"A magnificent school. Amazing Spanish immersion program. My boys couldn't be happier!"
— Gerald F.
Bilingualism is an experience that shapes our brain for a lifetime. Research has shown that students who can speak and write in multiple languages outperform their monolingual peers. The benefits of early immersion in a second language are too many to list! Here are just a few.

Our wall of love
"My 3 year old daughter started Intiwasi 2 months ago and we couldn't be happier!! The school is beautiful and all the teachers and staff are super sweet and caring. Coming from a multi-cultural house, I really appreciate the diversity that Intiwasi's environment offers both in term of students and of staff ( The staff is from all over Latin America + Spain and they are 100% native Spanish speakers.)
They offer an after school program and a magnificent varied menu (heavily rooted in Peruvian food - talking to all foodies out there ;)). They also offer enriching activities such as Yoga, Music Classes, Gardening (and will soon be starting Dance and PE).
My daughter has learned so much in her little time there and she absolutely loves it! My husband and I are so so grateful we found such a wonderful place - Gracias Intiwasi!!"
"We are currently enrolled in the Spanish Immersion learning pod program, and I can't rave enough about it and how grateful I am to have found it. The truth is I didn't realize how depressed my 1st grader really was from being stuck at home 'distance learning' by herself for so long until I saw the 100% improvement in her overall mood after just one day at Intiwasi. We were also so far behind and nowhere near the language goal for the school year, so getting to actually be immersed in Spanish they way she should be is such a treat! This is a gem of a school in the middle of a shut down city with so few options. The teachers are wonderful and so refreshingly human, and I can actually say my child is thriving again. She's even made a few new friends!"
