My daughter will be entering kindergarten this coming Fall, and the school we are zoned for is terrible, so she won't be going there. Now I have entered the lovely world of magnet, charter, and private school applications. The thing I am stumped on, though, is for the public magnet option. There is a montessori option as well as a dual language Spanish immersion option. Both are rated very highly (the Spanish rated slightly higher). I have always dreamed of both Montessori and bilingualism for her (I am half Colombian), so I am totally torn. I love the Montessori method, but I am also intrigued by this language academy because it is recognized by the Spanish government and the kids are completely proficient in Spanish by the time they leave elementary school! The SI school is K-8, and the Montessori is K-6. Any thoughts??? Thank you in advance!
