I have had two daughter go through this program with great success, both are fully bilingual. The oldest is now a junior in an eastern private college and on the honor roll. She passed the spanish AP fluency test when she was in 8th Grade. My youngest is a high school junior and remains on the honor roll. As with all schools however, success means total involvement by the parents and we were very involved. Teacher are good with great hearts and desires to make a difference. Educational success doesn't just happen. Parents have to be partners and willing to learn with their child.
I would take my step son else where if I had the choice. This school in unorganized and fails to get back to us when we call with concerns. His teacher is rude and gives us attitude when we ask Simple questions like why he is isn’t given homework. ect. Horrible school. They do all their work in Spanish. My step son doesn’t even know how to read or count in English? It makes no sense.
two daughters have gone through the program. last one in fourth grade now. oldest told us after the first day of kinder that the only word she understood was her name. after a few weeks she got it. after 6 years she is bilingual. awesome school and a great staff. the real shame is the shrinking budget and ever increasing class sizes. we have driven 20 miles for years to take our children here. do not regret it at all. as others have stated, you must be willing to get involved and work to make this type of education benefit your child. we did and are very happy.
Immersion means just that. Many of the teachers switch back to English as soon as difficulties arise communicating their thoughts in Spanish. This defeats the purpose of an immersion program. The school wide self manager program is a waste of time and the subjective way some of the teachers carry out this program is damaging to a student's self esteem. Overall, I have found about 30% of the teachers effective, insightful, caring and engaged.
