Dear IST community,

On the 23rd of November, 2020, the Estonian Government made a decision to send grades 10-12 students into distance learning in order to bring the spread of the coronavirus under control. The distance learning will start on 30th of November and lasts up until 10th of January, 2021. Students in primary and middle school will continue to attend classes at school until further notice.



The IST has opened Kindergarten (preschool) for ages 4-6 as part of our international study programme. Under the care of an experienced early years IB teacher and well-equipped facilities on the second floor of IST, kids learn through play!

“Our experience is very good! Lisa Parker is just fantastic! We are happy to have her as a teacher; please keep her with us next year. I hope that we will have more fun next year, in the new building and I know that many new kids will join in grade one.”
