The International School of the Americas or ISA, is a fantastic institution that builds students into community leaders who are driven by a passion to investigate the world. The three defining characteristics of ISA would be its culture, its curriculum, and its travel experiences. I would describe the culture at ISA as disruptively original, everyone is encouraged to be 100% themselves. The curriculum is focused on global learning with the purpose of teaching students to examine different perspectives and building empathy. Lastly the travel experiences are tied into the core of the curriculum to provide real world experiences that support what is learned at school. I am so grateful for going to this school and I know I am a better person and learner because of it.

I love the community, the travel experiences, and the globality. Great mission and great support. The teachers tend to be very good and passionate. The counselors are really incredible this year (2018-2019) and have done a wonderful job dealing with schedules, college applications and other needs. The senior counselor, Mrs. Moyer, is spectacular. ISA is not as diverse as it could be, although that has been improving over the past. As a senior, I felt relatively well prepared for college. MUNSA is an awesome experience and there's lots of volunteer opportunities.
My experience at the International School of the Americas has been great so far. The teachers have great communication with students and are always there to help us. What I really like about ISA is the how every year we travel to different state based on what we're learning that year. Freshmen year we travel to Arkansas and learn how other countries deal with poverty. Sophomore year we travel to New Mexico and learn about assimilation and acculturation within tribes from all over the year. Junior year we travel to Alabama and learn more about the Civil Rights Movement, which is by far my favorite trip ever. And Senior year we fly to Washington D.C. and learn more about politics and get to see the important landmarks like Lincoln Memorial. ISA is a great school, and I'm very thankful to be graduating from this school.
