Academics at ISB: A Global Learning Experience
From Preschool through Grade 12, ISB students are introduced to the world through French immersion and learning in an international environment. They challenge themselves academically, explore their creativity and increase their confidence as they speak and think in two or more languages. Long known for our excellence in bilingual French and English education, we are proud to add another world language, Spanish, for our students to explore and master, starting with our Grade 2 students and continuing through Grade 12.
Our program features:
- French immersion: Preschool through Grade 2
- Bilingual teaching: Grades 3 through 8
- Two diploma tracks (International Baccalaureate or French Baccalaureate): Grades 9 through 12
- New in 2021-22: Spanish Language Program
We are launching our new Spanish-language program, offering our elementary students the opportunity to become trilingual and our secondary students the option to study Spanish at the novice or fully fluent level within the English-based International Baccalaureate curriculum.
Contact us today to learn more about this exciting new opportunity to expose students to Spanish for the first time and offer options for advanced and native speakers at the Middle and Upper School levels.
The French Education Ministry has formally recognized ISB’s Elementary Division as a Section Internationale, which serves as an official guarantee of our excellence in multilingual and multicultural education. Through this program, we are launching the language exploration program Eveil aux langues in Maternelle and our new Spanish-language program in all other Divisions. This is in addition to our excellent French and English programs. ISB graduates are fluent in multiple languages.
Become a sophisticated critical thinker, and develop skills for life.
Audrey, Class of 2016
After having studied in both the French track and the IB, I have grown to be a more curious learner and engaged individual, but most importantly, a risk-taking and persevering leader. I am excited to tackle new challenges after my high school career.
