Our goal is to prepare all students to become Spanish speakers.
Spanish is included in the curriculum from the first year. Students in Kindergarten through 4th grade have at least two Spanish classes each week with Senora Galan. Students learn Spanish through songs, play, technology, recitation, and interactive games.
In 5th grade, the Spanish program intensifies. Students in grade 5 have three Spanish classes each week with Senora Chapa. Students in grades 6-8 have three weekly Spanish classes, including a one-hour class. Our aim is to make Spanish the primary language spoken in the 7th and 8th grade classes -- and to give our students the opportunity to begin high school in Spanish II.
