“I attended elementary school at IST and I believe it provided me with a good foundation to continue on to middle school. IST’s International Baccalaureate and global education curriculum helped me understand the world around me. I learned how to be caring, empathetic, knowledgeable, and much more. While at IST, I was fortunate enough to be in a leadership role which taught me how to guide and help others. I feel my education at IST prepared me well for transitioning into middle school at St. Stephen’s.”
– Addison, Former IST Head Girl, St. Stephen’s Episcopal School

We are proud to say that IST students matriculate into some of the top middle schools both locally and globally. As a school, we prepare our dynamic students for their next step in obtaining a top-tier education; middle school. This process commences as soon as they walk through our doors for the first time. Our balanced program helps to prepare our students for a wide range of schools.

We begin counseling our students and parents in 4th grade to help determine middle schools that fit their educational expectations, as a family. After both students and parents research schools they feel fit this expectation, 4th grade families meet with our head of school and director of admissions to begin the process of matriculation.

While IST has relationships with the top private middle schools in Austin, we encourage families to begin attending open houses as early as possible so families have time to find their best fit. The head of school will also begin working on interview skills for our 5th grade students. Our students actively begin the formal process of matriculation in September of their 5th grade year, by attending open houses and visit days, along with participating in interviews, at their schools of interest. Students will then take the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) in December or January. Most schools will send responses to application toward the beginning of March.

Check out our Grade 2 trailblazers most recent collaborative project!

While exploring the IB transdiciplinary theme of "How We Organize Ourselves", students are inquiring into how people use measurement systems as organizational tools. During this engineering project, students were tasked with designing, measuring, building and improving a dream home for one of their stuffed animals.
