Colegio Petite is a nurturing, language-rich school that develops the global child: academically, socially, and non-cognitively. We don't teach language as a separate class; rather, we teach both English and Spanish through academic content. We offer a rigorous, K-5 dual language learning community serving Santa Cruz County in Arizona.
This combination of educational quantity and quality will provide a rich, bilingual learning environment for every Colegio student. Our program of core academics in both English and Spanish, enriched by arts, multi-cultural experiences, and 21st Century technology, offers a rigorous and fun learning environment. Students will spend half of their day learning reading, writing, social studies, and science in Spanish, and will spend the other half learning reading, writing, math, and specials in English. Through this 50/50 dual language model, all students will develop both social and academic language in both languages.
