Welcome to the International School of Beaverton! This website will provide you with a variety of information about our school.
The International School of Beaverton aims to encourage students to learn through an international lens as thoughtful, compassionate world citizens. We actively embrace intellectual rigor, intercultural respect, service to our local and world communities, and the promise of a peaceful world. In addition, the school promotes a challenging international education program with rigorous assessments recognized around the world.
ISB is an options program for students in grades 6-12 offering the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program and the Diploma Program. The International Baccalaureate Program is a rigorous, standardized curriculum framework taught worldwide. At ISB, all students study World Languages including Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish. Students also experience regular intercultural sessions focused on international topics presented by international visitors and faculty/community members. International perspectives and critical thinking skills are emphasized and promoted throughout the rigorous curriculum. In addition, students are required to conduct individual research, engage in inquiry into the theory and nature of knowledge, and to participate in community service and action projects. The Middle Years Program at ISB will prepare students for the Diploma Program, which is a rigorous pre-university course of studies, leading to examinations, that meets the needs of highly motivated secondary school students.
Like all other options programs, busing is provided. Starting Monday, October 24, 2016, applications for the 2017-2018 school year will be accepted for incoming 6th-12th grade students residing within the Beaverton School District boundaries.
