    Fuente Nueva is a excellent school I have been there from the beginning and I am now going in to 5th grade and I am going to go to 6th grade. I love my school it is wonderful everyone there is really nice. If you enroll your kid at our school start from the beginning and go to the end. Because spanish is a great second language and our school has a 5 star ratting from the community. Emerald

    The best school we have come across! Spanish is taught through immersion. The arts and science programs are outstanding! Children get to explore various creative outlets in a wholesome environment. Parents and Teachers work together to support each student's best. Children can progress naturally through different subjects and get one on one help in the level they are at. We love Fuente Nueva and wish we could find another school like it where we are now.

    My daughter (Grade 4) has been going to this school since its founding. The partial Spanish immersion curriculum is top notch. The teachers and administrative staff are highly dedicated and creative. The parent community is very involved and close-knit.
