Our Mission 
We inspire our students to be courageous citizens who are change-makers through communication, exploration, and the arts in a collaborative, multicultural community.

Our Vision 
The Interdistrict School for Arts and Communication (ISAAC) is a remarkable middle school where our students excel in three dimensions:

  • All ISAAC students create high quality work that is celebrated in the community for making a difference and is acclaimed for its craftsmanship, authenticity and complexity.
  • All ISAAC students articulate how their habits and their CREW values help them to be successful scholars. 
  • All ISAAC students possess the knowledge and skills when they graduate from eighth grade to perform at a high school level.

Our Core Values
We believe in individual creative development within a multicultural community. Our academic program is built on the framework of EL Education’s Core Practices where joy and rigor are equally balanced within student learning experiences. Our curriculum is designed around project-based learning that is complex, connected to the real world and demands craftsmanship. Structures such as Student-Led Conferences, Celebrations of Learning and Eighth Grade Portfolio Passages empower our students to take ownership and pride in their learning.
