Our mission is to shape lifelong achievers who can speak and think in multiple languages and who can apply their knowledge anywhere in the world.
Our distinctive bilingual curriculum is rooted in the rigor and creativity of the French and American academic traditions. We inspire our diverse international student body to pursue academic excellence, and we prepare our graduates to thrive at the world’s best universities.
The ISB Way
The ISB Way is our distinctive approach to engaging with our students, from Preschool (Maternelle) through Upper School.
In the ISB Way…
- Each student is continually challenged but unconditionally loved.
- Mastering a language other than one’s own is a way to find success and fulfillment in a global world.
- Differences in a student’s ethnicity or socioeconomic background are reasons for celebration, not alienation.
- Daily achievement is measured not only by test scores, but also by a student’s capacity to relate to other citizens of the world.
