Learning for
21st Century Skills

INSPIRA prioritizes learners’ wellbeing, independence, and personal needs. Our goal is to hone a set of skills suitable for living in the 21st century.

Curious

Children genuinely love learning new things. With us, learning becomes a process of trial and error, not a judgement of failure or success.

Creative

Through play and self-expression, we harness our students’ imagination and challenge them to engage with novel educational experiences.

Confident

At INSPIRA, children learn that leadership is, first and foremost, the ability to lead oneself and take responsibility for one’s actions.

Caring

Our students are able to form meaningful relationships with others while supporting healthy living in an active community.

Why Choose INSPIRA?

We believe education is each child’s unique learning journey infused with love, curiosity and the freedom to create a better and happier world.

An International school with an innovative approach for meaningful learning.
