Welcome to Adelante School! We are a K – 5th grade, two-way Spanish immersion School of Choice. We bring together both Spanish and English speaking students and families for the opportunity of a promising future of being bilingual, bicultural, and academically enriched. Our school’s program is founded upon years of research that shows that students from different linguistic and cultural backgrounds can be brought together in a mutually supportive educational environment.
At Adelante we have a warm, family centered culture of nurturing and mutual support. Our beautiful campus is surrounded on two sides by trees and streams in a wooded setting.
We encourage you to visit us and marvel at the capacities of our students to think, discuss, explain, analyze, and problem solve in two languages!
