From Philippe Dietz, Head of School


ISTP is a unique school that uniquely prepares its students for the challenges of an interconnected, 21st century world. Through ISTP’s rigorous French immersion or Chinese immersion (Mandarin) education, our students are able to develop the superior critical thinking abilities and mental flexibility associated with being bilingual. ISTP has over thirty years of experience in sharing cultures and languages. We take great pride in our ability to give students the tools needed to richly experience and succeed in the world.

We would like to welcome you to our new website, which is just one aspect of the exciting innovation occurring at ISTP. From our new renovations at ISTP’s Cohn Campus, to our construction of an integrated media lab and our cutting-edge technology initiatives in the classroom, ISTP has added a spirit of forward-thinking innovation to its already well-established French and Chinese immersion curriculum.
