As a teacher, I see the students grow during their years at ISB into capable, sophisticated students and --more importantly--wise and kind people.

Leadership of the school is quite poor and so not welcoming The curriculum is challenging, especially in 8th grade, but that is a good thing.

The curriculum is demanding but the ...  Read more

I'm a student here at ISBOS and I absolutely love it! Although there might not be enough students, I'm really close with the people in my class! The twelve graders have gone to great colleges and will continue to do so. I love this school so much and encourage student to come here next year.
