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.

The Design Classroom Becomes a 3D Makerspace for the 8th Grade Model Chair Project

During the first semester, the 8th Grade students started a unit on three-dimensional design. The project required students to design chairs, first using two and three-dimensional drawing skills, and later transferring their ideas into a three dimensional modeling program called “SketchUp”. Their final assessment for the unit was the finished 3D chair.

All the School’s a Stage: Performing Arts at ISB

ISB’s performing arts curriculum emphasizes creativity and exploration from its beginning in Nursery music through its finale in 8th Grade. What does this mean in the classroom? How does the curriculum build from our Preschool music program through our Middle School Performing Arts program? How does performance arts at ISB integrate into our curriculum, and how does the program reflect ISB’s core values? ISB Teachers Melanie Cozzi and Mariko Watt sat down to answer these questions and to highlight the many ways performing arts enrich the student experience at ISB.
