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.

3D Printing Comes to ISB

In early Spring 2018, ISB got its first 3D printer, a Lulzbot Taz 6, otherwise known as “Taz.” Soon after, Middle School design teacher Pat Hough collaborated with science teachers Alicia Smith and Kimesha Reid-Grant to create projects that connect science and technology through design.

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?"
