International School of Louisiana (ISL) to Hold Fabulous Fortnight Showcase 

Two-week event engages students in activities which promote learning in a more project-based, hands-on kind of way

WHAT:    The International School of Louisiana (ISL), a renowned, tuition-free language immersion program, is excited to announce its annual “Fabulous Fortnight Showcase.” The Fabulous Fortnight  Showcase is the culminating event after the May 8-17th program, tailored specifically for middle school students. This engaging two-week period follows state testing and offers a break from traditional learning routines, encouraging students to dive into project-based, hands-on activities. Classes follow curriculum-based units, but learning happens outside of a regular class setting. At the Showcase, students will display their learning outcomes.

  • Gallery Walk/Art Market: 12:30pm to 1:45pm

WHERE:    International School of Louisiana – Uptown Campus

Cheer Camp,” “Healthy Living,” and “K-Pop and C-Pop Entertainment Co,” among others. For more information on the courses, click here.

Melanie Tennyson, Head of School at ISL, explains, “Fabulous Fortnight is a unique opportunity for our Middle School students to step outside the usual classroom environment and engage in diverse and dynamic learning experiences. These are not your typical school days; instead, they are designed to incorporate core academic standards into creative and explorative settings. Our ISL Uptown Campus teachers do a tremendous job of providing these opportunities to students.”

As the only multi-language immersion school chartered by the State of Louisiana, ISL prides itself on being a high-performing institution accessible to all Louisiana residents, with no prior language experience necessary.
