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.

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.

Picture Me! A Portrait Collaboration between 2nd and 7th Grade Students

This year, the art department was motivated to find opportunities for cross-divisional collaboration in the art studio. After brainstorming what sort of project could become a tradition in art class and inspire students to look forward to collaborating together artistically, we came up with the idea of having the 2nd and 7th Graders create portraits of each other. This seemed like the perfect way to promote collaboration, as well as to spark new friendship among the students. A portrait involves the representation of someone, and in order to represent your subject well, you need to get to know a person to show their personality in the portrait. We paired each 2nd Grade artist with a 7th Grade artist and began the exploration.
