Our Review

This school has a dual language program. Dual language programs offer instruction in two languages and are designed to make children fluent speakers, readers and writers in both. Typically, classes mix native speakers of both languages; the language of instruction alternates. Some of these programs have room for children outside the zone.

This school admits children from across a district.

See our School Stats for information about safety, atmosphere and academics.
