The school is doing a great job in making the children happy and part of the school. It does help moving to a new country that the children enjoy the school. Looking at how much ISB charges I'm not sure it's worth it. I would argue that our old public school was doing as good or even better academically with much less funding.

I love this school. I love the staff. They are all about trying to help my son. The principal and assistant principal both are doing all they can to help fight for what my son should have via his IEP. His current teacher there is wonderful, and although he should have another teacher there for special Ed integrated, she does a wonderful job. She truly cares about every student in her care. Thank you so much to everyone there I have met thus far.

Our school serves the children of the world. With 32 languages spoken and most continents represented, we truly are an International School. My students come from Somalia, Egypt, Yemen and Thailand to name a few. Some of our students have never been to school in their own countries nor are they literate in their first languages. As a 3rd grade teacher I have 1 year to prepare my kids for the state ELA exam and literally hours for the math exam, if they arrive late in the year. Our children work harder than others and their families are incredibly dedicated to the education of their children. The parents of our students are supportive of their children and the teachers that are hoping to instill vast knowledge and values into their youngsters. As educators, we are friends, we are family but mostly we are nurturers to our kids and each other. We need more books and instructional videos and online support to succeed in making our students successful. We need appropriate clothing to make our families comfortable during all of our violent seasons. We are a determined and dedicated staff and want the best for our children.
