Internationally Minded

Building meaningful and rewarding relationships

Several years ago the IST community came together to draft a new philosophy statement that would justly reflect our beliefs and values about education as an international community living here in our wonderful host city of Tianjin. Without question, the defining quality - as reported by students, parents, and staff alike - was the warm, friendly community feeling of the school, of ‘our’ school.

We are proud of our culture of inclusion and of international mindedness and warmth, and consequently decided to reflect this in the leading sentence of our new philosophy statement: “Our school is a friendly place where the needs of the students come first.”

Welcome to our school, and to our community!
