Full-Language Immersion Classes Pre-Kindergarten through Elementary
Values for a Global Society.
The School's philosophy and pedagogical approaches encourage students to investigate topics without being restricted by traditional compartmentalization or methods of instruction, and thus allow the learner to develop global understanding. The thorough teaching of fundamentals also constitutes an essential element of the curriculum.
The International School of Tucson operates an August – May school year, divided into two semesters with a four-week Winter Break, an eight-week Summer Break and a one-week break (Fall Break and Spring Break) approximately in the middle of each semester.
IST also recognises a number of different holidays, festivals and national celebrations throughout the year as an important element of our co-curricular programme. These events are not mandatory and are held outside the teaching day to allow parents and friends to attend; some occur in the evening. However be warned - food is inevitably an important element of each event.
