International School of Boston Reviews

The International School of Boston is very academically-oriented, which has its pros and cons. This means the teachers are very engaging and push the students to fulfill their full potential, yet the school lacks extracurriculars and clubs including athletics, and in turn school spirit. Overall, ISB is a great place for college readiness and for those favoring small, tight-knit classes.

When I went to ISB the math and english department were always so slow at teaching the material! I often felt bored and wasn't being pushed to my full potential. The work load is close to none. The teachers actually cared about you except taught too slowly in my opinion.
The International School is a small school that helps me get the education I need and want. The classes are small, so the teachers are able to focus on you, and you become close to everyone. One thing I wish would change would be the diversity. Not many people of color are at the school, whether it be students or faculty. But other than that, it is a loving environment.
