Spanish Immersion Pathway
Preparing students linguistically, academically and socially to contribute to, and thrive in, an ever-changing world.
Spanish Immersion is an educational model where students learn to speak Spanish as a second language during their elementary experience. Students in Spanish Immersion at SoWashCo Schools attend Nuevas Fronteras Spanish Immersion Elementary School (NFSI) for grades K-5, Woodbury Middle School for grades 6-8 and Woodbury High School for grades 9-12. The immersion program follows the same curriculum as other SoWashCo Schools and shares similar learning outcomes. The difference is that classroom instruction is delivered in Spanish. Classroom teachers are fluent in Spanish and are licensed teachers.
Incoming kindergarten families can apply for the Spanish Immersion program through online enrollment. Placement is determined by a lottery, based on the number of applications and space available.
Current kindergarten through fourth grade families can apply for the Spanish Immersion program through an online Intra-District Transfer form. Placement is determined by the number of applicants and space available.
