ISB strongly believes in education being more than limited to the fours walls of a classroom. Our leadership team, through extensive research, developed an outdoor education program, which focuses on basic outdoor activity skills, social/emotional competencies, and character development as key focus areas.
ISB is dedicated to providing sequential curriculum in Outdoor Education for all middle school students, through a formally delivered, assessed and reported outdoor education curriculum. This unique program offers all middle school students a chance to expand their skills and knowledge in the outdoors, taking on challenges in a safe yet challenging environment where students can thrive and push their own boundaries realizing their true potential.
Guided by dedicated professional outdoor education teachers who are certified to world industry standard, the Wild Panthers outdoor education team provides exceptional opportunities for ISB students.
Each expedition is 3 days and 2 nights and will be hosted at ISB’s Environmental Wilderness Campus (EWC).
The expedition is unique in the scenario-based challenges that it poses to students, challenging them to solve problems and to step out of their comfort zone in an atmosphere of safety and cooperation. Students reflect on their experiences and the learning that took place, and are challenged to transfer this learning to other parts of their life both now and for the future, identifying how each experience will serve them when faced with difficult or challenging situations.
