Love this school so much that I got involved and started volunteering often there. Really wish I would have had a school like GALA growing up. It's not just the language programs but diversity and a global perspective on all subjects and events.
So lucky to have a free language immersion school in our neighborhood. The economic, cultural and ethnic diversity is excellent and important for a rounded healthy education inclusive of heart, mind and spirit.

I love this school! My son started kindergarten this year in the Spanish Immersion program and he is already speaking some spanish. I can't wait to see this blossom! Thank you for giving him the opportunity to become bilingual at an early age!
