The International School of Arizona is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) school located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Our mission is to provide a progressive international education and advanced multilingual academics in a safe, diverse, and nurturing environment.
Our diverse community is made up of like-minded, multicultural parents who understand that high academic standards, a small school with a family atmosphere, and fluency in multiple languages are elements that offer the greatest value to their children in the short and the long term. Many of our families come from various national, ethnic and religious groups. Others are monolingual Americans who understand the great gift they are offering their children. Our families develop incredibly strong bonds across this diversity.
The student population ranges from 18 months (PK1) through Grade 8. From PK1 through Grade 5, parents select either the French Program or the Spanish Program, where the majority of the day is taught in the target language. We welcome new students with minimal French or Spanish fluency to all levels.
In our International Honors Middle School, Grades 6-8, we offer an honors level International Curriculum with Advanced Foreign Language for students who wish to excel in academics, receive intensive language instruction by native speaking teachers, and socialize with students from the U.S. and other countries. The Middle School curriculum is 70% English and 30% French, Spanish, or Mandarin.
Middle School students wishing to continue with Advanced French may follow our French Curriculum, which is structured on the French Ministry of Education Middle School accreditation standards. Our Middle School graduates are well prepared for the best college preparatory and International Baccalaureate high schools in the USA and beyond.
