Students are immersed in the Spanish language from kindergarten through first grade, which means they are taught 100% in Spanish for the first two years. English classes are reintroduced at the second grade level. The new facility features classroom wings, a gymnasium, cafeteria with raised stage, library, administrative offices, and playgrounds.
The mission of the Columbus Spanish Immersion Academy is to promote, through a global approach, the acquisition of the Spanish language and an awareness and knowledge of the various cultures that are encompassed by the Spanish speaking world.
The goal of this program is to provide the highest quality education for all students through the cooperation of staff, parents, and community representatives in a caring, productive environment, which is conducive to meeting the total needs of each child. The new building has a capacity of 550 students
The project is seeking LEED Silver certification.
This project included the abatement and demolition of an existing school building on the project site and the construction of a new school building for grades Pre-K through 8th.
We are confident that it will nurture the growth of our program as we continue our work to support the development of our bilingual and bi-literate students as they move forward to become a part of a global community.Principal | Columbus Spanish Immersion Academy
