Our cultural experience is beyond Spain! We host foreign guest teachers from Spain and other Spanish speaking countries.
40% of teachers are first language Spanish speakers. A little less than that are foreign guest teachers that are actually from other countries and spend 1-5 years at NDPA.
The idea is that students who attend our school feel they are attending a high-quality school in a foreign country, with all the immersion programs and guest teachers.
When students come to our school, it feels like an immersed experience in a Spanish-speaking environment. Those that give themselves to that idea, by 4th or 5th grade, are capable of transferring to a foreign country and attend a full day of school and would do just fine—they’ll be fluent in the language.
