Language Academy Reviews
The Language Academy is a microcosm of the real world for students learning French and Spanish immersion in an environment of cultural and geographical diversity. Families from many different countries come together for the benefit of their children’s education and have formed a “grapevine” to communicate with one another about the needs of their classrooms, teachers and school. They don’t always agree, but they always work things out!
The school’s new athletic field, dedicated by the Mayor, provides the perfect arena practicing good sportsmanship and releasing energy and that’s a good thing in any language!
