ISSA is an international school that offers language immersion programs in French and Mandarin Chinese for children 2-12 years old.
FULL-DAY, HALF-DAY AND 3-DAY SCHEDULES
Our preschool program serves children between the ages of 2-5 years in a French or Mandarin Chinese immersion environment. Your child will learn math, literacy, science, arts, and music while absorbing French or Mandarin Chinese. English and a third language are added later in the program. As a result, your child will not only become elementary and middle school-ready, but will also develop bi-literacy, and begin communicating in a third language.
BEFORE & AFTER-SCHOOL CARE
Busy parents can feel confident that their children are receiving quality care at all times while attending ISSA. Our language immersion school is a licensed child care center, where care is regulated on an ongoing basis by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. We partner with our parents to create a schedule that meets their needs for drop-off and pick-up.
GROUP LANGUAGE CLASSES
Language immersion classes meet once a week on Saturdays. These are available to children 3-12 years old. For maximum interaction, our class sizes are limited to 6 students. To make sure that our students understand what they are hearing in the classroom, our teachers use visuals: gestures, modeling, real-life objects and lots of pictures to illustrate a theme or situation.
LANGUAGE IMMERSION CAMPS
Parents can introduce their children to a new language and culture by participating in themed enrichment activities. ISSA's focus is to introduce vocabulary in a hands-on approach through cooking, games, arts & crafts, and other activities that take learning beyond the classroom and into daily life.
