About Us


The mission of the DeKalb International Student Center is to teach our students English.

The vision of the DeKalb International Student Center is to inspire our community of learners to achieve educational excellence.

We serve students in 7th and 8th grades who spend up to two years learning to speak, read, and write in English, across all content areas to support their future success in their neighborhood high schools.

The DeKalb International Student Center:

* Provides quality English Language instruction that yields effective school behavior for academic and social skills.

* Assesses students at their functional level.

* Respects, recognizes, and accepts cultural diversity and universal human rights.
