Our students from grades 10, 11, and 12 participated in the 'Klassiõhtu Tallinna moodi' dance competition! 💃🕺 They dedicated themselves to learning two beautiful ballroom dances – the passionate rumba and the elegant foxtrot.

This fantastic project focused on integrating students from high schools in Tallinn with diverse language backgrounds. 🌍 The aim was to promote:
▪ Joint activities among students of different nationalities
▪ The development of new contacts and friendships
▪ Greater interest in the languages of their partners.

In three Tallinn schools, high school students enjoyed ballroom dancing lessons, learning the basic steps of two different dances. 🎶 The finals took place this Friday, where students showcased their skills and what they learned during the dance sessions. 🏆

The jury, selected by trainers and consisting of students from all participating schools, judged for the titles of the best dancing girl and boy! 👫🕊️

A huge congratulations to our outstanding students Isabella and Elliot for securing 3rd place! 🥉🎉 💫

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!
