Our immersion environments engage students in multi-sensory and inquiry-based activities that foster strong critical-thinking and creative problem solving skills. Our accelerated curriculum provides academic challenge in two languages, while our individualized attention allows students the freedom to ask, to explore, and to enjoy learning.
As bilingual research supports, skills acquired in one language transfer to another, allowing our students to learn efficiently, make connections, and approach concepts from multiple angles. Our own assessment results in English and the target language support these findings.
