8th Graders Graduate and are Awarded With Words

 

Congratulations to the Class of 2018! Our 27 8th graders, our largest class since opening our Middle School in 2013, graduated from ISDenver last night among family and friends in a beautiful ceremony.

The ceremony included a longstanding ISDenver tradition, the Awarding of Words. This tradition originated with Montclair Academy, which merged with Denver International School in 2009 (to become Denver Montclair International School, now the International School of Denver!). Each graduate is awarded with a word that our MYP team feels best describes the learner as a whole. The words are meant to inspire and instill pride, as one of the cornerstones of our Middle School is acknowledging the uniqueness of each individual student.
 

Each year, the MYP team brainstorms as a team to come up with a list of words that describe each learner. The graduation committee then narrows down the list, and makes a final choice for each student. Next, students and teachers work together to create the actual word awards that will be handed out at the ceremony. The Language and Literature teachers create the descriptions of the words and their applciation for each student, and the 8th grade homeroom teachers present the awards at graduation. We've heard that many alumni keep the words up in their rooms as a reminder of ISDenver, and that some are even taking them to college this fall!


This year's words included:

Adaptable

Innovative

Ambitious

Intellectual

Authentic

Jovial

Confident

Passionate

Conscientious

Perceptive

Creative

Poetic

Determined

Readerly

Devoted

Resolute

Dynamic

Sage

Enthusiastic

Socratic

Ethical

Steadfast

Forerunner

Whimsical

Genuine

Witty
Honest

 

We are so proud of our graduates and who they have become over the years at ISDenver. We wish them all the best in their futures! (Check out where they are heading for high school this fall here!)

2016-2019 Strategic Plan

ISDenver recently completed a strategic planning process with the overarching goal of transforming into a top-tier international school over the next five years. This included updating the mission, vision, values & beliefs and learning principles of the school. This included input throughout the process from parents, students, faculty, staff and the Board of Directors of ISDenver, through surveys and focus groups conducted by Deb Welch.
