Offering the Midwest's most distinct academics, high school at ISI
better prepares students for their college experiences.
A part of the ISI Upper School, our high school serves students in grades 9 to 12.
The student experience includes the completion of the IB Middle Years Program
before students move to the IB Diploma Program in grades 11 and 12.
Students also enjoy two compulsory study abroad trips in grades 9 and 10.
school day and classrooms
The high school starts its day at 8:00 a.m. and classes end at 3:30 p.m.
The student-faculty ratio for high school is around 9:1. High school classes are small, typically having between 12 and 16 students.
All high school classes are held inside the Taurel Building on our Michigan Road campus. For grade 11 and 12 students, the Taurel Building operates with an "open campus" approach, which allows students to leave campus for lunch and other breaks that don't impact classroom attendance.
100% College acceptance
Since the first class to graduate from in 2004, ISI students have annually earned a 100% college acceptance rate.
This success can be linked to the IB Diploma Program curriculum completed by all ISI students in grades 11 and 12. This "gold standard" curriculum thoroughly prepares ISI students to succeed at the college or university of their choice – and 100% of our graduates go on to attend college.
