IPS Masterworks

Can a 14-year-old be expected to conduct a public presentation similar to a TED talk?  IPS students have been doing so for over 20 years through a program called Masterworks.

Our middle school curriculum recognizes the importance of independent study.  Self-selected, self-directed, and self-presented, this Masterworks independent study project is compulsory for every Grade 9 student and marks a significant acdademic achievement at IPS.

Meet the Students!

They are alive and inspired, brave and accepted, and challenged daily to express the best of what it means to be human. They feel a sense of belonging and acceptance and are innovative and resilient. They are amazing!


Our program is developed to equip and inspire middle school kids to cultivate their humanity.  IPS is distinctly different: a middle school with 64-72 kids taught by middle school experts.

1st & 2nd Curriculum comprises a wide range of subjects.  But a day at Island Pacific School is much more than a list of classes.



At Island Pacific School it is our job as educators to equip and inspire students to cultivate their humanity.



Philanthropy has been the reason IPS has thrived for 25 years. Help us soar through the next 25!
