International Spanish Academy (ISA)
International Spanish Academies (ISA) are Dual Language programs that have signed a collaborative agreement with the Ministry of Education of Spain. This K–12 educational program is carried out within the framework of cooperative activities organized by the Office of Education of Spain in the U.S. and each participating district. The language, history, and culture of Spanish speaking countries are a major focus of the curriculum. All students applying to this program must receive an eligible score on a Spanish assessment test.
We at Okeeheelee Middle School have established a program, “The International Spanish Academy,” to provide children a course of study for the acquisition of both English and Spanish. Our teachers are committed to the creation of proficient bilingual students through a profound multicultural classroom experience. Our Spanish / English immersion program is research based on extensive meaningful hands-on activities encouraging our student's participation. It is our plan to have a positive impact on the workforce of Palm Beach County by increasing the number of potential employees who are bilingual and biliterate.
