Students at ISF assemble in support of their No Bully week
By Nicholas Carlisle
No Bully announced today that Utah schools will have the opportunity to participate in a No Bully pilot program in the 2015-2016 school year. The No Bully Utah Pilot was launched at the Utah Multicultural Commission’s Youth Leadership Summit in October 2014 where teachers and students had a chance to learn about the No Bully System from founder Nicholas Carlisle. Participating schools will receive the full series of leadership coaching and staff training contained in the No Bully School Partnership.

In September 2014 we interviewed Richard Wilkinson, Emeritus Professor at the University of Nottingham, England.

ISF has always been about more than academic success. At the centre of its school life are the eight virtues plus one (commitment, respect, benevolence, compassion, courtesy, integrity, harmony, balance and wisdom) and a commitment to preparing its students to enter the leading global colleges and universities and take their place as world citizens.
