Welcome

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, inquiry-based 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. Since 1979, ISTP has been educating students through culture and language. We take great pride in our ability to give students the tools needed to richly experience and succeed in the world.
