Mar 16, 2017 1542

On September 5, 2017, the Italian School of Portland will officially open the doors on its new, Italian language kindergarten program.  It is the first such program in the state of Oregon.  Classes will be held at the school’s NW Portland location, 1542 NW 14th Ave, which also houses the preschool and playgroup programs.

The half-day program is Monday through Friday from 8:45 am – 12:45 pm.  Lessons are taught in Italian at least 75% of the school day. The remainder of time is spent in English. This 75/25 split allows students to gain valuable bilingual benefits, fully express themselves at necessary times, and to acquire basic skills in English in preparation to join any grade one program.
