The International School of Estonia offers education for children aged 3 to 19. Its curriculum is based on the programs of the International Baccalaureate Organization and taught in the English language. We are an accredited institution by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and by the Council of International Schools (CIS)

The International School of Estonia has a long history of accreditation and authorization. The school was initially accredited by CIS and NEASC 14 years ago, in 2007. Authorisations from the IBO for curricular programmes go further back however, having been granted in 2002 for the PYP, 2004 for the DP, and 2017 for the MYP. Accreditation and authorization with IB, CIS and NEASC has been continuous since those dates. The most recent full accreditation event was a CIS/NEASC/IBO synchronized visit in April 2017 and the School started the re accreditation processes with a CIS/NEASC Preparatory Evaluation in December of 2021 (0P1.16 2021 ISE Prep Eval Report).
