ISLA Los Sábados is a weekly heritage language immersion program for children ages 4 to 16 that aims to close the achievement gap and open doors for Hispanic youth. 


Backed by research demonstrating significant cognitive and educational benefits of bilingual education, ISLA’s inquiry-led instruction offers preschool through middle school students literacy skills in Spanish that transfer to learning in English, empowering them to become global citizens with valuable fluency and cultural understanding that will serve them in the US and abroad.


ISLA's team of educators use Mexican, Ecuadorean, Peruvian, Colombian, and international baccalaureate models to develop culturally relevant curriculum in Spanish-language literacy, science, art and outdoor education.
