    Minnewashta's Spanish Immersion program has been outstanding. My daughter has had a very positive experience both in the English and Spanish. The teachers are engaging and loving. Many teachers are from Spanish speaking countries giving the children a very well rounded and real experience. Their kindness extends beyond the school as many teachers initiate cultural experiences outside of the class room. I would highly recommend Minnewashta Elementary School.
    Amazing teachers and administrators. Very impressed with the philosophy of the school and how everyone approaches and supports the students.
