International Applicants

We realize that families applying from abroad frequently need to apply off-cycle from our regular admissions season. If you are inquiring after the local December 1st application deadline, please contact our Admissions Office, to ascertain availability and next steps.

 

Please note: ISB is a full immersion program (French or Spanish) in the early years (Nursery, Pre-K, and Kindergarten) and can accommodate native speakers, bilingual, and anglophone students. Because the program progresses into a bilingual model (French/English or Spanish/English), ISB require candidates for 2nd through 5th Grade to have academic fluency in French or Spanish in order to be considered for admission. French or Spanish-speaking students new to English can be accommodated at all grade levels.

 

General Information regarding admissions and steps to apply:

  • Parents must fill out an admissions application and a $75 application fee (a link to the application will be provided after contact with admissions and in accordance with availability)
  • Students applying to 1st grade and above must submit the previous year and current year school reports
  • 1 or 2 Teacher Recommendation forms are required, depending on the grade to which the student is applying
  • Student work samples for applicants to 1st Grade and above must be submitted for the admissions file
  • Admissions will schedule a Skype interview with parents and student (depending on age)
  • Submission of an application does not guarantee admission to ISB

7th Grade Adventures in Monteverde, Costa Rica

Once we landed in Costa Rica, we were welcomed by our guide and we began our bus trip to Monteverde. About an hour later, we stopped to have lunch, which the students called "una comida deliciosa.” After lunch, we continued our journey, during which we marveled at the natural beauty of the countryside and spotted several animals such as cows, horses, dogs, and even goats. The bus ride was filled with exclamations of “Wow!”, “Look at that!" and "Did you see that?"

Sustainability at ISB

Every day is Earth Day at ISB! You can see it embedded in our units and coming to life in projects all year long. At this moment, Kindergartners are engaged in their Keepers of the Earth unit. The students are seriously considering the potential in all materials, and they have drastically reduced their classroom need for paper and plastic. Saving and reusing paper is paramount, and ongoing production of recycled paper sheets has begun.
