Academics

grade7_content.jpgThe Amigos School is founded on a two-way language (Spanish/English) immersion model. Two-way immersion is a dynamic form of education that holds great promise for developing high levels of academic achievement, bilingualism, and cultural competencies among students.

Two-way immersion education contributes to long-term preparation of students for the global economy. Bringing culturally diverse students together in situations in which each has equal status spurs motivation and promotes cohesion, community building and cooperation.
