Great school with a great opportunity for students to become fluent in a second language. I have had 2 children go through the program here and will have 2 more going in the next few years. I have recommended this school to everyone who has asked! Excellent teachers with solid backgrounds and all with a desire to connect with the students. Language Ambassadors from other countries really get involved and are great resources.

Great school and opportunity for your children.... The students are completely immersed in the Spanish language and acquire it along with English spoken at home. Students will have great success with parent involvement at school and home because of the inherent challenges of learning two languages fluently.

Teachers and staff have built a wonderful Spanish Immersion school over the last nine years. Together with incredible parent involvement, my three children have thrived and performed very well. Not only are they fluent in Spanish, but they consistently achieve high scores on standardized tests, all of which are given in English. I'm convinced that the language acquisition they have gained at Nuevas Fronteras will serve them well as they progress through their academic and eventually professional careers. What a gem in South Washington County.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Minnesota used the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-II (MCA-II) to test students in math in grade 11. The MCA-II is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Minnesota. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
