ISL has two language immersion schools in Orleans Parish, offering Spanish and French immersion for grades K-8. ISL consistently ranks as one of Louisiana’s highest-performing, open admissions charter school, according to state test-score rankings.

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.
