Spanish

We ignite children’s natural curiosity by providing their first experience with the Spanish language at the Toddler and Primary levels (ages 15 months-6 years). Through an engaging mix of traditional songs, movement games and craft projects, our Toddler and Primary students begin building a strong foundation in Spanish during this highly absorbent period—and are eager to expand upon it in their elementary years. In the Elementary and Middle School programs, we prepare students to participate in our multilingual, interdependent global community. Our instruction emphasizes practical communication skills in contemporary Spanish at all levels. By Middle School, students advance their Spanish reading comprehension and written proficiency by using a variety of textbooks, audio materials and online activities in class. They also explore the cultures and history of the Spanish-speaking world with age-appropriate traditional games, cooking and art projects.
