The International School of Tucson is a pre-Kindergarten to 8th grade school with a strong language programme and a full-immersion preschool. It is a genuinely international school with 34 full-time staff from all over the world and 180+ children enrolled in one of four programmes (French, German, Spanish or Chinese) for language and culture, while Math, Science, Art and Music curricula are taught... in English.
Ours is a young, dynamic school with strong international academic standards accredited by Cambridge Assessment International Education; we are one of 10,000 schools in 160 countries using the Cambridge curriculum to prepare our students for their future as citizens of the world.
IST is operated by a non-profit organisation and is a private, independent school in order to protect its vision, educational independence and international values. We ensure a diverse student population by keeping fees as low as possible and granting tuition assistance or raising scholarships for over half of our students.
IST also has a small on-site nursery with about forty under-3s to which faculty and staff have priority admittance.
