International School of Toulouse
2 allee de l'Herbaudiere, Rte de Pibrac, 31770 Colomiers, France
With its program based upon the British National Curriculum, IST prepares students for the GCSE/IGCSE and the International Baccalaureate. Instruction places particular emphasis on the creative and sophisticated use of communications technology across the curriculum. Although English is the language of instruction, faculty give a high priority to developing pupils' competence in French to promote academic achievement and increased participation in the global community. Programming provides continuity for children who have attended international schools in the past, as well as for those whose parents are employed with one of the area's multinational corporations. Beginning in grade 6, IST loans laptop computers to all students for classroom use. Also noteworthy is the school's well-regarded music program, which features the use of software that allows students to create and record music simultaneously.
