Parking a student car on International’s campus is a privilege. To gain and maintain this privilege a student must register his or her car in the office, obtain a parking permit, and drive safely! Parking permits cost $100.00 per year. Students who purchase a parking pass may also have an ORCA Card, provided that they qualify for an ORCA card by living outside the school’s walk boundary.

Parking permits will be assigned by grade beginning with Seniors, followed by Juniors and then Sophomores through the application process. If there are more applications than spaces, a lottery will be held for Juniors followed by Sophomores. Once capacity is reached, a waiting list will be established and maintained by the school. If a student is unable to obtain a parking permit, they must park off-campus in a legal parking area.  Public transportation is also encouraged.

Students with a valid parking permit will be assigned one numbered parking space. During the hours of 6:30 AM – 4:00 PM all staff and visitor parking areas are off limits to students. Additional restrictions in staff areas may occur during school events.


To request a parking permit:

  • Complete the application by Friday, June 3. Students need to complete the application using their school computer. The application will require students to upload a copy of their driver’s license and proof of insurance.
  • Students and guardians must sign the IS Parking Guidelines.  An image of the signed Guidelines must also be included with the submitted applications.
  • Students who receive a parking permit will be notified prior to the last day of school (6/22/21). Students who receive a parking pass will be able to select their spot before the start of school in August. Payment for the parking permit will be collected at that time.
  • Students who receive their license over the summer will have an opportunity to request a parking spot in the fall–provided there is availability.
