Dropping Off and Picking Up Your Student

Our number one concern is the safety of your children. Please note that you are not allowed to drive in the bus lane.  The district’s agreement with Metro is that they have a clear bus lane, they need to get in and out of our parking lot in a timely manner.  DO NOT cut through the parking lot as a means to drop off your students, this is unsafe and blocks the parking lot for those who need to park.


Parking is very limited at the International School.  Please only park in the visitor spots located directly in front of the school.  All other spots are assigned to staff and students.  Please do not park in any assigned spots before and during school hours, even if you plan on just being a minute in the school.  If there are not spots you will need to find a legal spot to park on the street.  The streets closest to the school are permit parking only.

Taking the Bus to School

International School uses Metro Transit services.  Click here to see the metro and yellow bus routes that serve International School. The initial issuing of new cards will take place at Back 2 Business day on August 25th.  Students who do not pickup their card on 8/25 can do so in the front office on or after September 1st. During the school year, an ORCA Card administrator visits each school once a week to issue cards. Students will be issued their first ORCA Card each year at no cost.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
