- 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. The majority of successful applicants are students who have previously attended a language immersion school or a school in a country where French or Spanish is the official language.
- Admission into Kindergarten through 8th Grade is based on a lottery system and availability.
