ISB Spring Cultural Series

At ISB, community engagement is one of our core values. Each year, the Advancement Office hosts a range of events that highlight our community's expertise and brings our community together over our shared core values. This spring, we are proud to introduce four cultural events to benefit ISB's Annual Fund for Excellence. Purchases of tickets at the Adventurer, Advocate, and Leader level will count towards participation in the Fund for Excellence. We hope to see many parents, students, alumni families, and staff at these year's events!
