The Spanish Immersion program is available for Preschool (age 4 by Sept. 1) or Kindergarten students, and is located at South Elementary.  We welcome students from other areas to open enroll in our Spanish Immersion school.   In the school, students are immersed in Spanish while they learn mathematics, science, reading, writing and other curriculum. Immersion means that teachers communicate only in Spanish while teaching students.
