At the International School, students are immersed in Spanish Japanese or Chinese while receiving a comprehensive education through our inquiry-based International Baccalaureate curriculum. Rather than working through a standard lesson and memorizing facts students explore central themes and develop their own questions as they apply concepts and skills from a variety of subjects. Through this collaborative constructivist approach 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.

The International School’s small classes and international faculty provide a warm multicultural environment that engages students in math science social studies and arts.  Now celebrating its 25th Anniversary TIS educates nearly 500 students in preschool through 5th grade. Students may start in preschool or kindergarten without prior target language experience.
