The Journey Begins
The ISI experience begins at our Lower School – fittingly, with a choice of languages. Our preschool and lower-elementary immersion programs are offered in French, Spanish, or Mandarin. Students are taught almost exclusively in their “target” language by native speakers who are also trained in our lower school curriculum, the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.
You can learn more about our elementary language immersion method and why it is so effective here.
The lower school is led by its own principal with the help of an assistant principal for each campus. Our lower school students are supported by learning support specialists, language support teachers, teaching assistants, and specialist teachers in art, technology, physical education and music.
Students have computer labs and libraries at both campuses with age-appropriate collections in English, French, Mandarin, and Spanish.
