One of ISK’s distinguishing characteristics is its diverse language program. Our Language A (native) program utilizes the national curricula of Poland and France, as well as the IB Language A standards, in order to develop literacy and prepare students for school or university in their home countries. Students of other languages besides Polish and French have opportunities to study their native languages independently or to follow the Language Skill Development sequence, which reinforces the use of English through a variety of themes accessible to both native and non-native speakers.

ISK offers three Language B (foreign) subjects, starting in Grade 3 and continuing through high school: French, German, and Spanish. Foreign Polish is offered in Elementary School, and Polish culture is a component of all elementary social studies classes. English can also be taken as a foreign language for IB students who are relatively new to the language.
