Ours is an immersion Spanish program in which students develop authentic conversational abilities as well as strong reading and writing skills.
6th Grade: basic conversation with beginning level vocabulary; beginning reading fluency; writing conventions. 7th Grade: building fluency in conversation and more complex vocabulary; higher level comprehension in reading; greater confidence and skill in writing. 8th Grade: total Spanish immersion; fluency in complex discussions; reading and writing at a high school level of Spanish II.
This School does an amazing job. I have been teaching there 15 years and seen class after class of girls change into their own womanhood and power. It is the most thoughtful staff and curriculum I have ever encountered.
