International School of Beaverton - High School Reviews
Rating 3.61 out of 5 139 reviews
I greatly enjoyed my time at ISB. I attended this school from 6th to 10th grade. The community is small, but the students all want to learn and the teachers want to help.
I've had a great experience. Teachers are supportive and knowledgeable. Great preparation for college.
I like that the students at ISB are generally welcoming and nice. The faculty is pretty great. Most of them seem to genuinely care about their students, even if they are strict. A lot of my peers are smart and take academics very seriously, or at least try to get the best grades they can get while putting in the least amount of effort. The student body is pretty diverse, and most people really find it cool if you know another language. There are some amazing go-getters who are in student council. The people who might be considered "popular kids" are usually nice and smart, too, especially in the higher grade levels. The curriculum can be extremely difficult at times, and it's honestly a bit hard to get any one-on-one time with most of the teachers. In terms of the building size, it'd be great if it was larger to accommodate for all 6 of the grade levels. There also aren't a lot of extracurricular activities or meaningful clubs.
I attended the international school of Beaverton from 6th to 12th grade. Overall, it was an incredible experience that has shaped me into who I am today. At ISB you truly create a family and the staff here is incredibly supportive of you and your future goals.
People are kind and very excepting and welcoming of everyone. Teacher's are great and helpful. There's enough time in class to review and work on the new lesson.
This school definitely pushes you to do your best and they prep you really well for the IB exams. The staff is great and the school community is very open-minded
My experience at the International School of Beaverton has been one to remember. Having been here since sixth grade, I have growth and developed immensely at this school over the years. I have been continuously challenged and pushed here, and would generally recommend my experience and there school to anyone ready to work hard and learn.
The best thing about the International School of Beaverton besides their option of the IB Diploma Program was the small community that each class has. Generally the class sizes for each a grade are smaller which makes it easier to create a great sense of community and friendships among classmates. Due to the small population of the school, faculty really get a chance to know who you are and its great when you need someone to talk to about anything that you have going on in your personal or academic life. They are also very supportive in the academic career that you choose to pursue and the willingness to help you is comforting, especially when going through the rigorous IB Diploma Program. Another great thing about this school is its willingness to learn and understand different cultures within their curriculum and in their school events and activities.
I like that it is a small school with attentive teachers who are here to make sure we all have the best chance to get our IB diplomas. That said, the majority of the school is occupied by the middle schoolers who definitely disrupt the high school environment.
It was a good school. Academics are incredibly difficult but the school prepares you for college. Most of the teachers are cool.
My school is very academic-focused. Since 6th grade we are told about the IB program and how to prepare. Our school is rated the second-best in the state and is constantly regarded as one of the best in the area. That said, we also use an old elementary school, for example, our band room is two old kindergarten rooms. Half of our classes are in portables that are outside the school, and another quarter is in modules (a building built right next to our school). Our school is very much outdated. The school community is decently strong, without ANY high school sports at our school there is little to rally behind but most find comfort in their friends and others. I can say with confidence that our dances are enjoyed by students, mostly because since we are a smaller school that they can enjoy it with their friends more. The students are very diverse, I don't think that white students are the majority, but almost all teachers are white. Overall, the school is very good, a solid 4.5/5.
Going to this school for my whole middle and high school year was very entertaining. I'm not kidding if I said this school is very challenging but that is what makes it fun. This school is very academic , especially a lot of writing. I like this school very much although I hate it at the same time. I like this school because it's a small community and it's very international, meaning the ethnicity in this school is very international and I also love the school events and the teachers are pretty awesome there. Although some changes can be more clubs with a sport team since we're an option school we don't have a team, and just more bigger schools events.
It’s been approximately two years since I’ve joined ISB. Overall I would say that the school is quite friendly but only to an extent. Although going into the school, I felt like I was unprepared. Upon arriving at ISB I wasn’t given any information on what to do. Since the majority of the students have been there since middle school, it was hard for new comers like I had been to find my way around the school. I often felt left out, sometimes either ignored.
This school is not very good. I did not really like my time at the school. Overall teachers were helpful and nice, with the exception of a few teachers.
I appreciate getting a better, more intense method of education through the IB diploma, as well as the smaller size that lets the teachers become more personal with the students. However, the school building is subpar, as the former elementary school building can barely contain the students that are registered for the classes.
It was a difficult stressful experience going to one of the top schools in the US and 2nd best in oregon. The experiences certainly outweighed the workload reccomended for students looking for a challenge
It was a school filled with dedicated teachers, but who were underfunded and overworked. The curriculum was challenging, but (mostly) interesting. I would have liked to see our school district properly fund our school, but this was no fault of the school.
