El Paso, Texas (KTSM) — Ysleta Independent School District (YISD) is hosting the “International Schools Showcase” at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 9.
The showcase gives students the opportunity to explore the benefits of the dual-language programs offered at the district’s five international schools, according to the release sent by YISD.
YISD says at the showcase there will be representatives from each Ysleta ISD international school to answer questions and talk to parents and students.
