Welcome To Felicitas Mendez International School
At Felicitas Mendez International School, we foster social, emotional and educational growth in both English and Spanish through collaborative partnerships, a rigorous academic environment and an inclusive community. Our vision is to empower bilingual, biliterate, and multicultural life-long learners, leaving no students below grade level in their native language and no students below grade level in math. We are devoted to making every minute at school count toward reaching our academic goals.
CULTURAL ENRICHMENT THROUGH DUAL LANGUAGE
Research shows that bilingual children who are educated in their second language outperform students who speak and learn only in their native language. Students at Felicitas Mendez go beyond learning another language to learn about other cultures. Students learn to read first in their dominant language, then they spend equal amounts of time building literacy in English and Spanish. Math is taught in English, while science and social studies are taught in Spanish. Students build fluency in both languages through their daily interactions with peers and teachers.
