Junior/Middle School Clubs & Extracurricular Activities
While the main focus of IST is on academics and language, we strive to help our children be well-rounded individuals. We have many activities available to our Junior/Middle School students during lunch and after school.
Activities such as choir, Zumba, yoga, STEM, and sports are available after school for an additional cost. All children in junior and middle school may participate. Enrollment is based on availability. Check back soon for the 2016-17 school year schedule!
Individual 20 minute lessons are offered every morning in piano, violin, guitar, percussion, recorder, flute and voice. Students may take lessons once a week, three times per week or five times per week. Lesson slots are 20 minutes long, with the intention that multiple short lessons will compensate for the inevitable lack of practice. There are four different time slots available: 7:00 am, 7:25 am, and 7:50 am. Lessons are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
We believe that Tucson is a classroom and are constantly amazed at the wealth of resources Tucson has to offer. Junior School/Middle School classes take approximately two to three trips each year. Each trip has a clear pedagogical purpose and is in some way related to the current topics the children are learning .
