Welcome to Adelante Charter School

Adelante is a Spanish-English two-way immersion (TWI) elementary school which offers the opportunity for children of all backgrounds to become bilingual, biliterate, and multi-cultural.  Two languages and rich cultural experiences are woven into each child’s day through outstanding academics. Students are taught in a supportive environment to excel as creative, empowered thinkers and problem-solvers. We invite you to visit our school, where you will find students actively engaged in becoming self-directed, lifelong learners in two languages. Read more…

 1st Play Structure for Adelante Charter School 

Our PTSO is raising funds for our very first play structure. In June we are placing two classrooms on our current playground to accommodate growth. With less space for playing we have decided to install a play structure for our students. The PTSO is currently engaged in a variety of fundraising events along with this Go Fund Me campaign. We expect to install the play structure this summer. Consider helping us achieve this goal and make this dream come true! Please share this message with your family and friends. Here is the link for you to share. gofundme.com/32t2g46c
