Welcome to the International High School at Lafayette! I am honored to be the principal of a school that is dedicated to supporting English Language Learners and their families.
We believe that each and every student is a valuable member of the school community, and we celebrate the diversity of our students. We want to support you in staying connected to your language and culture while at the same time developing English language skills, academic habits of mind, and a strong social/emotional foundation.
We want you to look forward to coming to school every day and to engage in learning in a way that is exciting and meaningful by doing fascinating projects in each of your courses. In addition to the projects that you do in your classes, IHSL has a wealth of opportunities that include portfolio assessment, internship for all students, many different sports, college counseling and advising throughout every grade, AP courses, College Now, lots of different clubs and activities, and much, much more.
Just as we wish to support each of our students as comprehensively as possible, we also want to engage and involve families and guardians in our school community. We have a multilingual staff that is always willing to communicate, we partner with numerous organizations to support families, and we strive to work with families as partners in shaping the work that we do.
Again, welcome to the International High School at Lafayette! To the families, please do not hesitate to email, call or stop by the school with any questions that you might have. And for the students we are here for you! If you have any questions or concerns, let us know!
