Pine Street School is New York's only IB World School offering Spanish and Mandarin Immersion, Nursery(2s) to 8th Grade.
In dual language immersion, native Spanish or Mandarin Chinese speakers and native English speakers maintain and develop their first language while acquiring native-like communication and literacy skills in a second language. Students have two teachers in the classroom, each working in English or Spanish/Mandarin Chinese in small groups, all day long. Academic content is taught and assessed in two languages over an extended period of time.
|Teaching approach of the school||
PSS' aim is to create a secure, caring environment in which students optimize their development intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally. Students are encouraged to inquire, think critically, work collaboratively, and to construct meaning, reflect and take action, all the while having their natural curiosity in the world around them stimulated.
