|Description:||Austin Eco Bilingual School was founded on the belief that reaching children at an early age is the best time to provide experiences that prepare them to successfully maneuver in a multilingual and multicultural world. The school is committed to diversity and developing an understanding and an appreciation for a variety of cultures.
As part of an overall educational approach, Austin Eco Bilingual School utilizes a Spanish language program in which the children are immersed in Spanish while participating in activities. Once a child reaches the age of four, French and Mandarin are also introduced once a week.
