International Studies Learning Center High School is a very small school but beneficial. The teachers are really helpful! Though I wish I could have been more informed with information about college and plans for the future, I’m glad I went to that school. You’re able to be you.

My experience at International Studies Learning Center in South Gate, CA has honestly been the best. Ever since I joined ISLC in sixth grade they’ve had me on the track for college. From learning note taking tips to helping me on my college applications and FAFSA. I can truly say they want their students to go to college and succeed. At first, I thought ISLC was a bit excessive because of their graduation requirements. Our requirements are 120 hours of community service, 120 for internship, a Capstone Project on a social issue, and an E-Portfolio describing us as individuals. However, throughout my years in high school I realized these requirements were to my benefit. It gave me new experiences, allowed me to find myself, and made me a more competitive applicant. My attitude towards community service changed. Before I would do it to complete it but once I finished I wanted to continue. I continued because I wanted to take action, see a change, and because I enjoyed helping.
My experience at International Studies Learning Center has been very disappointing based on their overreaching intentions and opportunities. They say they are preparing students for college, which they somewhat are, but what about those who choose to not go to college or cannot go to a university after high school. My school should not only inform us about college but also life skills in general for those who choose not to go to college. And aside from the very base of my school, they are removing resources that we as students need to get into college. They are cutting out programs such as the French curriculum, TRIO, and many other fundamental opportunities for students.
