- Spanish is taught naturally, through daily classroom activities that meet the educational standards set-forth by the school.
- Bilingual educations improves key elements of brain performance, particularly in the areas of right-brain/left-brain integration and executive function, which includes working memory, mental flexibility and self-control.
- Students in language immersion programs demonstrate higher levels of resilience, perseverance, greater creativity in problem solving, and are more flexible and culturally sensitive.
- Classes begin in early elementary, with an additional grade level added each year.
- Students selected for the program must meet the school's admission standards.
