I love this school!! The teachers are very dedicated and committed to helping the student succeed. I feel my daughter is safe and respected by her teachers and peers. I have another child who starts school next year and I hoping to get her in here also. I am not a fan of the Columbus Public school district but I am a fan of this school and would highly recommend it to anyone. If I had to name one improvement it would for school to find a better way to integrate English. My daughter speaks Spanish excellently but English is a challenege for her.

As a bilingual parent, I'm so happy to have both of my children attend CSIA (grades 1 and 3). My 3rd-grader was reading in English at a 5th-grade level at the end of grade 2! The teachers and other students provide a very supportive and welcoming atmosphere, and challenge them to grow. The principal is wonderful and pushes hard to get the school all that it needs. As to the older comment about overcrowding and food, this year we have a new, much-improved food program, and smaller class sizes. We will have a new building fall of 2012!

I am very pleased with my sons school. Only one issue I have...there isn't other location to give parents options to purchase home outside of franklin county, such as Dublin or Gahanna. However, it speaks a lot about the school program because I stayed in Columbus school district to allow my son the opportunity to learn another high demand lanaguage. Hopefully the program will be offered all over or allowed to those who move out of are to continue without any issues. Thank you.

My son is in kindergarten here and he loves it! And so do I. He is learning so much here. We thought it would be a little of a set back since they teach in Spanish but he is actually doing better than some kindergartners at other schools. The teachers are really friendly and keep you informed. You can go and visit the school and be a class helper if you wish. And another thing that I love is that they keep the school doors locked from the outside so any visitors have to be buzzed in by stating their name and what they are there for. They are always working on projects that are fun but educational at the same time and my son is always excited to go to school. I don't think I could have found a better school!!!

CSIA is an alternative school so it is much better than your typical public school. The principal and teachers are committed to providing a good education to the children. The Spanish immersion is a real plus. By 3rd grade the children can understand Spanish and are able to use it somewhat, although not fluently. The staff goes out of it's way to keep parents involved and informed. The music program is excellent. There is much emphasis put on writing skills. The school is very over crowded, and like all other city schools the quality of lunch is poor. The school needs to improve it's math and reading programs. It is adequate now, but can't compete with private or suburban schools. My child has enjoyed her years at this school, as well as her relationships with teachers and friends.

This is the best school in Columbus! My daughter was so prepared there, that she was admited into one of the most prestigious schools in the world in the fiftth grade. The teachers are terrific, and the school environment is very welcoming. Because of the limited amount of students, the culture of the school is like an extended family. The only reason we left CSIA is due to relocating, and I wish we could move back so my daughter could finish school there! I would also like to note that after about the fourth grade, the children can already carry on a conversation if not be fluent in spanish.

This is a wonderful school and learning experience for my child. I would highly reccomend this school to any one looking for a great public school. The teachers are great and the experience my child has had so far has left me speechless, thank you CSI for the experience, for my daughter.

I love the spanish immersion program. My kids have all flourished under the love and personal attention they have recieved. I believe my kids are experiencing a fully developed education, including language, culture, music, science, and math. They have chess club, scrabble club, choir, bell choir, etc.
