Our after-school Spanish classes are offered once a week for elementary students (K-5). All classes are taught in a full Spanish immersion format by experienced teachers. These classes are the perfect way for Spanish Schoolhouse Flower Mound graduates to continue their Spanish learning after they age out of our other programs! Of course, new students are also welcome to join. Each class is 1.5 hours long and engages students in Spanish conversation and hands-on activities according to weekly themes. The classes are offered in the spring and fall semesters and each semester is 12 weeks in length.
Spanish Schoolhouse Flower Mound offers one of the best Spanish immersion curriculums in the Denton area. We opened our doors in 2008, and now we’re happy to welcome children K-5 to participate in our immersive after-school programs! Every teacher shares Spanish Schoolhouse’s vision of teaching Spanish in a safe, fun environment that promotes kindness and cultural appreciation.

After School FAQs
My child has not had any previous Spanish. Can they attend this class?
Yes! Our after-school program is an active, hands-on learning environment, where all students can join in the fun, regardless of their level of Spanish. Because it is an immersion class, our teachers dramatize and “act out” what they are saying, and use visual materials as cues. This helps ensure that students understand without translating.
How is the class taught?
Students may enroll for one class per week. Each week has a theme and each theme includes common vocabulary, verbs, and phrases. Conversation and whole language are emphasized!
Class activities include reading stories, acting out plays, participating in games and contests, singing Spanish songs, and more. A smaller, but important, portion of the class is based on reading and writing workbook exercises.
Do you allow make-up classes for missed days?
If a student misses class, there are no make-ups available. If a class is canceled due to inclement weather, a make-up day will be offered.
How can I help reinforce what my child learns in class?
Parents receive an outline of the class curriculum which highlights the weekly themes, vocabulary, games, activities, and songs we work on in class. Ask your child to demonstrate these at home and try to use the new vocabulary words day to day!
In addition, we’re fortunate to live in an area with many opportunities for Spanish language exposure. Look for Spanish story times and activities at local libraries, try children’s programming on Spanish television networks, attend cultural events in the community, or explore the wide variety of Spanish learning websites and apps.
