International High School at Langley Park
Dr. Carlos Beato is currently the founding principal of International High School at Langley Park (IHSLP), a school that serves 100% ELL students who are newcomers to the U.S. In designing and implementing an innovative student-centered school intentionally designed to serve his diverse student body, Carlos and his team created a strong personalized, mastery-based model that leverages a strong advisory program and community partners who provide significant enrichment opportunities for students. At IHSLP, students receive support to hone their language skills and acquire competencies no matter where they come in. The school was named one of the top schools in the country by the U.S. News and World Report in 2021.

He has presented for the following organizations: Johns Hopkins Institute for Education Policy, “Preparing Teachers for Diverse America”; Mid-Atlantic Conference on Personalized Learning, “Competency-Based Schooling for ELLs”; INACOL Blended and Online Learning Symposium, “Lessons from New Competency-Based High Schools: Leaders Reflect on Design and Launch.”
