Maggio Multicultural Academy opened in September 2016 providing instruction completely in English for K3 through K5.
Children in 1st and 2nd grade will also have one hour of Spanish language instruction daily and three hours of Sociales weekly, to provide them with the necessary skills to read and write in Spanish.
Native English Teachers
All teachers will be Native English speakers or have an advanced level (near native) English proficiency. All assistants will be required to know English at an advanced beginner or intermediate level.
The curriculum of the school will be based on American Learning Standards while incorporating Dominican Curriculum Standards as well. Students will learn about and appreciate multiculturalism and different countries and places around the world each month.
Unlike other schools where parents need to buy multiple notebooks for their children, high priced books and other materials, most learning materials are included in the price. Parents of K3 – K5 only need to purchase the following: 1 backpack, 1 notebook, 1 pack of baby wipes and 1 water bottle (thermos). Children in 1st and 2ndgrade only need to buy: 1 backpack, 1 agenda and 1 water bottle (thermos). There is a $100 USD book fee for 1st and 2nd grade, which will include all the books and notebooks for each subject.
