- Support IST
Yes, this is a little facetious as we saw our first graduate in May 2011. (Our first planned promotion will occur in May 2013.) However, he did gain entry to his first-choice Middle School.
Tucson has few good Middle School programmes from which to choose; many Tucson parents do not realise this, nor that places in the better schools are limited. The over-riding concern in choosing a Middle School should of course be which programme is best for your child, and for your family, according to the resources you have available.
(Actually, we recommend starting the process considering a Middle School in mid-third grade as the enrolment process can begin during the second semester of fourth grade.)
IST is a PK - G5 school and Middle School preparation is embedded in our Junior School programme. Our goal is that IST graduates will be in a position to choose where they go next rather than being chosen. In 2011, 100% of our graduates enrolled in their first choice middle schools.
