High School Placement

Advocates for Our Students' Future

ISB recognizes the critical role of high school placement support and provides a variety of resources to help its Middle School students and families navigate this complex process.

8th Grade families work closely with ISB’s High School Placement Coordinator and the Director of Middle School during the high school application and placement process. Our multi-year program allows the Director of Middle School and the High School Placement Coordinator to help families find the best match between our students and high schools.

ISB students apply to a broad range of high schools, including independent day schools, schools with religious affiliations, public schools, specialized public schools, and boarding schools.

Because of their strong academic backgrounds, critical thinking skills, creativity, and compassion, ISB graduates are highly sought after by high schools.
