Yesterday Grade 8 students set up a mock trial with a case against Joseph Stalin for the crimes against the Intellectual part of the Soviet Union in 1937. The performance was the summative work for the unit: "How are people governed?" for Individuals and Societies class.

Our Story

The International School of Tallinn is a new school located in Ülemiste City, Tallinn.

We opened our doors in autumn 2017.

Ülemiste City, a fast-developing smart city in every sense of the word, is attracting people from many parts of Europe and beyond who sees Estonia as a hub of opportunity. This is one of the reasons why the owners of the International School of Tallinn decided to establish an international school in the Ülemiste City District where one can also find a local kindergarten (Kalli-Kalli), a private Estonian school (Emili School) and the Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Sciences.

The International School of Tallinn (IST) offers international education in English from Grade 1 to Grade 8 and now also Preschool for 4 to 6-year-old students. The school´s language of instruction is English while Russian, German, Estonian or French is chosen as an additional language.

IST is an IB Candidate School for PYP (Primary Years Programme). We will introduce Grades nine and ten during the 2019/2020 school year and grades eleven and twelve the following year.

At the International School of Tallinn we believe that every little person must have the opportunity to feel valuable and brilliant so we support this through our activities and care.

We are open for new applications throughout the year!
