International School of Los Angeles
The International School of Los Angeles was established in 1978 as a non-profit organization by visionaries of varied cultural backgrounds who felt that the Los Angeles community needed a school which would prepare children for life in an increasingly international environment. The school is now recognized as one of the most academically challenging private high schools in the United States and continues its long commitment to academic excellence.
At the International School of Los Angeles, students adopt ways of thinking and expression that reflect an appreciation for cultural differences and multiple world views. Diverse groups learn more from each other when exchanging different points of view, introducing new pieces of information, and confronting alternative ideas. The school’s small and nurturing classes facilitate the sharing of different viewpoints. Being immersed in a truly multicultural environment helps develop the ability to better understand one’s own culture.
