Learning Support Programme
The International School of Estonia (ISE) opened in September of 1995 with 22 students and has grown to approximately 130 students. It includes a Preschool section (ages three and four), Reception, and grades 1 to 12. The school is operated as a non-profit foundation run by a Board of Directors which is elected by the parent body. The school is fully recognized by the government of the Republic of Estonia. The ISE is a fully authorized IB PYP, and Diploma school. The International School of Estonia is fully accredited by CIS (Council of International Schools) and NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges).
The comprehensive academic program is based on Anglo-American standards. The current curriculum includes English, ESL, mathematics, science, social studies, computer technology, art, music, foreign languages (French and German), Estonian, library skills, intensive Estonian (for Estonian passport holders) and physical education. Upper level classes also take world history and cultural history. The faculty is composed of highly qualified educators, some with advanced degrees and experience from around the world. The school recognizes the teaching of English as a Second Language as an integral part of all teachers' responsibilities. The school has a fully trained Learning Resource Teacher on staff and accepts students with mild to moderate learning disabilities.
The school moved, in summer 2000, to a large building which provides a gymnasium, cafeteria, eighteen station computer room, laboratory, and is surrounded by outdoor playing areas. All students have access to hot lunches at a reasonable rate.
The student body is drawn primarily from Scandinavian, Western European, and North American families who are in Estonia for business or diplomatic assignments. Admission is open to all students of appropriate age, without regard to race, nationality, religion, or first language, who could benefit from the education offered, and for whom the school can provide a suitable education. School is in session for 180 days from late August to June. The school day extends from 08: 45 to 15: 30. There is an optional after-school activity program.
