Picture your child: fluent in another language, at home in other cultures, and engaged in math, science, social studies and the arts. Well-prepared to live, cooperate, and lead as citizen of the world.
At The International School, students are immersed in Spanish, Japanese or Chinese while receiving a comprehensive education through our inquiry-based International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum. Through our small classes, experienced faculty, and engaging academics, children gain deep understanding and learn the skills needed to acquire, organize, and communicate knowledge – both in English and in fluent Chinese, Spanish, or Japanese.

WHY PARENTS CHOOSE THE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL
We know that you have many schools to choose from, including some other language programs. Here are the top reasons why parents choose The International School (TIS):
Experienced faculty; Native-level Fluency
All TIS teachers have university degrees and have native-level fluency, bringing a wealth of experience, education and creativity from around the world.
Through them, children learn native accents, speech patterns and expressions.
They become truly bilingual.
Children get the attention they deserve with no more than 19 students per class (average class size is even smaller).
The cultures of our global faculty inform every aspect of TIS life. Our students experience Chinese, Japanese, Hispanic and American cultures
thriving individually and working together. TIS students learn to truly appreciate and communicate – beyond mere words – with people of other cultures.
Art, Music & P.E.
Art, music and P.E. are critical parts of our curriculum. They are taught by professionals who are elementary school teachers and specialists in their fields.
