PROSPECTIVE FAMILIES

The International School of Louisiana (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 do not need to have any experience in French or Spanish; ISL does not require pre-admissions testing for Kindergarten students.
  • Students who would like to join ISL for 1st grade are not required to speak French or Spanish if they join ISL’s 1st grade at the beginning of the school year; students who wish to transfer into 1st grade after September 1 must demonstrate the appropriate level of Target Language (French or Spanish) proficiency.
  • 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.

CURRENT ISL FAMILIES

We are excited to announce our new online student information system powered by InfoSnap!  The system is a secure and green process, which allows families to update all student demographic, emergency and medical information.  The system will also allow you to electronically sign your students’s annual permission forms.

Parent’s should have received an email which contains a unique and secure “snapcode” along with instructions to input your student’s information. For families with more than one child in the school system, once you fill out basic information for your first child, common fields will“autofill,” saving you time.

Existing ISL Families who have not received a unique id code, please email Data Support. 

New 2017-18 ISL Families (as of August 2017) New ISL families filled out their contact information via infosnap during registration.  Families will receive instructions at the end of the current school year to update your information for the upcoming 2018-19 School year.
