    My daughter is in kindergarten at this school. They offer a Spanish Immersion program that compares to the International school. She get 50% of her instruction in English and 50% of her instruction in Spanish. All of the Spanish teachers are from Spain and offer a unique authentic experience. My daughter like most students at this school did not know any Spanish before entering this school. She is able to speak and understand a lot of Spanish and she is just half way through the year. The teachers are amazing and it clearly shows when you walk into the building. If you feel a bilingual experience is important this school is a perfect fit.
