9-12 in one building. I say it's unusual because it offers a lot of foreign language for a school as small as it is, I think.

They pretended to teach us Spanish in 1st grade--how to count to ten, colors, foods... We had these coloring books... But I remember how I discovered that my 1st grade teacher really didn't know Spanish. I always loved making those sorts of discoveries. c:< Clint
