IHS offers a rigorous college preparatory program for limited English proficient students in a multicultural educational environment.
IHS gives priority to students of limited English proficiency who have been in the United States fewer than four years at
the time of application. Once admitted, the students remain with the school for their entire high school career. They receive a substantive high school/college curriculum taught with a content-based English-as-a-second-language approach. At the same time, students maintain and further develop their native language skills by engaging in peer-mediated instructional activities using materials and textbooks in English as well as their native languages.
