Through our participation in Spanish Partial Immersion, Gunston is an International Spanish Academy site. International Spanish Academies are part of an international cooperative educational project between public schools in the United States, Canada, and the Ministry of Education and Science of Spain. Goals include:
- to encourage students to recognize the value of a multicultural education.
- to help to foster international relations and understanding between the United States and Spanish-speaking countries.
- to support the overall academic success of students, and help students to develop strong oral and writing skills in both English and Spanish.
- to facilitate student access to centers of higher education in Spanish-speaking countries.
Through this partnership, the Embassy of Spain provides a variety of academic and cultural resources for both teachers and students.
