Dedicated to cultural diversity and global awareness, ISL (grades K-8) is the only multi-language immersion school chartered by the State of Louisiana. From their first day of school, students are taught core academic subjects in either French or Spanish by native speaking teachers. At ISL children learn a second language naturally, through everyday conversation and classroom instruction. Committed to breaking down barriers in public education by teaching children to embrace diversity in their community, ISL is dedicated to providing all of its students with a unique and high-quality education and to helping young people develop, not only as students but also as community leaders and global citizens. 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. School website: www.isl-edu.org
