Located in the center of an increasingly diverse metropolis, it is vital that our students increase their ability to speak and read various languages.
Spanish is a component of the daily calendar time for the Pre-K classes. Kindergarten - 5th Grade students receive Spanish instruction twice weekly. Spanish is offered as an elective to Middle School students.
Spanish is taught with an interactive approach inclusive of all learning styles: visual, kinesthetic and auditory. The students see, hear, say the language and apply it using games, songs, and various methods to build the cognitive skills critical to learning a second language. Conversational Spanish instruction is utilized, and students are required to use the language while in Spanish class.
