Entertainment includes an original Contemporary Dance performance by the Storytellers Dance Project choreographed especially for ISL Gala Patrons and live musical performances by Kristen Taffaro and Christopher Holder. Event proceeds help underwrite the Enrichment Programs at the International School of Louisiana, a tuition-free public charter school providing a language immersion education in French and Spanish. ISL has three campuses: Uptown, Westbank, and Jefferson Parish.
Named a National “Charter School of the Year” by the Center for Education Reform, the International School of Louisiana is the only tuition-free, multi-language immersion school in Louisiana. Students at ISL are introduced to the world’s rich cultural heritage through a rigorous and expansive education taught in French or Spanish. At ISL children learn a second language naturally, through everyday conversation and classroom instruction. With its emphasis on international awareness, the celebration of diversity and community responsibility, ISL's unique curriculum strengthens basic academic skills as it prepares students for success in today's worldwide marketplace.
