From The International School

For our children, a world of possibilities awaits. If we are to send them out to explore beyond the bounds of our neighborhoods, we must prepare them for the journey.

For over 30 years, The International School has been helping to guide and prepare today’s generation of explorers for the challenges of tomorrow.

*We’re the only school in the U.S. to provide full immersion in Chinese, Japanese, or Spanish under one roof.

*We were Portland's first International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) school, which promotes strategic thinking skills and hands-on engagement, rather than memorization and passive learning. This instills a true love of learning within children, and equips them to pursue knowledge throughout life.

Our small classes and international faculty provide a warm, multicultural environment that engages students in academics and the arts. We educate approximately 400 students in preschool through 5th grade.
