90/10 Model

To get the full benefits of bilingual education, a child needs to be fully immersed in a culture. At Alma Flor Ada, we embrace the strength of the 90/10 model for our Spanish immersion program. This means that your little one’s teachers will speak Spanish 90 percent of the time and English 10 percent of the time.

The 90/10 model will raise your children’s cultural awareness through authentic Spanish learning experiences featuring history, customs and traditions, music, technology, and the arts.

In addition, our 90/10 Spanish Immersion program:
