ISB was excited to open four of our brand-new facilities in our 40th Anniversary year – an Elementary School (ES) Arts Center and Theater, a Middle School (MS)/High School (HS) Performing Arts Center, a Middle School/High School Art and Design Center, and our Early Years Learning Community. All four of these new facilities have been designed to ensure we continue to live our Mission and Vision, while ensuring the highest safety standards for our whole community.
