Did You Know?

Between 5th and 8th grades, our Upper School students spend a total of 24 days abroad.

The cultural and language travel experiences at ISD are a special part of the school, and their impact transcends well beyond the few weeks that the students are in another country.

Classrooms Without Walls


International School of Denver students are at home in Colorado and around the world.

ISDenver is the only elementary school in metro Denver that takes students on international trips. Our students’ world travels and shorter treks throughout their home state reinforce our commitment to developing globally minded and interculturally adept students who make positive contributions in our world.

Geology

Ski Trips

This provides third grade students an opportunity to spend time with students in all language programs.

Field Trips

Our school believes in the power of experiential learning that takes students well outside the bounds of the classroom. All students are invited to participate in multiple off-campus trips each school year. Popular destinations include the Denver Art Museum, the Denver Zoo, local farms, international food markets, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.


Keystone Science School

ISDenver 4th graders from all language programs travel together to the Keystone Science School (KSS) for one week of intensive science instruction in English. Led by Keystone faculty, the students learn about water conservation, forest and aquatic ecology and environmental issues.

Breckenridge Outdoor Education

ISDenver 6th grade students spend the first full week of school at the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center. The purpose of this trip is to bond our sixth grade cohort together, participate in team building activities, introduce students to the IB Learner Profile and review expectations for the MYP. Activities during these four days include hiking, rock climbing, ropes courses, canoeing and team building games.
