Q: How does this Spanish immersion program work?
A: A Spanish immersion program is a unique educational
option that teaches native English-speaking children all their academic
subjects in Spanish starting in preschool all the way through the fifth
Q: What are the results?
A: Students who are well educated in both their native
English and a second language not only experience educational benefits
such as higher scores on standardized tests in reading, math, and
science, but also experience social benefits.
Q: Most language learning doesn't start until junior high, why are you starting so early?
A: By teaching all their curriculum in the second language, and starting when children are best able to acquire another language, these children are able to attain true bilingual proficiency in both languages. They are even able to learn third and fourth languages with an ease that can't be attained if they begin language learning later.
Q: If I were to have a child in this program, what other kinds of things would I need to know?
A: We are happy to include this Adobe pdf document of our Parent Handbook. Hopefully this will help you put yourself and your child in an immersion classroom!
