I'm thankful for all the people that work at voices, they not only do their best to make the students succeed academically, but they also teach them how to be good citizens, and care for others, thank you voices for the hard work.

By using in lak'ech as a value, students learn that empathy is very important. "you are my other me, if i do harm to you, i do harm to myself. If i love and respect you, i love and respect myself. "

I am not completely fluent in Spanish so when we had our daughters I thought it was important to share the language with them. By the time my daughter finished Kinder she was able to have simple conversations in Spanish. The amount she learned in one school year was amazing! Since then she continues to learn with reading, writing & speaking in Spanish. Voices is a dual immersion school and we are very happy here. I love how each classroom learns about their teachers colleges and their experiences. My daughter knows she has choices. There is a huge family presence at Voices and lots of parents are involved and volunteer. My daughter is now in 3rd grade and she loves every teacher she has had so far. We look forward to the coming years as she continues to learn and grow.

I think school is great, my son has been learning a lot in English and Spanish. Also they teach them since they begin Kinder that the goal is always be the best student and reach goals at the University. I think all the personnel is great and the programs, but the only think that I would like to mention is that it will perfect if they have like PE class, or let the students to do sports.

I love this school! The office is always open for suggestions to make the school better and they care so much about their students. When I first started looking for a school Voices was my first choice. I knew that I wanted my children to be fluent at both Spanish and English. The students are also very well mannered and I believe that is due to the extended grades. Since Voices goes from K-8th the students appreciate their school more and are more united. I definitely recommend this school.

Voices College-Bound Language Academy is the best school for my child. I've sent 3 older children to another bi-lingual school, but Voices is better in so many ways. 1st. The children learn to read in both languages right from kindergarten. 2nd The percentage of Spanish/English instruction which starts at 80/20, increases the amount of English each year so that by 3rd grade, the students are taught equally in both languages. 3rd. The curriculum is challenging and proves that our children are capable of much more that we ever thought. My daughter is so happy at this school and is learning every day.

This school has done a GREAT job with my kid that's in 2nd grade. Love the fact that he's learning a lot in both languages and really having confidence in himself. Teachers & staff have been great so far with my son, me and my wife.

I unfortunately agree with the posts below. I used to be so happy of the fact that my child attended Voices because I felt like I was part of a community that cared about helping him. Definitely not what it used to be. My son had three great teachers there and they are gone. Some people are nice but do not know what they are doing.

Simply Amazing! here's the good stuff..My child in nearing the end of her kindergarten year at Voices. She has excelled in so many ways. She knew how to read a only a handful of words at the beginning of the school year, now she reads absolutely everything..she even attempts hard words. Beyond that, she is more intellectual and asks thousands(literally) of questions. Her spanish speaking skills are amazing. We speak only english at home, yet she has become conversational in spanish with her friends at school. She has learned to read/write at least 200 words in both languages combined. The teachers and leadership at this school are something I have never seen before. It's truly a family atmosphere. All issues are addressed immediately, and there are countless opportunities for parent involvement. here's the not so good stuff...Voices is relatively new. The amenities at this school aren't that great. The classrooms are ancient and many of the restrooms are outside. I wish they had more enrichment opportunities for the kids such as field trips. Also, now that I see how much my child can accomplish, I wish they would spend more time pushing children like her beyond their grade level.

I am very pleased with the education my son is recieving at Voices. This is his 2nd year at Voices and he is in the 1st grade. I am very proud as to how much my son has learned in the year and a half he has been there. Voices will be the only school for him until he reaches High School. I am proud to share my son's experience to all I come in contact with expecially those parents who are looking for a better education for their kids. Ms. Teso and staff are committed to higher learning.

My son is attending his second year at Voices and loves it. I have nothing but positive things to say about the school and staff. Principal Teso is an amazing leader and fierce advocate for education. Her passion is shared by the staff at the school. I am proud that my son and eventually daughter will complete their K-8 education at Voices.
