Over the last few weeks, hundreds of English language learner students (ELLs) in our expanding national network of International High Schools have graduated from high school and are heading to college or starting a career. We are all very proud of their accomplishments and extend our congratulations to the first graduating class of San Francisco International High School as well as the incoming freshman class of the International High School for Health Sciences – our newest high school opening this fall. We thank you for your interest and support as we continue to successfully educate a growing number of recently arrived immigrant youth for success in college and career for many years to come.

We hope you enjoy reading our newsletter and wish you all a wonderful summer break.
