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 usually takes place during out Back to Business Day in August; this year new cards were mailed to students’ homes in late Fall.  Students who did not receive a card by mail can request one at school when they come back for in-person classes. 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.
