Elite Performance

A bespoke pathway for elite performance students

At ISB, every student is unique. We are here to ensure they can follow their passion and develop their unique talent, be it in sports, music, arts, technology and much more.

Our academic programmes in Middle and Senior School are flexible and adaptable, allowing students to follow their passion while pursuing their academic programme. 


The Elite Performance Pathway allows students to attend their individual trainings, rehearsals, games and competitions, while continuing their learning journey as part of the International Baccalaureate programme.

This pathway is particularly suited for students who:

  • are part of a professional sports team or follow a high-level sport training programme;
  • are part of a professional orchestra or similar music ensemble, or follow a music/dance/drama time-intensive programme;
  • who need flexibility to follow other high-level training programmes.

What we offer

  • Multiple pathways towards graduation, adapted to external time commitments and higher education plans

  • Flexible and adaptable school schedules

  • Hybrid programme, with online/onsite classes

  • Individual University Counselling advice, including scholarships identification support, university visits (virtual and on-campus), etc.

  • Access to a one-stop online platform for career exploration and college applications

  • Flexible co-curricular activities including Athletics and Music/Drama Programmes

  • Curricular Course Choices including Music, Theatre, Visual Arts & Sports Science.

How to Apply

Every student is different, so we explore with their family what is the best path to ensure they can combine their academic development with their unique passion. Decisions are made on a case-by-case basis, always giving priority to the student-centric, holistic development.
