The International School of Tucson (IST) is located near the University of Arizona, in Tucson. Our school offers an internationally-based and internationally-grounded bilingual programme of instruction in Chinese / English, French / English, German / English and Spanish / English. The School's philosophy and approaches encourage students to investigate topics without being restricted by traditional compartmentalisation or methods of instruction, and thus allow the learner to develop global understanding.
IST accepts students at the beginning of the semester in which they turn three and if they are fully potty-trained. Most students enter in August, although mid-semester entry is also possible. Our Pre-School classes (Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten) offer full-immersion Chinese, French, German and Spanish. Our dual-immersion Junior School (Elementary) offers French, German and Spanish with other languages possible; Junior School students typically take English as one of their two first languages.
An international faculty ensures that languages are taught by native speakers who are also able to transmit their cultures, values, information and beliefs.
