International Spanish Academy (ISA)
The International Spanish Academy (ISA) is a highly-developed, active-engagement dual language immersion course of study. Schools with the ISA have a formal relationship with the Ministry of Education and Culture in Madrid, Spain. ISA students will be taught by international teachers with an emphasis on community learning groups and conversation. At the elementary level (grades K-5), students are instructed 50% of their school day in Spanish and 50% in English. At the middle and high school levels, two classes are conducted entirely in Spanish. The goal of the ISA is to promote and develop bilingual skills in speaking, reading and writing Spanish and English. A requirement for participation in the ISA is a willingness to learn new perspectives, sounds and cultural aspects.
