Our School

About Our School

La escuela de dos Idiomas. For students of Global Prep, the answer to both of those questions is Yes and Sí! Our world is shrinking and the ability to confidently speak a second language will allow your student to function and succeed in high school and beyond. At Global Prep, we immerse our students in a dual language environment to gain proficiency in both languages but also to understand and appreciate other cultures. Our students are taught in both languages through their early years when language acquisition is easiest and most important. Our rigorous curriculum utilizes project based and experiential learning where education not only happens in the classroom, but in our onsite gardens and beehives and throughout the community. Our academic approach is individualized towards your student’s ability. Both struggling and high achieving students will receive the support and opportunities to truly reach their potential. Please note that Global Prep has an early release every Thursday at 12:45 pm.
