dual language curriculum in English and Spanish through scientific inquiry

August 2013. I am a parent of a child who has attended Columbus Pre k program over the last 2 years.  My child has excelled academically and she is so excited to be learning another language.  Her teachers were loving and nurturing and the support from other staff and the principal our phenomenal.  I am so glad that she will be attending for kindergarten and I plan on keeping her there through to 8th grade!! One of the best public schools in New Haven, by FAR!!! Tajuana, parent

January 2013.  Though our son is not yet old enough to attend Columbus Family Academy, my husband and I have participated in the School Planning and Management Team as members of the community for about a year. We are especially impressed by the dynamic principal, and dual language Spanish program from preK through 8th grade–the only such program that spans all grades in New Haven, I believe. The school has a warm, inviting, family atmosphere. Because it is not a magnet school, it’s not well known outside our neighborhood; though the school accepts students from across the City. We are excited to learn more about Columbus and dual language education as we explore options for our son. Sarah M. parent
