"We chose GCCS Spanish Immersion because of the academic benefit bilingual education provides.

What is Spanish Immersion?

Immersion is a method of language instruction in which the second language is the medium rather than the subject of instruction.  The classroom environment becomes the setting for second language acquisition through core subject content instruction, intentional language study, educational discourse, and social interaction.

Our Spanish Immersion program allows students to build a love for the language and culture of Spanish speakers across the globe.
