Principal's Message

Alina Lopez


Dear Parents and Guardians,


It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of International Studies Charter School. It is a true honor to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education and culture. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty-two years and have had the privilege of working with a variety of students’ ranging in grades Kindergarten through college. My most recent administrative experience was at Somerset Academy South Homestead and Somerset Preparatory Academy where I served as the Principal of two campuses. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to International Studies Charter and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

We will focus on preparing our students to think and behave as thoughtful citizens of the world…

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by our Chief Academic Officer, Mr. Victor Rodriguez by building strong relationships with parents, students, community and international partners. We will focus on preparing our students to think and behave as thoughtful citizens of the world and to make decisions with integrity by offering a multi-lingual, multi-literate, and multi-cultural curriculum while providing consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous and innovative manner.


All of us at International Studies Charter School are excited to begin what promises to be a wonderful year. We know we will continue to provide academic experiences for our students while building relationships and making real-world connections. As your Principal, I want to ensure that everyone who steps through our doors shares our passion for education knows and understands what it is to be part of the ISCHS Family!


I look forward to working with all of you and look forward to a successful school year!
