International Elementary School, Finding Their Way
The elementary curriculum follows the IB Primary Years Programme and the national curriculum of the language being taught.
Grades 1 through 5 at ISI build steadily on the strong foundation established in our pre-elementary program. Elementary students play an even greater role in directing their own hands-on learning and finding answers to their questions.
The language immersion process is still a major factor in their educational lives. In Grades 1 through 3, students begin to receive an hour a day of formal instruction in English. Music is also taught in English. By Grades 4 and 5, about half of students’ school week is spent in English, the other half in their target language.
