I have two children that attend ISA, and I have loved this school. I am very picky, and have researched schools extensively. You just can't beat learning a second language. This school is rare in that language immersion is COMPLETE; this is really the only way to be truly fluent. They get English instruction, and score high in English tests, and state tests that are in English--no worries there. I feel like any concern I have will be addressed. The parents are very involved, and it is a true community feel to the school! There truly is no other school like it in AZ. Both directors are great, and are SO involved with the school.

We also send our children there and love the education they receive and the dedication of the teachers and staff. You will be amazed how quickly they learn a second language.

Our children have been going to the school for years and it is the best gift we could have ever given them. They have a great understanding of the world and are fluent in a second language. Very challenging curriculum.
