ISL is a tuition-free public charter school.  We invite you to apply for a seat at ISL and join our diverse and exciting community!


Applicants for Kindergarten and 1st grade are required to pass a language readiness screening in their native language before they are eligible to attend ISL.  Prospective students in Grades 2nd through 8th will be admitted only if they are appropriately experienced in their language of study and successfully pass an entrance exam in the target language (French or Spanish).  Applicants for grades 2-8 must be able to read, write, speak, and understand grade-level material in their target language.  Admission into Kindergarten through 8th Grade is based on a lottery system and availability.
