How to Think

At the International School of Arizona, your child won’t be memorizing facts, taking useless notes or doing mind numbing homework.   Instead, our students experience international educators and experienced specialists working along side them, benefiting from small class sizes, teaching them how to think, not what to think.   Our team of professionals continually study the proven advantages of multilingual academics through scientific advancements and extensive research, and our students thrive in a safe, nurturing environment.
