Part of what makes ISB such a warm, caring and successful community is that so many people contribute to school life. Financial gifts are one important way that everyone – parents, alumni, faculty, staff and friends around the world – can give back to help the school continue to grow and improve.

Thank you for your interest, and for helping us build a stronger ISB!

Our 2018-19 Annual Report

As we look back at the 2018-19 school year, we are reminded of the journey we took together as a community around the poignant question: “What should school be for?”  This question helped to define our year of reflection and growth and offered us opportunities to celebrate the many ways that support from our community has had a positive impact on the lives and learning of our students.
