A Proven Track Record

ISA students are succeeding!

Latino studentsISA achieves strong results in some of our country’s most challenging public high schools where ¾ of students are eligible for free lunch and nearly two-thirds start ninth grade with significant deficits in mathematics and reading. Only 36% scored proficient in math and 31% scored proficient in reading on 8th grade state tests.

Two independent external studies of ISA schools by the Academy for Educational Development and IMPAQ International found that ISA has a large and positive effect on student achievement, significantly improving high school attendance, credit accumulation, grade promotion, high school graduation rates, and college attendance and persistence rates.
