IYRS is actively enrolling for Spring 2022 and Fall 2022 programs for in-person, hands-on learning. The safety of our school community is our priority. Full vaccination is required for students, faculty, and staff.  At this time, masks are required in our classrooms and shops. We regularly monitor and update our safety protocols based on guidance from the state of Rhode Island and the CDC.


Please contact Admissions with any questions HERE. We look forward to welcoming you to IYRS!
