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.
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.
