We live in Jamaica Plain and would like to send our daughter to a bilingual school that teaches classes in both Spanish and English. Are there any such schools in the Jamaica Plain or Boston area for K - 12, or at least the primary grades?

thanks

Pretty sure Mass. eliminated bilingual ed statewide a few years back, so I don't think you'd find it in a public school. There may be schools that have some level of Spanish immersion. I know Milton schools offer that for French.

French? It's a beautiful language with awesomely romantic music BUT why not something useful like Chinese or Spanish!?

Default A couple of two-way bilingual immersion programs

Hi-- I'm also interested in this topic but a few years away from needing a solution, if bilingual ed would be a good fit for my child.

There are a couple of two-way immersion programs that I know of, One in Framingham: Framingham Public Schools

One in Cambridge, MA: Cambridge Public School District -

Here is a directory of two-way immersion programs in US, including some other Boston options: Directory of Two-Way Bilingual Immersion Programs in the U.S.

I have no idea how good these programs are; two-way bilingual ed is not a very popular option for all kinds of political reasons.

Hope this helps!

I know of the Excel schools in East Boston, I'm pretty sure they teach in Spanish because it's a requirement on all their job postings. Might be worth checking out.
