At Brown School, Spanish instruction begins for all students in Kindergarten. In the earlier grades, classes are given by the instructor primarily in Spanish and mirror the curriculum developed by classroom teachers.  Students’ knowledge of a wide-variety of topics and vocabulary is reinforced in Spanish through music, movement, and art projects.  As children move into the later grades, instruction is grounded in Hispanic cultures and formalized to include grammar, more vocabulary, and the increased use of multimedia and authentic materials.  The older children even create an “open air” Hispanic market for the enjoyment of the entire school each spring.
