Thank you so much for starting this beautiful school so that our next generation can continue our language and customs. You and the school have been a huge blessing to our family. I will never be able to properly express how thankful we are for the experience, your love, and your attention. You have made a difference in my son’s life forever. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
With four young children, our family has experienced a variety of preschools. It wasn’t until we enrolled our third child at The Spanish Academy that we felt like we’d found the perfect fit. The Spanish Academy truly grows the whole child—heart, mind and body. From the nurturing staff to the well-rounded curriculum and the reliable communication, hands down, TSA is the best preschool in metro Atlanta. This is a school run by smart professionals who are also dedicated mothers, which means your family is in the best of hands. You can see the hallmarks of a successful school in the engaged parent community—everybody’s happy!—and in the results, children eager to go to school and learn in another language. My daughter made a smooth transition from TSA to one of Atlanta’s top private schools, where she continues to thrive in both her English and her Spanish classes. She fondly prepared her younger brother for his start at TSA this year, and we are amazed by how much he’s already learned having just turned three. My only wish is that I’d found TSA sooner for my two other children!
It’s hard to put in to words what The Spanish Academy has meant to my family. As the daughter of a Cuban refugee, it is important that my children speak Spanish, and TSA immersion preschool has helped us preserve our Spanish heritage and culture. From the first day we toured I knew it was the perfect school. Since that day, 5 years ago, all three of our children have attended, and thrived; from the 2’s class all the way up to kindergarten. I remember being very impressed to find my kindergartner reading to his siblings in both English and Spanish by mid year! The love and attention they receive is unparalleled, the education superb, and their grasp of the Spanish language impressive. From the teachers and administrative staff to the parents and other students, the community is one you will fall in love with. We have made lifelong friends and memories we will forever cherish. You will not find a more nurturing immersion environment for young children in all of Atlanta.
The only regret that I have about the Spanish Academy is that I did not know about it sooner! My oldest daughter was already in kindergarten by the time I discovered it and so she has only been to their summer camps (which she loved). I have had the pleasure of having three children go to TSA, however, and each and every year I am amazed at how wonderful the teachers are and what a loving and nurturing environment TSA is. It is so evident that the staff all love each other, love the kids, and believe in the mission of the school. They never tire at creating the ideal environment for the kids to learn the preschool skills they need, all while doing it in a foreign language! Their patience and enthusiasm is unparalleled. I cannot recommend this school enough!
My daughter has been attending the Spanish Academy in Buckhead for 3 years. I could never have imagined how happy we would be at this small and intimate school. The teachers and the director are some of the warmest women I have ever met and they treat everyone like family. I love the hands-on learning and the academic progress. My daughter has learned MORE at the Spanish Academy than my other children learned in “regular preschool” plus she is learning Spanish! I’m amazed that she is actually speaking and understanding Spanish at such a young age! Seriously, the Spanish Academy is the best!
My daughter just completed her first week of Spanish camp and she had the BEST time! The teachers were incredibly sweet, the curriculum was very structured and the overall organization was very impressive. My daughter would pop out of bed every morning and scream, “It’s time for Spanish camp!” As parents, it makes us so happy to see her in a fun, loving and educational environment. We’ve been so impressed with the camp that we have enrolled her in the Spanish school this fall. Kudos to the teachers and director for putting together such a neat program!
My son has had another wonderful year. You guys do such a wonder job! His language had grown so much. I can not wait for my two year old to start next year. Thanks for everything.
I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how happy we have been with the Spanish Academy this year. It was a year ago that I was searching for the perfect preschool for Shyla and late one night I found the Spanish Academy on the internet. It really sounded too good to be true, as it sounded exactly like what I was looking for. We made the appointment for a tour and I was so impressed with the nurturing learning environment.
I can say that every day this year, as soon as Shyla realized it was a school day, she couldn’t wait to get dressed and get her “bag” and get out the door to school. I was really amazed that she took to school so quickly and never had any hesitations about going. I know that a big part of that is the staff at your school. No matter who got Shyla out of the car in the morning they greeted her so upbeat and knew her name, all things that would make someone feel welcomed and happy. She absolutely fell in love with Senora Veronica! I can’t tell you how many times over past months I have heard…”I love Veronica” ….when she goes through the list of people close to her that she loves she always includes her.
So I am a little sad, ok a lot sad, to see this year come to an end but I am so thankful of how special you both, especially Senora Veronica, have made this year for Shyla and our whole family. We are excited to begin again in the fall and will certainly miss you all over the summer!
Peace, love and lots of fun for you and your families this summer!
Thank you again for three wonderful years! Gil and I respect and admire you so very much…as a parent, as a business person and as the director of our children’s school.
One never really gets a true sense of just how ‘crazy’ this crazy old planet can be — until you have kids! And there are no words for how much it means to find a place like The Spanish Academy for our kids, especially in those early years, when they truly are still our ‘babies’ ~So thank you for creating that!
Yourself, your teachers and the whole of the Spanish Academy was truly one of the BEST parts of our time in Atlanta, so thank you. We will miss our Spanish Academy family very much, but we are very grateful for the experiences and fun we’ve shared, and will take those memories with us always. Thank you again! Have a wonderful summer and we promise to send post cards!
All three of our children started at the Spanish Academy at the age of 2. I’m proud to say that two have graduated, and we’re excited to watch our third do the same. Not only has their Spanish vocabulary and pronunciation exceeded my expectation as a parent, but they have also exceeded their grade level standards. All of their teachers have become like family to us, and I can’t say enough about each and every one of them. The Spanish Academy has helped us build a priceless learning foundation for our children.
Having just completed their second year I can say without a doubt that sending our children to TSA was the best decision we could have made for their early childhood education. The teachers are FABULOUS. We are confident our daughters are cared for in a loving and affectionate environment. They have learned not only to respect and follow directions from other adults but also to interact and build friendships with their peers. In addition to learning Spanish, they are academically leaps and bounds ahead of their peers at other schools. Most importantly, our children love to go to school, which is a testament to where they spend their days. We could not be more pleased and have signed them up for their 3rd year.
I want to thank you so much for the wonderful learning environment you have provided at The Spanish Academy. Everything has been perfect. It was difficult for me to be separated from my child, but seeing how much he enjoyed attending classes and learning, made the transaction smoother. I am so grateful that you had a kindergarten class this year, I just wish you could have added first grade! My son is so sad to have to go to another school, as he puts it, he wanted to go to The Spanish Academy until he started College. He is looking forward to attending after school classed next fall. We have loved being apart of the Spanish Academy family.
