My child began Kindergarten at Turnagain Elementary's Russian Immersion program this year (Fall 2010). I am very happy with his progress. He has no prior knowledge of Russian language yet after only three days of school was able to have a short conversation with me. I was amazed! I am further impressed by the MIR Inc. Parent's Program at Turnagain- it's pretty much the PTA for the Russian Immersion program. The parents are very involved & have great ideas & strong motivation to share how wonderful the program is. My child loves school and can't wait to go in the morning. I highly recommend Turnagain Elementary especially their Russian Immersion Program.
