Before we start, we will talk about what you will find in this guide. This resource was created in order for you to get to know some of the best options for your children to learn Spanish in the Santa Monica – Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD). (See map). However, we will also show you private schools, after-schools, language classes, as we know that each family has different goals, lifestyles and needs and we want to be a guide for everyone.
Education is always evolving, so if you see, in this guide, something that’s outdated, we will really appreciate it if you contact us, as we want to keep all of the information shown updated so this guide can be useful for parents no matter if they are reading it in 2022 or 2030.
If you’re a Santa Monica – Malibu USD boundaries resident, and this is your first time registering your child at a school in the district, you need to complete their enrolling process meeting the guidelines required. Remember that you must also locate your school as the registration process takes place at your assigned neighborhood school. Some students might be placed in a school outside their residential attendance area by the Superintendent or designee to avoid overcrowding. Parents/tutors of students who are attending schools outside of their residential attendance area will be notified of the school their child will be attending.
In this resource you will find only Spanish Immersion/Two-way immersion as in TruFluencyKids Spanish we believe immersion and early exposure as the best way to build knowledge in a new language for kids.
