WE STAND WITH BLACK LIVES MATTER.

We prepare future leaders.

WE SUPPORT & CONNECT EDUCATORS.

WE improve education for immigrant youth.

WE SUPPORT MULTILINGUAL LEARNERS.

Our network is a unique community of schools and academies located across the US. We support each other and collaborate to provide quality public education for immigrant and refugee youth.  

We are a learning community of practitioners. We offer opportunities to connect, share, and improve practice for educators and school leaders so they can provide meaningful education for our multilingual learner students.

 We work with partner organizations to build broader public and policymaker support for equity and education for Multilingual Learners in all schools across the US. 

schools + academies

We have 28 schools and academies located across the US serving over 9,500 students. Our schools are based on the Internationals Approach, a set of 5 Core Principles that we developed and proved successful through over 35 years of practitioner implementation. Our approach to education addresses the areas of a school’s structure, pedagogy, culture, and governance to effectively serve immigrant and refugee Multilingual Learner (MLL) youth.

our students

Over 9,500 students attending Internationals Network’s schools and academies are newcomers who have been in the country for four years or less at their time of admission. Our students are diverse, coming from over 130 countries, and represent a multitude of racial and ethnic groups, with over 100 native languages spoken in our schools. Although many of our multilingual learners speak two, three, four or more languages, all are new to learning English when they enter Internationals Network schools.
