My daughter is in kindergarten and loves her teacher. Since her mom is from Mexico it is very important for our daughter to be able to speak Spanish. We are extremely happy with the language options the school offers. In addition, the ENCORE programs are GREAT!
-An Extremely HAPPY Parent! :-)
The teachers are involved and supportive. There are a ton of after school activities to participate in and it's a great location. My son has thrived at this school and had benefited from learning a second language.
This is a champagne education with a beer price. My oldest started as a 1st grader in Mandarin the first year this school was opened. The staff and teachers are everything you could hope for. Now he is in high school and has to have 2 years of language to prepare for graduation. He is grateful that he had so many years of Mandarin as learning Spanish has been easy for him. I cannot say enough good things about this school.
The school can only do so much. They try and it only sticks if we reinforce at home. If we display these values, our children then display them in school. Unfortunately there are some aggressive parents, but I think that shows up in every environment.
I am so happy that I enrolled our children here. We were hesitant at first because of what people say about standardized test scores of children in immersion schools, but are now so happy we did it anyways! Our kids are now bilingual and functioning above their grade level. Fluent adults complement their Spanish. Also, I love the community of families that we have bonded with. I commend the staff for what they do for our kiddos! Teaching is hard enough as it is so I can imagine how much harder it is to communicate when you are speaking in a foreign language. But it works. Thank you!
