    Spanish Immersion in Action!

    Global Studies: Students become global leaders who can change the world! Our learning community learns across all content areas through the lens of cultural awareness and a global perspective.  

    World Languages: All students have the opportunity to study the culture and history of French or Spanish-speaking countries around the world!  Non-immersion students choose to study either French or Spanish on an alternating daily schedule for 90 minutes a week on average.

    Spanish Immersion: Join the journey to become bilingual and biliterate! Our Spanish Immersion program is offered to a cohort of students.  All core instruction in literacy, math, science and social studies is provided in Spanish. Students learn to listen, read, write, and speak fluently in Español.
