This school has made an incredible impact on my children. My son had attended another area preschool previously and hated it. He cried and cried every time I dropped him off and he was constantly coming home sick. When my son started going to Spanish Schoolhouse, he made a complete 180 degree turnaround. The school director, Jennifer, and the entire teaching staff are hands on and pay attention to every detail when it comes to teaching the children. The atmosphere is very festive and positive. Since my oldest son has enjoyed the school, I've also enrolled his little brother who also has had the same enthusiastic experience. Every morning, the boys get up and are eager to go to school. And let me not forget to mention that they are both well on their way to speaking fluent Spanish as their second language. I took time out of my very busy work schedule to write this review because I knew that other parents may be facing the same challenge we did with having our children be eager and happy to engage in learning. Spanish Schoolhouse has given our children a head start for Kindergarten. I cannot recommend this school enough - they have set the education bar high!
We absolutley LOVE Spanish Schoolhouse! We been attending the school for 3 years and we have had a wonderful experience! All of the teachers are excellent and have a true passion for working with Children. Parents are encouraged to be involved in the school which is very important to me. My oldest daughter just finished the kindergarten program and I am more than impressed with everything she learned. She was reading in Engelish and Spanish half way through the year. I feel so blessed that we found this school!!
This is not just a school, but a family. My child has attended this school 4 years now and, based on our experience, this is simply the best school in Coppell. We've attended and toured other schools, but none of them have the heart and soul that this school has. The teachers and staff are incredibly loving towards the children and do an excellent job teaching them. The previous commenter's review is simply not fair. The administration and staff do a thorough job vetting teachers. They are all highly educated, but more importantly in my opinion, they are wonderful with the children and it shows. My child has learned to read and write both in Spanish and English. The caliber of math instruction is incredible. By the end of Kindergarten, the children are telling time, adding, subtracting and using fractions in both languages. It is simply amazing what these children accomplish thanks to the teachers. The English instruction is also excellent and not to be overlooked. Both English teachers are truly inspiring (as are all the other teachers). My child has blossomed in so many areas thanks to this school. We've had the best experience here as have the other families.
My review is not from my kids attending but inquiring about information from this school for my kids to attend. I requested the educational backgrounds and certifications of the Spanish Schoolhouse's teachers. I will not place my kids into a school without getting information about the educators who work there. This initial interview information, when looking for a suitable school, is often overlooked by parents. Spanish Schoolhouse would not provide this information to me. I always recommend to parents to always request this information while interviewing schools. Good schools have no problem sharing this information.
This is such a wonderful school and awesome learning opportunity for childern. My daughter has attened this school for three years and is very fluent in spanish. We don't speak spanish at home so this is her only interaction. She loves going to school and learning. Everyone is so amazed how she can turn on english and spanish depending on her environment.
