San Miguel School is a great place to learn and grow. Our students have a well-rounded experience that includes Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies but also extends into drama, dance, music, and visual arts. Our students are also working on becoming 21st-century learners. With our common core standards adoption, we are also working on deepening student understanding and knowledge past rote memorization.
San Miguel is also home to Juntos, Sunnyvale's Dual Immersion Spanish/English Program, which launched in 2015. San Miguel was also named an Ashoka Changemaker School in the spring of 2014. It's an exciting time to be in San Miguel!
San Miguel comprises a community of administrators, teachers, parents, and students willing to work, change, and grow as we work together to provide each child with a quality education. We truly believe that it takes a collaborative effort to enable all students to meet the social, multicultural, and technological challenges of the twenty-first century. As a result of our collaboration, San Miguel is committed to the beliefs that:
- high expectations yield high results
- a safe and nurturing environment supports learning
- education is the right of every child and the responsibility of the entire community
Juntos Spanish-English Dual Immersion Program
In Juntos, a Dual Immersion Spanish-English Program your child will benefit from all the things that make Sunnyvale School District special — high academic standards, academic rigor, rich curriculum, and caring instruction. In addition, dual-immersion students:
Develop outstanding analytical skills that strengthen learning overall
Become fully literate in both English and Spanish during their primary school years, giving them an advantage in high school, college, and beyond
In Juntos, Spanish for "together", students will learn Spanish and English at the same time, achieving bilingualism and biliteracy. Regardless of what language you speak at home, this program will develop your child’s ability to speak and read academic Spanish and English, as well as strengthen all academic areas.
Juntos is offered exclusively to Sunnyvale School District’s students. It is open to all district kindergartners and first graders, but space is limited and students will be selected on a first come, first served basis.
No previous language skills are required. For more information on San Miguel Elementary’s Juntos Spanish-English Dual Immersion program, please call (408) 522-8278.
