The Spanish Immersion program is designed for students who want to be challenged academically and are ready to be active in their learning. With our global focus, students develop an in-depth interest in world studies and geography as they make cross-cultural connections.
All cultures, races, and genders are recognized, taught, celebrated, and respected. As comparisons and contrasts are learned and understood, a greater emphasis is placed on one another’s similarities as humans rather than on one another’s differences.
Families currently enrolled in Dual Language Programming at Forest Glen, Skiles Test, and Sunnyside do not need to re-apply. Siblings of currently enrolled students wishing to attend must complete the early application.
