Brain Boost: Why Biliterate Students Achieve

Arco Iris Spanish Immersion School is at the heart of biliterate education. Learners as young as 5 years old embrace our highly effective immersive spanish language model, and they thrive. At Arco Iris, we want to make sure your child is set up for success, and that’s as easy as enrolling in our tuition-free public charter school.


Biliterate Benefits

Here at Arco Iris, we’re proud of our true multicultural school setting. Our students are exposed to rich language learning, and cultural experiences that embrace diversity in the most authentic way possible. Many of our alumni continue to grow their Spanish skills into college and beyond. Everett Clough, an alum who attended 8 years at Arco Iris recently shared “Being bilingual opens up a ton of doors that you don’t even initially realize existed… it has made life, travel, work and relationship building a lot easier because of my ability to speak Spanish.” 


Countless Advantages

Not only do bilingual students have an advantage when it comes to the college admissions process, but bilingual job seekers are also highly sought after, opening up opportunities for our graduates to find high paying, meaningful careers. 


The benefits of a bilingual education extend past the classroom, and enriches a child’s life for years to come. Check out our list of 5 benefits of a bilingual education, right here at Arco Iris Spanish Immersion School:


  1. More Creative and Flexible Brain
  2. Boost to Memory & Brain Power
  3. Empathy & Understanding
  4. Highly Marketable for a Wide Variety of Careers
  5. Strong Communication & Social Skills
