Welcome to the ISB Elementary School


We are excited that you have chosen to join the ISB community and we look forward to getting to know you and your child. Please know that we will do everything we can to ensure a smooth transition into the ISB community. If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. You may have transitioned to a new school before ISB, or this may be the first time that you've moved away from home. Either way, exciting times lay ahead. Please know that we have all been new at some point, and everyone understands the challenges associated with a transition such as this.

At ISB success comes in many forms. We offer students a variety of learning experiences in both curricular and extra-curricular settings. We offer a standards-based curriculum that integrates the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century. We believe that students must be the center of their academic journey and we have carefully crafted a reporting process that emphasizes the student as a learner, their strengths, reflection, and academic growth.

To ensure the smoothest possible transition into ISB, we encourage you to attend the new family orientation on Monday, January 6, 2020.

The majority of ISB communication happens via teacher blogs and our online portal, Dragons' Gate. Once you receive your login information, we encourage you to explore the site as there is lots of useful information to be found. You may want to start with the Elementary School Handbook, which can be found under the 'ISB Learning' menu.

We look forward to being a partner in your child's education and to inspiring every child to reach their unique potential.

Student Transition

Student transition is a defining characteristic of international schools. Here at ISB we welcome new students throughout the year, and are sad to see them leave. As parents, it is important to understand the issues that come with moving into a new community, and the importance of surrounding yourself with a strong support network. As counselors, we offer many programs at ISB to aid in the transition process as new students. We offer new student meetings during snack time and provide various Parent Coffee workshops.
We are also happy to provide examples of the vast array of resources and interventions provided by ISB when students come into our classrooms, or when they make the decision to move away. For parents of moving children, parents who have moved in the past, those planning a move, or anyone interested in the phases of transition, we are available to provide the necessary help.
