Who we are: The International School of Boston (ISB) is an independent, non-profit, Preschool-12 French-English bilingual and international school located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in one of the most vibrant metropolitan areas in the United States.

In the ISB Way…
Each student is continually challenged but unconditionally loved.
Mastering a language other than one’s own is a way to find success and fulfillment in a global world.
Differences in a student’s ethnicity or socioeconomic background are reasons for celebration, not alienation.
Daily achievement is measured not only by test scores, but also by a student’s capacity to relate to other citizens of the world.
