Twin Cities German Immersion School: "Educating children for bilingual, informed and active world citizenship".
Our German language immersion program provides an enriched education at an age when children learn languages most easily.
Our curriculum is based on current research and aligned with national and state standards. It is well-rounded, academically challenging and taught entirely in German, using textbooks from Germany. Instruction is centered around engaging themes, providing the framework for daily lessons which emphasize essential skills in all subject areas.
A low student / teacher ratio and emphasis on group work allow for differentiated instruction. Music, visual arts and drama are integrated with academic instruction, as we believe that the fine arts encourage a child's creative capacity and we recognize imagination as central to children's intellectual development. English language arts instruction is introduced in 3rd grade. We work and learn in a supportive atmosphere that values the contributions of all.
Our strong social curriculum is based on the Responsive Classroom model, and we are an inclusive, multi-generational community that encourages parental input and involvement.
Teachers receive specialized training in immersion methodologies and the Understanding by Design curriculum model, and work together with our curriculum director and teaching colleagues in the development of lesson plans. - Key Characteristics: - German language immersion - challenging academics- international perspective -supportive environment - integrated arts education - differentiated learning opportunities - strong parental involvement - central metro location (Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota) - tuition-free public charter school - opening fall 2005 with grades Kg-1st - expanding one grade level per year till 8th grade.
