Both of my kids go here and are achieving an amazing education. In addition to robust academics, there is a strong arts and music program. The teachers and administrative staff are smart, caring and involved. We are very happy with our children's critical thinking, problem solving and language skills - ISTP is preparing them to to participate in a worldwide economy. It's a great school.
