Early years students listen attentively to a teacher

Through our unique bimodal/bilingual program, students are provided with access to instruction through spoken language and American Sign Language, depending on their individual needs. Our program places a clear emphasis on the language development of our students through field trips, additional language programming, and enriched options classes. During options classes, students have the opportunity to explore drumming, robotics, yoga, computer, American Sign Language and more. We consistently provide a state-of-the-art approach to language and learning that meets the needs of our diverse Early Years population.
