The International Studies Schools Network currently consists of twelve schools located in New York, Charlotte, Los Angeles, Houston, Mathis, San Antonio, Denver, and Bloomfield (CT), with plans to open two schools in Austin and New York in the next two years as well as 25 to 30 additional schools by 2013.  These schools are all dedicated to providing a rigorous, engaging internationally-focused education for primarily urban, low-income, and minority students to prepare them for college, the changing workforce, and a lifetime of learning as 21st century global citizens.
