As you may know, The International School was awarded 4th place in the  International Spanish Academies' (ISAS) 2016 Academic Excellence in Spanish Competition! International Spanish Academies are part of an international cooperation educational project between public schools in US and Canada and the Spanish Ministry of Education, Social Policy and Sport (MEPSYD)

The contest, overseen by the Government of Spain's Ministry of Education, recognizes North American K-12 schools for excellence in the implementation of an integrated learning methodology of content and language in Spanish. The International School was the only private school recognized out of the seven elementary, middle, and high schools on the list. 

Maria Abad, Head of Early Childhood, traveled to the Spanish Ambassador's residence in Washington, DC to accept our award. Our two 4th grade Spanish-track teachers, Paola and Gilberto, will also be spending two-weeks in Spain this summer on professional development scholarships!

Congratulations again, Spanish Track teachers!!
