International Studies Learning Center (ISLC) is a "span school", meaning a combined junior and senior high school covering grades 6–12, in the Los Angeles Unified School District. It is a small learning community of approximately 700 students, focusing on world cultures and languages. Its vision is to inspire and prepare global citizens. A WASC accredited school,[1] ISLC is part of the Asia Society International Studies Schools Network.[2] It is also partnered with Foundation for California Community Colleges, Los Angeles Southwest College, and Los Angeles Trade-Technical College.[3]

ISLC's middle school community is currently housed in Southeast Middle School in South Gate, California. Its high school community is currently located in the Legacy High School Complex alongside VAPA and STEAM high schools in Legacy High School Complex (Opened in 2014)


ISLC Middle School is currently located in the South East Middle school portion of the South East Complex completed in October 2005 on a 57.45-acre (232,500 m2) plot of land on the site of the old General Motors plant in South Gate, California. The high school has since been relocated to Legacy High School Complex on 2014 and the middle school will be joining the high school in 2018, with the completion of the International Studies Middle School building across the street from the newly built high school complex.
