Tucson International School
February 6, 2011
We have been at IST for four years and couldn't be happier. The program is exciting for the children and academically demanding. But they don't notice the demands because they are enjoying what they are doing so much. They are learning another language and they have friends and teachers from all over the world. The teachers are excellent and all three principals are just wonderful. The preschool principal and junior school principal are just wonderful. They know the children and they are always available to parents. IST also has lots of clubs from chess to basketball to science to piano and guitar. We want our children to be happy, and to have fun, and to be academically challenged. IST gives all this and more.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My children love going to school, and they are better behaved and know more than the children of my friends. But more importantly, they love learning and doing new things and meeting new people. They also have wide interests and can skills and interests which will last their whole lives.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
IST needs funds for new buildings and to purchase their campus. If I could, I would help them with this. They also need funds to subsidize fees so that they can pay teachers more without annual fee increases.
Volunteer & I participate in the parents' association and go to every school event.
