CIT and Internship Programs

CIT Program

The Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program at ISB is designed to introduce rising 7th, 8th and 9th graders to the world of being a summer program counselor with the added element of language immersion. CITs will work with program groups, alongside the teaching teams, developing leadership and collaborative skills. Training dates will be scheduled prior to the start of the program.

CIT Program Fees: $100 per week. Additionally, there is a non-refundable registration fee of $4.95 per session.

ISB Summer Internships

For bilingual high school students (rising 10th-12th graders), unpaid internship opportunities are available this summer at ISB! Interns assist teachers in planning activities for the groups, collaborate with the teaching team, and build leadership skills. Interns must be available to complete a three week session.

Literacy Week 2018

Amid the frenzy of Election Day and Parent Teacher Conferences, the ISB community came together to transform the gym for the 14th Annual Multilingual Book Fair: a forest of enticing French, English and Spanish literature, and to celebrate Literacy Week. The enthusiasm for the events stretched far and wide.

Le cycle d’investigation: Les objets témoins du passé

Pour “entrer dans le sujet” de cette nouvelle unité, les élèves de CM1 (4th grade) ont joué les archéologues et déterrer des objets. Ils les ont nettoyés à l’aide de pinceaux, observer à la loupe, dessiner, puis ils ont fait des fiches décrivant ces objets. Ils sont arrivés à la conclusion que sur un site archéologique les objets les plus anciens sont enterrés le plus profondément et les objets récents se trouvent plus en surface.

Service Learning at ISB

Throughout our students’ time at ISB, they are asked to take action in various ways, both as part of the curriculum and through stand alone initiatives. In the curriculum, the community service program builds as students advance through the Primary Years Programme (PYP - PK 3's through 5th Grade) and Middle Years Programme (MYP - 6th Grade-8th Grade), culminating in the MYP Community Service Project each student completes in 8th Grade. In addition to the classroom and individual service projects, ISB also organizes two school-wide service days, Local Day of Service and Global Service Day, to align with our goal of ensuring that our students become locally- and globally-minded.
