Something that I really love about International Studies Learning Center or "ISLC" is that it is a span school. ISLC starts students off from the sixth grade and takes them up until their senior year. The reason why I love it so much is because everyone knows everyone which makes me feel like we are all one big happy family. Something else that I really love about ISLC is the strong college culture that they have for their students. Starting in the sixth grade, teachers begin to teach students about college and highly encourage students that college is the path to take right after high school. And the strong college culture only grows when students get to high school and I feel that I am extremely lucky to be at this school because with the encouragement and environment that has surrounded me for almost 6 years, I am happy to say that I feel ready for what's to come my senior year and for college.
Although there are a few negatives to this school such as the safety and grading system, this school is pretty decent with some interactive and fun teachers.
What I loved about International was the ability to have support throughout my years. I made great connections with teachers and peers.
What I liked about ISLC is the diversity of cultures and the focus on international aspects of education. Along with the different languages offered such as Japanese, Spanish, and Chinese.
It was a great school. Small, I graduated with 93 other classmates. They pay more attention to students this way since there is a small group and you connect with each of your peers. Great learning environment but social activities were hard to make happen. I was a part of senior cabinet and ASB but the staff were making it hard to have an amazing high school experience. We did our best to have fun though, which is why I give it 4:5
Something i like about international is the teachers that offer full support to each student. It feels like family with some of my teachers. Some things I would like to see different is more lunch and break time, in my personal opinion, we have little time, by the time we go leave the line for lunch we only have about 18 minutes to eat and get back to class. Keep in mine that our break is 10 mun
Through my past 6 years at the International Studies Learning Center middle school and high school, I have had a pretty good experience at the school. Recently there has been a significant improvement in the quality of the free food given at the school, and the promotion of higher education opportunities is great. It is a nice school which does it's best to provide students with the best learning environment it can provide.
My was a good one, got to learn a lot of things and met a lot of people life has never been the same since there. I greatly recommend to everyone, it’s definitely a place to be, it has a lot of great resources to help students be successful
I like that there are teachers that give information that will help us in the future like for college applications and what to expect in college as a freshmen. Something I would change is the types of electives offered so that there is different ones besides just language and computer classes.
ISLC is a school unlike any other: They have a small campus, decent class sizes, and student learner outomes which help in allowing students become global citizens.
I love this school!! They have it really organized and I learn so much. The teachers are nice and encourage you to do excellent.
I am currently a senior at ISLC. I have been attending International since sixth grade. This school is very strict, but worth it. All the teachers will make sure your on track to graduating. I like how ISLC offers dual enrollment for their students, so they'll be able to earn college credit. They also offer different foreign classes such as Japanese, Mandarin, and Spanish. This school is great for college bound students. Hence, they also offer different clubs and sports.
It is such a good experience, very nice teachers that help you out. The school helps a lot with college readiness and help make you do college application.
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.
ISLC is the perfect high school for me. With a low amount of students, there are more chances to foster meaningful connections with classmates and teachers!
Students are well educated. Have teachers and staff members that engage with them daily. Safe campus.
This school is making. It has helped me in many ways by opening me to many opportunities such as clubs, internships, AP classes, and sports. They have a lot to offer!
