About the International Studies Program

Entering its 26th year, the International Studies Program was created in 1989 by a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the Ministry of Education and Sciences of Spain and the Public School System of Miami-Dade County in Florida. The IS Program is a highly demanding curriculum that allows the IS Students who complete the program through the 12th grade to receive a “Bachiller” degree from the Ministry of Education and Sciences of Spain and a High school diploma from the State of Florida.

About SIPA

The Spanish International Parents Association (SIPA) was established in April 1990 at Sunset Elementary School. SIPA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of parents. It serves as a support group for the Spanish section of the International Studies Program of Miami-Dade County Public Schools.

Our Mission

To support and enhance the International Studies program by providing opportunities to enrich the Spanish cultural education of the IS Spanish students, our teachers, and the SIPA membership community.

We accomplish our purpose by providing funding for programs and events that encourage the study and use of the Spanish language and develop awareness and appreciation for the Spanish culture, history and customs and by collaborating and advising the administration and leadership of the International Studies Spanish program in the participating schools.

We serve the Miami-Dade Public School and Spanish Ministry of Education’s International Studies Spanish programs at;

  • International Studies Charter High School
