Melrose Leadership & Manzanita SEED
Thanks for taking the time to read this. We're moving to Oakland in July. Our kiddo is entering 2nd grade and has been attending 90/10 Spanish Immersion since PreK. His native language is English (at home) but he has attained Spanish fluency over the past 3+ years. We've taken the time to read through the older posts about the OUSD Spanish Immersion programs at the various schools. We're single digits on the waitlist for both MLA and Manzanita (and Greenleaf). We would love to hear some thoughts from some parents out there who are currently attending any of the three schools and why you would or wouldn't recommend attending them. We've taken the OUSD Spanish proficiency assessment so we're good to go there. Would also be curious about the waitlist experience over the past year or two. I know the current system is new-ish but some days it feels like we're waiting to find out whether or not we got into Harvard!! =p
Thanks in advance!
