Why IST?

1. Our students are extraordinary. They work hard, they persevere, they are motivated and they succeed.

2. We provide incredible opportunities for after school activities and service learning. Students lead initiatives and tackle huge goals, both personal as well as to benefit society worldwide.

3. We believe all students are able to achieve and we offer a wide range of support. We have a complete learning support department, we hire experienced EAL teachers and we help academically strong students to reach farther to increase their understanding of complex concepts.

4. We help students develop skills that have relevance across the school curriculum and beyond such as working with others, managing time and tasks, managing state of mind and managing goals. At IST, students refine their approach to learning.
