Spanish Class

Students are introduced at an early age to the Spanish language by learning vocabulary words and conversational phrases using interactive techniques with aids such as songs, games, flashcards, videos and puppetry.

As they transition to elementary grades, students are able to acquire writing and reading skills, along with grammar concepts integrated with oral communication. Cultural activities and hands on learning techniques such as crafts, games and a few cooking classes, along with the use of technology, assist students to make connections and comparisons thus better understanding and grasping concepts while creating an awareness of how they can better impact their community now and in their future lives.

The upper elementary and middle school classes are led mostly in Spanish by a native speaker instructor and students are expected to interact among themselves in Spanish. High school level programs are introduced where students are able to read, write , speak and listen to conversations in Spanish using different media such as audios and videos.
