What is ISANA?

ISANA is a non-profit charter management organization that runs 6 high quality public charter schools in Los Angeles. We serve approximately 3100 students from transitional kindergarten through 8th grade.

The word “isana” means “sun” in 3 districts in Eastern Uganda (the Budaka, Kibuku, and Pallisa districts). There are approximately 410,000 people who are mother-tongue speakers of this language. This name was chosen through collaborative input from our students, families, and staff. A sun to us represents the promise of a new day and a new hope for each of us.

We have turned ISANA into an acronym that represents who we are
Innovative, Socially-Aware, Network of Achievers.

ISANA MISSION

The mission of ISANA is to provide schools where all students will thrive in an atmosphere of high expectations and engaging curriculum with challenging learning activities.  To do this, ISANA  creates and operates high-quality charter schools that serve communities in Los Angeles, and offers programs for children and their families, including after-school, evening, and summer programs.
