Our kids are both in dual immersion Spanish programs here in CA, we're moving back to SLC but can't find anything comparable with favorable ratings. There are a couple dual immersion programs there but I'm not confident that they are great schools. too little data out there. 73251
You've probably already found something but in the Salt Lake City School district there are 3 schools that have a Spanish Immersion option. First is a school in Rose Park that I would not recommend due to the area, second is Emerson Elementary. The program is one that your child must be tested into. It is a gifted program and the district does testing from January to Mid-march. It is not too late to sign up for the test. The 3rd option is the Dual Immersion Academy in Salt Lake. They teach on a 90/10 which means 90% in Spanish and 10% in English. Test scores are low but that is because the test is given in English while the students are learning Spanish. 76436
By now, you've probably learned that most Utah schools are mediocre at best. You may need to re-evaluate priorities. If you want your children to receive an excellent education, you should consider some private and public charter schools. Both Rowland-Hall and Waterford are terrific. Rowland-Hall will be closer to downtown. If you're willing to drive or re-locate, the public charter schools Summit Academy and American Preparatory Academy-Draper Campus #1 are superb. Channing Hall is also a good choice. American Prep is building a second Draper campus, so you have a darn good chance of being selected if you enter the lottery. One way to move up on a wait list is to go to work for the school in some capacity. Good luck! Our family has been here for 11 years, and our kids have excelled at public charter and private schools. Until you get into a decent school, supplement on a daily basis with online learning games, good literature, etc. There should always be hw/study time during the school week!81982
