I'm very happy to have my child attend this school. The program is great and the teachers are all very caring. They have lots of parents involved and helping out in the school in different programs. I love that there are T.A's from mexico, spain and other parts of the world helping the children. Awsome program, Awsome school!

The teachers are fantastic and just in the first year my kindergardener knows a ton of Spanish and loves it. They really make it fun too.

Great school that nutures your child with a global viewpoint. My children will have a viewpoint that we, Americans, are not the only people in the world. Great teaching style that fosters community and linguistic diversity. It is great that a public school system can offer an alternative to traditional learning.

We absolutely love RSI. It has been a great experience for us. My kids are in 3rd and 1st grade. My 3rd grader is basically fluent now and occasionally speaks/thinks in Spanish. We are so pleased! It has helped her English as well ( to learn another language-spelling, word origins etc..).
