Our High School consists of students from Grades 9 to 12.  In the first two years of High School, students gain independence and initiative as they become more involved in the leadership of the student body.  They also prepare for the Diploma Program in Grades 11 and 12.  An important part of these final years is our college counseling program, which assists students in finding the right path in their future studies.  Graduates of ISL have been accepted into many prestigious universities.
