The ISB FLEX programme provides authentic learning opportunities that support the IB Approaches to Learning. Critical Thinking, Research, Communication, Social, and Self-management skills have been identified as crucial to learner success beyond secondary school. The ISB FLEX programme aims to provide students with learning opportunities that challenge, enhance and provide learners with opportunities to make a difference in our and the greater global community through these transformational learning skills. The framework for this program is supported by the ACE dimensions of learning core areas of Creative, Moral, Social, Experiential and Entrepreneurial.

In addition to supporting our students as they build vibrant portfolios that demonstrate the breadth of their learning journey at ISB, enrichment also allows students the opportunity to try different activities, discover new passions, and build upon existing ones through choice and autonomy. While individual enrichment activities may look slightly different in each grade level, one thing is consistent throughout, commitment to providing worthwhile experiences that enhance and enrich each student’s learning experience.
