Are you ready to open up a world of possibilities?
At the International School of Boston (ISB), students, beginning in Preschool through Grade 12, are challenged to see things differently, think broadly and openly, and become successful global citizens. They are introduced to the world through a rigorous bilingual program within the context of a truly international classroom -- teachers and students from all around the globe.
New in September 2022: Students from Grades 2-5 will be given the option to either learn Spanish or Chinese.
As one of the oldest bilingual French-American schools in the United States, ISB prepares students for one of two esteemed international diplomas, the French or the International Baccalaureate, allowing students to apply to any college or university in the world.

The ISB admissions process is thoughtful and selective. We work closely with new families to determine if our school is the best place for your child to learn, grow and become an open-minded citizen of the world.
Your child’s experience is at the heart of our selection process. We consider:
- The student’s overall academic and developmental readiness for his/her grade.
- His/her ability to benefit from an academically challenging bilingual curriculum.
- The family’s commitment to our mission, program and diverse multicultural setting.
