HOUSE OF THE SUN
lntiwasi means "House of the Sun '' in Quechua; and just as the sun sheds its light on us, we want to shed the light of knowledge to our students. We believe that every student has the potential to achieve greatness. And it is our mission to help them reach their full potential.
education is a right
We pride ourselves on being diverse. We believe that diversity of culture, nutrition, language, and socioeconomic backgrounds enriches our community. We are committed to providing an education that is accessible to all, and we believe that each and every one of our students has the potential to succeed in our increasingly interconnected and globalized world. Our goal is to create a brighter future for all children because early education is a right, not a privilege.
You will be joining a community that is supportive, nurturing, and inclusive.
OUR STRENGTH IS DIVERSITY
The word diversity is tossed around a lot these days, but lntiwasi showcases the true power of the word.
We know that when people from all walks of life come together, we can create something truly special. That's why we strive to create an inclusive community where everyone can feel welcome and valued. We believe that this diversity makes us stronger and more creative, and it allows us to better serve our families and the community.
CELEBRATING THE DIVERSITY OF:
Families come in all shapes and sizes, and we believe that our community should reflect that. We are committed to being an inclusive environment, both culturally and financially. Whether a family is affluent or needs tuition aid, we want everyone to feel welcome here.
At lntiwasi, we believe that 100% Spanish immersion is the best way to learn the language. We place an emphasis on second language acquisition and proficiency at an early age. In particular, we offer a Spanish immersion program with a concentration on oral communication.
We believe that the best way to learn a language is using it. For this reason we strive to maintain a low student-teacher ratio to guarantee a personalized education that promotes the use of Spanish in the classroom.
Our educators come from all over the world, and bring with them a wealth of experience and knowledge from various cultures. When you enroll at lntiwasi, you'll have the opportunity to hear accents from a wide variety of Spanish speaking countries, including Peru, El Salvador, Mexico, and Argentina. These variations not only expose them to different dialects, but also open the door for discussions about the many cultural differences between each country.
We allow children to take the lead, with educators acting as guides along the way. We are aware of the demands of an ever-changing world so we are always updating our classrooms, and lessons, and training our staff to stay updated with new developments on how to improve the learning experience for our students.
And because we believe that socialization and collaboration are important aspects of childhood development, we also come together as a group to learn and explore new things. Our teachers are passionate about what they do, and they create safe and loving spaces for every child to grow and learn.
In the classroom, we follow a diverse set of techniques to promote students' critical thinking, linguistic proficiency, and intercultural understanding with a high emphasis on science and art. We believe in building a deep sense of community, and we are committed to establishing a collaborative and caring learning community where parents, families, and teachers have many opportunities to interact and build bonds.
Beyond the classroom, we offer extended hours, after-school enrichment activities, and camps. These diverse experiences help us better understand our students and their needs, while also building a stronger sense of community within the school.
lntiwasi is committed to providing students with nutritious and culturally diverse meals. We believe that food should be a source of enjoyment and exploration, and we are dedicated to offering a variety of items that reflect the rich cultures of our community.
