ISR Student Expectations
While not academically selective, ISR does require a great deal of motivation from the student to commit to the rigorous 4-year program, and students are always expected to fully participate in all coursework. We welcome students who love science and math and are willing to work diligently to complete assignments. At every level, ISR will require some work outside of class, but teachers and scientists are available to help you. Students are expected to be active, collaborative learners who will engage in the process of science: formulating questions, developing and testing hypotheses, and presenting results. Additionally, classroom attendance is incredibly important, as it can be difficult to recreate laboratory activities outside of class.
