International School of Tallinn
The International School of Tallinn (IST) is committed to provide a high-quality international education. The language of instruction at the school is English across all subjects.
The school is aiming to provide a full cycle of learning continuum by opening classes at every year level for 3-18 years pupils. Currently Grades 1-6 are opened at IST for 6-12 years old pupils and an international group of 2-4 years old kids at our associated kindergarten Kalli-Kalli.
In school year 2018/2019 the IST will open Grades 7-8 (for 13-14 years old students) and the kindergarten (serving as a preschool for IST) will open an international group of 5-6 years old kids. Thereafter all next classes (Grades 9-12 for 15-18 years old pupils) will be opened in coming years.
The IST was established with a purpose of providing the IB (International Baccalaureate) programmes at all year levels: PYP (Primary Years Programme), MYP (Middle Years Programme) and DP (Diploma Programme). Although we are initially based on national standards, the school is aiming to apply for candidacy and authorisation of each IB programme according to the opening of subsequent year levels. The International Baccalaureate (IB) enables a smooth continuum of learning across the world and is globally recognised as an entry route to university.
At the International School of Tallinn, we believe that every child must feel valued and believe themselves gifted. We nurture these beliefs through our first-rate care and activities.
We hold the idea that we are all an intrinsic part of our world and this is expressed through main colours of our school’s logo: navy blue, the colour of our deepest oceans and gold, which mirrors the shining eyes of our inspired children as they are welcomed into school each day.
