I love the school... My daughter has been attending since K4 and she will in 4th grade this year!!! All the teachers are nice and they want the best for the students. My daughter learned how to read in Spanish before she read in English. We speak Spanish at home, but having her also do it at school is great. I wish they would go until 12th grade!

My kids use to go here my daughter was in 4th grade when I had to pull her out due to them refusing my sons IEP. Yes I was told they don't have the staff to help my son out if he has a learning problem. Which he has ADD and he needed more one on one help. I've loved the teachers but being denied help for my son was very frustrating.

I graduated from this school in 1995 and it was the best decision that my parents could have made for me. Being bilingual has helped me tremendously throughout my adulthood. Jerrica Roberson

Hello! I have been to Milwaukee Spanish Immersion school for 7 years, my name is Kiah Lang and I am currently in 5th grade as of October, 2013. I love my school because the kids are so fun and nice and the teachers are so good! It's just a happy place to be! It is a great choice and it will help your child get a good education and an amazing job in their future. This is because they will know Spanish, and knowing Spanish will really help you out when you are looking for a job. As you can see, I am very good at writing and grammar and spelling, and this is because of Milwaukee Spanish Immersion, and of course my parents! -Kiah Lang, Milwaukee Spanish Immersion School, 10

My kids have gone here for 5 years, and it has gone from good to so so to great! They have learned a lot, and have made great friends. They have grown intellectually, socially, and emotionally. The teachers are caring, and I trust that they have their best interests at heart. It is a gem within MPS.

I honestly love this school! The staff is so caring and helpful. My daughter is in K5 only her second year there and she is pretty fluent in Spanish! We are not a Spanish speaking family but I do have friends that can speak the language and she can hold her own weight in conversations with them. She went from behavior problems in preschool to perfect behavior and I was recently told she is a role model for her Spanish ability and her perfect behavior! Principal needs a little nudging when there was a problem but once you cc her boss on an email she was right on top of everything The support staff and office staff are excellent as well as the camp staff. I wish I would have found this school when my son was young enough to get in!

Many of the teachers have had or have their children attending MSIS. Very dedicated, experienced teachers. Principal gets right in and is hands-on in her leadership.

I went to MSIS for the full 7 years and it was great. The teachers are nice and helpful and you get to stay with the same group of kids from years to year.

This Is a great school. It offers diversity, athletics, organized recess, tutoring, violin, piano, etc.... Administration is strong, and works well together, and the teaching staff is fantastic. I can't imagine many other schools matching it. I didn't get Spanish till 8th grade when I was growing up. What a great opportunity for my kids.

My son spent his first three years of school at Spanish Immersion. When he started having problems with Spanish, there was no help for him. We are not a Spanish speaking family. They have no tutoring programs. No remedial classes. The only special program they have to help students with Spanish is only for those who have a severe mental disability. I found it very disheartening when I asked for help and I was told to get a Spanish/English dictionary.

My oldest son completed K4 last year and is about to enter K5, and I am completely impressed with this school. The staff is excellent, caring, and nurturing, everything that my wife and I were looking for in an elementary school for our kids.

I am a parent at the Milwaukee Spanish Immersion school and also one of the teachers. What always impressed me about the school was the level of parent involvement and staff dedication. Parents choose to send their child to Milwaukee Spanish Immersion School knowing that it will be dificult--especially for those who have no experience with the Spanish language at all (about 70% of families). Their dedication makes a huge difference in the attitude of the students and in their success. My son is in second grade now and I appreciate the education he is getting. His Spanish is excellent and he is on level in English too. We are fortunate to have this resource in our city, along with the German, French Immersion prgrams and now a new Italian Immersion program. This is one of the oldest immersion programs in the country and still one of the best.

My daughter has been a student k-4,k5 & now 1st grade. I have never seen a school so organized, diverse & fun. This will surely have a positive impact on my daughter's education for the rest of her life. She is fluent in english & spanish. Everyone at MSIS works hard as a team to ensure that the children. They provide music, art, sports & other total school involvement, which allows the students 'entire' family to become involved with the school. I think if a family is considering sending their child to a language immersion school, this would have to be at the top of the list. Great School, awesome teachers, Caring staff all make this a great place for any child. Mr & Mrs Cartagena
