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.

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.
