International Studies & Dual Language Program
Our Mission is to provide a quality education so that all students are successful learners and responsible citizens with a global perspective. Special events, songs, celebrations, and visuals identify Crestridge as an International Global Studies Magnet. Curriculum at Crestridge is thematic, inquiry-based learning: a study of cultures, regions, and levels of economics and geography. Students are introduced to Spanish and Mandarin Chinese languages in grades kindergarten through two. In grades three through six, students choose a language to concentrate on using the Rosetta Stone Language Program.
Crestridge is also recognized as an International Spanish Academy (ISAs). ISAs are educational centers known for their academic prestige encompassing all grade levels from pre‐K through 12. Crestridge employs a bilingual curriculum for all or part of their student body. Crestridge signed a collaborative agreement with the Ministry of Education of Spain. Our program is carried out within the framework of cooperative activities organized by the Office of Education of Spain in the U.S. and Canada and North American education authorities.
