Forest Glen School of Spanish Immersion is the oldest elementary language immersion magnet program in the MSD Lawrence Township. The Spanish Immersion program is designed for students who want to be challenged academically and are ready to be active in their learning. With our global focus, students develop an in-depth interest in world studies and geography as they make cross-cultural connections. Students begin their education in kindergarten with most (~80%) of the subjects taught in Spanish and few subjects taught in English. Then as children advance in grade level the distribution of teaching shifts towards more subjects taught in English with 5th grade representing 50% of subjects taught in Spanish and 50% taught in English. All cultures, races, and genders are recognized, taught, celebrated, and respected at Forest Glen. As comparisons and contrasts are learned and understood, a greater emphasis is placed on one another’s similarities as humans rather than on one another’s differences.
