“We are honored to be chosen to receive this special gift,” said ISL Principal Adierah Berger. “Not only will this be a sentimental occasion, but also a learning one for our students, and a great way to honor those who have served our country.”
The flag was flown over the Gulf Coast on November 7, where it was wrapped and flown in a training mission. The Air National Guard then certified the flag.
ISL (grades K-8) is the first multi-language immersion school chartered by the State of Louisiana. From their first day of school at ISL, students learn core academic subjects in their target language. At ISL, children acquire a second language naturally, through everyday conversation and classroom instruction. In 2007, ISL was named a national “Charter School of the Year” by the Center for Education Reform, the only Louisiana charter school to receive this honor.
