ILA will be hosting an day-long Open House on Thursday, March 23rd, from 8 am to 6 pm. 14788 Boones Ferry Rd. Lake Oswego, OR.
Did you know that ILA has, by far, more field trips than any other local public and private school? That we have the most culturallly and ethnically diverse staff? And student body? That we now offer classes in four languages (French, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and English) to children at all grade levels? That our Head of School is a PhD candidate in Education? That we are the only school in the area, public or private, that follows the scientifically recommended 7 weeks on curriculum, and 2 weeks off (ITC weeks). And that our ITC weeks do not cost parents extra?
And there is so much more to know! That’s why we are hosting next Thursday’s Open House. Come learn more about the unique learning environment we offer your child, and how our curriculum develops over a child’s school career.
All classrooms will be open to visiting parents throughout the school day. Come observe and ask all your questions: all staff is expected to be there, and there will be informational packets in each class.
If you can’t come earlier, be sure to come at 3:30 p.m. for the informational meeting and power-point presentation. There will be free child care while you learn all about ILA, about our unique curriculum, and about the many ways in which second-language learning benefits your child’s brain (greater connectivity, better performance in almost all areas including math, science, and music… and more).
A strong bi-lingual, international education such as ILA’s opens up students’ minds and hearts to the larger world, and opens up the world’s horizons to them. And remember, most children with a quality bi-lingual pre-college education receive scholarships for their university studies. Thus, an education at ILA is truly an muti-faceted investment that can begin paying financial returns as early as college!
