In The Classroom

At The San Francisco School, Spanish is a tool for communication and a gateway into culture.

We study the vocabulary and patterns of the language and practice them through engaging conversation, storytelling, and real-life experiences.

Creative projects inspired by Latino/Hispanic cultures and customs, include filmmaking, literature, artwork, music, cooking, skits, and more. Students learn to embrace the rich heritage of the Spanish-speaking world—a vital step toward fulfilling their intellectual, imaginative, and humanitarian promise.

One highlight of the Spanish program is the middle school program, which features multiple proficiency levels within each grade-level instruction. This allows our teachers to better meet the wide range of exposure that exists in our middle school students.
