International Studies Learning Center is a very diverse school that focuses on getting every student into college, whether it is: Community, Cal state, UC, or Private. International Studies Learning Center is a great school if you want to learn more about different cultures, languages, and beliefs around the world. I have been attending International Studies Learning Center since the sixth grade and I have been taking the language Japanese for about four years and was lucky enough to visit Japan myself. Learning Japanese for about four years at my high school I was able to communicate to others in Japan. International Studies Learning Center taught me to love college and be excited for my future than I would have ever imagined. International Studies Learning Center is a great school if you care about your future and like to be challenged.

This school is helpful in numerous ways ! I would definitely recommend people to attend this high school. This school offers 3 different languages which are Japanese, Spanish, and Mandarin. Not only that but they offer college classes in each semester and during summer. Counselors are very strict when it comes to education. They help us prepare for college by taking challenging classes like Honors, AVID, and AP classes. They also offer AP Computer Science which many students seem to enjoy. Thus, students are required to accomplish 120 hours of community service and 120 hours of internship by the end of senior year. Yes, it sounds crazy and impossible but it really helps students be more involve with their community. Anyways there’s many clubs that can help you with community service. Hence, we have different sports like tennis, football, basketball, baseball, softball, golf, water polo, soccer etc... Staff members are very respectful. The school is in a safe neighborhood.
International Studies Learning Center is a school made up of the local Hispanic community focused on learning about the world and understanding the various perspectives found within society. Communicating ideas is key to getting to know the various cultures within society and taking action plays a big role within school involvement. The resources are useful and prepare students to venture out into the college world (AVID, USC Trio, etc). The teachers are great educators and aid us in understanding the content being taught. School activities help the school thrive and maintain involvement from the students. The school is a great gateway into the college life and an amazing support system for students.
