From the Director:

Our school strives to provide a quality educational experience to children of all races, faiths, and nationalities. Every child will be treated in a positive, warm, and loving manner. Children pass through various stages of growth and development, and we know that each child’s development is uniquely his/her own and will be handled as such. We want the time children spend at The Spanish Academy to be enjoyable, fruitful, and fun. Children learn through hands-on activities in which they are allowed to mature and develop at their own pace. Our curriculum is based on developmentally appropriate and success oriented learning experiences. We believe educational, social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development should take place with an even balance in each area.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

The foreign language is the vehicle for the content instruction not the subject of instruction. This involves immersing children into a foreign language in a fun and exciting environment. "The Total Immersion Method is the most effective way of developing foreign language proficiency". --ERIC
