    I love this school teachers are great. The dual program is strong. The CAPS program is great my son enjoys it.

    The Dual Immersion program is a great idea for all children to be able to learn 2 languages at the same time. Thanks M. Munoz

    I am very happy to have my most valuable treasure who is my son in the greatest school Urbita Elementary. I have great communication with Urbita's staff which includes my son's kindergarten teacher Mrs. Adriana Iribe who is the "BEST" teacher. Mrs. Adriana Iribe not only cares about the well-being of her students but she is very active and involved in making sure every child is academically successful. Thank you Urbita Staff for your hard work and dedication to the most valuable treasures our children.

    As a parent I am happy to have my child in this school and very happy with the programs they have. During back to school night I was very glad to find out that this year 2013-2014 Urbita is implementing a music class which will have an impact on the intellectual social and personal development of children.
