Robbinsdale Spanish Immersion School is a K-5 program where students learn Spanish as a second language through immersion. Because of the program’s structure, students must begin Robbinsdale Spanish Immersion School in kindergarten. All classroom instruction is conducted in Spanish. Students learn to read, write and speak in Spanish, and begin to understand Spanish-speaking cultures.
Each year, Robbinsdale Spanish Immersion School admits 110 kindergarten students. Both half-day and tuition-based, full-day kindergarten options are offered.
Parents interested in enrolling their child in the school are required to complete and submit an application. Kindergarten students with siblings currently enrolled in Robbinsdale Spanish Immersion School who meet the application deadline and whose families live inside the Robbinsdale Area School District boundaries will automatically be enrolled through the sibling preference policy. (Families with children enrolled at Robbinsdale Spanish Immersion School prior to the 2002-03 school year who live out of district also may be enrolled through the sibling preference policy.) If the school has more applicants than space available, new kindergarten students will be selected by lottery.
