A community of inspired learners

At The K-W Bilingual School, we inspire a love of lifelong learning and empower each student through a well-rounded experience. With academic pursuit as our cornerstone, we provide many opportunities for all students to excel – in the classroom, in their communities and beyond. Founded in 1966, we offer Kindergarten through Grade 8 bilingual education of the highest quality and are nationally recognized for our academic excellence. We tailor learning experiences to individual needs and value our parents as partners in nurturing the successful growth and development of our students. We believe that when communities, families and schools are united in support of each other, our students will flourish.

Speaking and understanding more than one language is an asset (and an increasing necessity), in today's vastly diverse world.

Whole Child Development

We empower students as creative and engaged citizens, nurturing self-expression, understanding of others, and critical problem solving.

Full Day Kindergarten

A strong instructional foundation in early literacy skills and math skills, paired with the nurturing of curiosity, provides the basis for future academic success.

“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.” ― Brené Brown
