Welcome to The International School of Denver (ISDenver), a vibrant and globally-minded community that has been shaping young minds since 1977. Located in Lowry, Denver, this private multicultural, multilingual school offers a unique educational journey for students from age 3 through grade 8. At the core of ISDenver's identity is its commitment to diversity and language immersion. The school provides a truly global learning experience where students, from pre-K to 8th grade, are immersed in either French, Spanish, or Chinese. Learning in and through these languages, students are taught by native speakers that are accredited by ministries of education in France and Spain, and by the Hanban in China. Sixth through eighth grade middle school is an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School implementing the Middle Years Programme (MYP), an interdisciplinary, project-based learning program with a focus on global context and impact. All curricula meet the Colorado State Standards, and are enhanced by both local and international travel opportunities.
Committed to cultural immersion and developing globally-minded and interculturally adept students , the International School of Denver is the only elementary school in metro Denver that takes students on international trips. These initiatives, along with test preparation courses for language proficiency tests, highlight ISDenver's dedication to providing a comprehensive and immersive education.
Beyond ISDenver's focus on language, it sets a high bar for academic excellence. Using MAP testing to assess students in grades 3–8 in mathematics and reading, the school consistently outperforms peers nationally and internationally. Graduates continue their education at top schools, with 100% gaining admission to one of their top two choices.
