International School of Tallinn

IB Candidate School for PYP offering international education in English

The IST at a Glance International School of Tallinn (IST) was founded in 2016 and opened its doors in September 2017. IST is conveniently situated a five-minute walk from the airport and very near to the tram stop. Our school location is Keevise 2. The school owner is Mainor Group, who has provided high-level education since 1992. We have grades 1-8 for the school year 2018-2019, and we will open grades 9-10 in 2019 and grades 11-12 in 2020. We follow the Estonian national curriculum within the framework of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme. Digital options are promoted throughout our education services. This enables us to increase student motivation, use interactive programs and tests, apply a personalized approach, and take into account the results of learning analytics. We hope and trust that we will earn a reputation for excellence in the provision of international education services. The school´s language of instruction is English. The students may choose Russian, German, or French as an additional language. At IST, our aim is to implement cutting-edge learning concepts that cultivate fundamental and problem-solving skills as well as research-based learning, interdisciplinary integration, teamwork, and creativity.

International School of Tallinn is a new school located in Ülemiste City, Tallinn. We are opening our doors in autumn 2017. The developers of Ülemiste City have taken the responsibility to meet the specific needs of our international community. A new school was initiated by Mainor as an addition to on-site educational center in Ülemiste City where one can find also a local kindergarten (Kalli-Kalli), a pre-school (Emili School) and the Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Science. In International School of Tallinn we are serious and glorious at the same time. We believe that every little person must have the opportunity to feel valuable and brilliant so we support that by our activities and care. Because of that our main colours are navy blue as the deep oceans of the real world, which we all are part of. The golden elements present glitter in the eyes of inspired children, when they reach to the doors of our school every morning. The official study language in the school is English. We are starting with Estonian educational programmes but we are aiming to provide IB educational programmes in following years. The International Baccalaureate (IB) is fully recognised across the globe. Apply now and become one of us!

Mission: Our mission is to support the holistic development of every individual to become responsible global citizens and independent life-long learners by providing a rigorous inquiry and multicultural learning environment.

NEWSFLASH

IST has officially become an IB World School!
Our school has been authorized by IBO to offer the Primary Years Program.

This is a significant milestone in the history of IST and it was only possible due to the hard work of all members of staff and the commitment of our students and parents.

After years of dedication to excellence and implementing IB principles, it is a great joy to share this achievement with all IST teachers, students, families and partners. This victory belongs to all of us.

CONGRATULATIONS, EVERYONE!

IST is happy to announce we have recently had new additions to our teaching staff. Today, we would like to introduce you to:

Maarja Jõgi– PE Teacher

"My love for sports started from the age of 5 when my mom took me to gymnastics lessons. Huge curiosity about human body and movement lead me to study Sports Sciences at the University of Tartu, where I also got my masters degree. At university I had a chance to explore different kinds of sports and activities.
I truly believe that the human body is made to move. My goal is to motivate children to move and enjoy sports, because of the goodness it has brought into my life. Sports are also a great way to teach discipline and develop good habits."

Welcome to IST, Maarja!

Continuing to share W.H.O tips for parents during these times, today's tip deals with talking about Covid-19 with your children.

Kids may get curious and anxious about the current situation and parents might find it difficult to explain what's happening in their countries or around the world.
It's a good idea to talk about it: keep it simple, think about how much they can understand at their age, and remember that it's OK if you don't know all the answers.

HACK THE CRISIS

In April, Ms. Tracy Wenzinger shared with our MYP students the opportunity of joining HACK THE CRISIS: an online hackathon to tackle issues arising from the current Covid-19 crisis. IST student Uthman, grade 10, took up the challenge.

"It was very exciting to meet individuals like me who are interested in changing the world as we know it and to see everyone there below the age of 19 was quite inspiring."

Uthman joined a team to develop an idea of his to help solve the physical issues caused by home isolation and excess screen time exposure during this crisis.

"I learnt a lot of useful information about time management which is a problem that greatly impacts my everyday life."

Uthman and his team have started working on the idea with some schools in Estonia and Swedbank, and are expecting to develop a prototype very soon. This is not his first time: in 2019, Uthman joined the Garage 48 Hackathon hosted by IST and his team won one of the top prizes! (photo below)

We are very happy to see this kind of forward thinking and entrepreneurial mindset, Uthman!
IST could not be more proud!

Having to spend this school break indoors, unable to travel or engage in other activities, is certainly quite frustrating. One thing that might help is to keep a structured routine for the kids.

Have a look at the following tips from the W.H.O. and come up with a daily routine for your little ones. Don't forget to find some time for yourself!

Teenage students can come up with their own routine, which might include catching up to their school projects or simply taking time off. Just make sure they follow through and encourage them to add reading time and other "screen-free" activities.

99 Math Tournament

Last Thursday, our pupils participated in a mathematics competition through 99math, an online game designed for students to practice math by playing with friends. All students did a great job and received a certificate. Some students made it to the top 3 in their group and receive additional certificates and prizes. Great job!

We would like to thank the 99math team for coming to our school to organize this competition, and our teachers and 7-10 grade students for helping throughout the game. To all pupils who participated: we are proud of you!

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!
