About Us

Nuevas Fronteras Spanish Immersion Elementary School serves students in kindergarten through fifth grades and is part of South Washington County Schools. Nuevas Fronteras Spanish Immersion Elementary School is the beginning of South Washington County Schools’ K-12 Spanish Immersion Pathway.

At Nuevas Fronteras Spanish Immersion Elementary School, students are fully immersed in the Spanish language, while learning the same comprehensive curriculum as traditional elementary schools in District 833. Students learn about global cultures through their classroom instruction and relationships with teaching assistants from Latin America and Spain.

Teachers at the school personalize learning for students by building relationships. Each student meets with their teacher before the start of the school year and teachers continue to work one-on-one with students during the year.

Nuevas Fronteras Spanish Immersion Elementary School welcomes community involvement and hosts several community events during the year. The school also has an active and welcoming Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO).
