The AAE Spanish Program is pioneered by Senorita Mercedes.

Because Senorita Mercedes was born in Paraguay and is fully bilingual, she is able to bring the Spanish language to life with real world connections. Students start taking Spanish class in Pre-K and the classes run until the end of Fifth Grade. By the time students leave AAE for middle school, they have an advantage in foreign language.

Students gain an understanding on how to converse in Spanish, including

  • Asking and answering questions
  • stating opinions
  • making comparisons
  • describing common situations

Our AAE super star students are also able to both read and write in Spanish upon leaving Fifth Grade!
