International Studies Program
Students pursuing English/Spanish proficiency will have the opportunity to enter the Spanish Section of the International Studies Program (ISP). This dual recognition program is a collaborative effort of M-DCPS and the Ministry of Education and Science of Spain. The ISP offers students the opportunity to explore social science and science objectives which are part of Spain's educational curriculum and not covered by Florida standards. This highly demanding academic program will enable students to receive a "bachiller" degree from Spain as well as a High School Diploma upon successful 12th grade graduation from the program and fulfillment of the educational requirements set up by each country. The ISP functions as a component of Ada Merritt's English/Spanish two way bilingual program with an additional hour of daily instruction in Spanish.
