Calling all global scholars! 
We are excited to offer incoming kindergartners a Spanish Immersion program at Eisenhower Elementary. This option complements the existing English and Chinese immersion pathways already in place and fits into our larger vision to develop holistic, global thinkers at Eisenhower Elementary. Busing is available for all students who live in the Hopkins School District. 

Committed to creating students of the world 
Creating students of the world is not only an aspiration of our Vision 2031 strategic plan, it is an economic imperative. There is much research that suggests a multilingual workforce is critical to American competitiveness. Vision 2031 calls for cultivating students who are globally-minded, confident, empathetic and have their own voice. We will leverage language as we develop these traits in students — because language is powerful.
