Parent Involvement

You must be committed to attend parent conferences, ensure your child's daily attendance, and create at-home routines that support academic and language development.

You are not required to do activities in the second language with your child. Simply ensure there is a routine at home for your child to practice.

Learning a Second Language is Work

Small Class Sizes

Our school has a specialized system that isn't for everyone. Due to the limited available seats, our classes are typically smaller.

This allows your child to not just be another number.

Small Group Instruction

We have Instructional Aides rotating from classroom to classroom to support small group instruction which provides special care to your child's development.

Less Than 500 Students On-Campus

Our school population is small, so your child doesn't get lost in the crowd.

Our Teachers Love What They Do

Teachers have the autonomy to collaborate with each other to design lessons to support primary and secondary language development while delivering successful student outcomes. Work with us to develop lessons where sociocultural skills are integrated to support our students' voice, their metalinguistic awareness, and connection to the world beyond the classroom! We facilitate their growth in skills needed for all industries of the future!
