Mission and Values



Phoenix International School’s vision is to promote strength of character through the development of personal responsibility, integrity, and the ability to learn and grow in a culturally diverse and technologically advanced society.



The Phoenix International School is committed to producing self-directed, life-long learners by providing our diverse student body with the skills they need to become critical thinkers, collaborative workers, effective communicators, and technologically literate individuals. Phoenix International School's mission is to promote educational excellence, personal responsibility, and balanced growth, and thereby to help its students to discover and develop their talents and to fulfill their best potentials.

Phoenix International School also believes that participation of parents in their children's education is essential to accomplishing its mission. The School makes every attempt to inform them of the School's purposes and goals, and expects their strong support in the pursuit of these aims



Phoenix International School emphasizes both academic attainment and character development. Our ideal students are intellectually capable boy or girl of sound character whose talents, interests, and uniqueness are educational assets for other Phoenix International School children. Phoenix International School will value its students for their potential, as well as their achievement, and will strive always for their balanced growth-intellectual, physical, social, and ethical.

Phoenix International School recognizes that the primary responsibility for inspiring and strengthening values resides with parents. Nevertheless, the School can and should play an important character education role as well, and has established four core values that form the basis for Phoenix International School's efforts to increase its emphasis on character development.

The primary goals of Phoenix International School are intellectual endeavor and achievement. The School also believes that a well-rounded education includes experiences in the arts, athletics, and a variety of extra-curricular activities.

Phoenix International School further believes that every student is and will continue to be part of a community and, therefore, seeks to strengthen his or her moral responsibility and service to it. To that end, the School actively promotes honesty, respect, responsibility, and kindness.
