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 here for seven years Im 12 years old and I garantee u will love this school the teachers are the best u can find they make sure everyone is learning the material properly the school has never has a physical or verbal fight while I went there and I know they wont have one while anyone else is there
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.
Milwaukee Spanish Immersion is a great school! My son is now in first grade, he is doing really good with Spanish and English. I'm grateful for the school staff that are so dedicated and organized. Thank you!
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
I just finished fifth grade there and I had some truly great experiances.I learned so much and it really helped that everyone is very friendly and the teachers are great.I really loved that school! I know it seems kind of dumb to take advice from a 11 year old ,but take it. It`s all true.
