading global research, they are a summary of what good learning looks like. Our learning principles are at the front and centre of all our conversations at school, whether discussing daily classroom teaching or long-term professional learning for teachers.

University Counselling

The International School of Monaco has a diverse student body: each student has his or her own particular interests, talents, academic needs, and personalities. The university counselling process is tailored to identifying the school that best fits each individual student. From discussing personal goals, career aspirations, and personal preferences, to co-creating the plan for successful university admissions, our college counselling process supports students from start to finish.
