About our Campus:

Our ISL Jefferson Campus is located in Jefferson Parish at 8101 Simon St. Metairie, LA 70003. Tucked away in the quaint Bunche Village neighborhood, it boasts a spacious facility. This allows teachers and staff plenty of space to conduct outdoor activities and provide academic support in an ideal setting throughout the campus.

Our facility includes an indoor gymnasium, an outdoor basketball court, and a spacious field area where our students can enjoy recreational activities and our community and parents participate in our events. Students and parents have access to a sweet library space where they can read and check out French and Spanish language books, as well as English language material and books.
