Eagle Heights Spanish Immersion 5

Posted April 13, 2016

Eagle Heights has an incredible sense of community amongst the teachers, staff, students, parents and our Interns. Our amazingly strong parent community knows that the best practice Immersion for students is an Immersion environment with NATIVE Spanish speakers. As such, we raise funds and administer a very in depth and intensive program that brings in 16-18 Native Spanish speaking interns from various countries across the globe!!! These interns assist the teachers in the classroom; they provide extensive cultural learnings for the students; they assist in nuances in the spanish language that exists across countries so that our students are prepared for whatever they face. Ultimately these students return home as amazing ambassadors of our community and the United States in general. Our school changes lives!!!

Thank you to Sra T. Siguenza for taking a leadership role; for looking at where we were succeeding and strengthening the program; for seeing where we could do better and fighting for support; for giving the teachers freedom and tools to improve what they offer the students; for listening to parent concerns with patience and kindness; for caring about our students!

Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

Some of the best and most committed we have worked with. They do everything a regular teacher does AND has to adjust and translate into Spanish without the assistance of parents in the classroom unless the parent is fluent in spanish.

It depends on the grade, the subject and the student. It seems about right for us!

Yes, grade level teachers work together to develop curriculum (as the state does not provide this in spanish) that challenges the students. They re-evaluate and adjust and spend much of their own time off the clock ensure the students are ready to move to middle school and high school.

Our school support many volunteer oppportunities for the students. Such as the Polar Plunge and special olympics which inspired students to do more and create a kindness movement that has spread across the city. Kindergarten students spend the year with a grade 6 buddy that helps them get to class, get on the bus and provides a friendly face amongst all the new!

As a family we were dedicated to Spanish immersion in selecting a school for our children. The 2011-12 school year is the first year both the lower and upper campus are in the same building. This building is an old middle school building. It now houses both Eagle Heights Spanish k-6 as well as Oak Point Elem. k-6. It is my feeling this was a great mistake. I believe there is a lack of connection due to the vast number of students. It lacks the intimacy an elementary school should have. The parent community is great, teachers are good but the overall feeling can leave kids feeling quite anonymous during these early nuturing years.

I taught at EHSI as a teacher and changed districts because of my commute. The school has a strong sense of community and impressive academic outcomes in the target language. It is amazing to have 6 year olds speaking to you exclusively in Spanish! The talented teachers and staff work are really dedicated to the immersion model which results in high student achievement. The principal is a dynamic leader and really cares about each child, as do all the staff.
