Who is Parent Connect?
The San Diego High School of International Studies (IS) is an award-winning IB World School. While the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program is one of the best college-prep curriculums in the world,
it is expensive and not fully funded by the San Diego Unified School District. Additional support is needed
to cover the costs of IB teacher training, IB testing fees, IB textbooks, and supplies as the district does
not provide funding for these essential items.
As a nonprofit, every dollar raised through our annual fundraiser or donations made in any form, at any time,
goes toward providing the critical support San Diego High School IB Program needs to ensure student success.
Parent Connect Mission
The mission of the Parent Connect Foundation is to support students and programs at the San Diego High
School of International Studies. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, incorporated by the state of California
in 2013, which allows us be more effective in our mission.
All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law (Federal Tax ID number 46-3472051).
Parent Connect also operates as a fiscal sponsor for funds raised for the Towler Scholarship.
