The International School

For almost 30 years, The International School (TIS) has been educating future global citizens through its unique blend of full language immersion, dynamic academics, and warm, multicultural community.  It is the only school in the United States to provide a true immersion experience in Chinese, Japanese, or Spanish under one roof.

TIS was the first school in the Pacific Northwest authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP), 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.

The International School’s professional faculty and staff hail from over 17 countries. They – along with small class sizes – provide a loving, multicultural environment that engages students in academics and the arts. They educate approximately 420 students in preschool through 5th grade.
