The International School
025 SW Sherman Street, Portland, OR 97201
For over 27 years, The International School has
been educating future global citizens through
its unique blend of full language immersion,
dynamic academics, and warm, multicultural
community. Students are immersed in Spanish,
Japanese or Chinese while receiving a comprehensive education through their inquiry-based
International Baccalaureate curriculum.
Rather than working through a standard
lesson and memorizing facts, students explore
central themes and develop their own questions as they apply concepts and skills from a
variety of subjects. Through this collaborative,
constructivist approach, children gain deep
understanding and learn the skills needed to
acquire, organize, and communicate knowledge – both in English and in fluent Chinese,
Spanish, or Japanese.
The International School’s professional
faculty hail from over 17 countries. They –
along with small class sizes – provide a loving,
multicultural environment that engages
students in academics and the arts. The
school educates approximately 450 students
in preschool through 5th grade. Students may
start in preschool or kindergarten without
prior target language experience.
