This new 118,440 SF learning facility houses a 100% magnet program that immerses each student in a culture-rich environment that allows them to become balanced bi-cultural and bi-literate citizens well prepared for an ever growing global economy.

The new $19.1 million school accommodates 750 to 900 students. It will eventually become a K-8 campus to produce bilingual students who are college and career-ready. The new facility includes an open, multi-story learning commons which serves as a computer lab and technology center, as well as a multi-purpose workshop. Other campus features include open and enclosed playgrounds and a vegetable garden.
