SMMUSD’s award-winning dual immersion elementary school, Edison Language Academy, announces informational sessions for parents of children who will be entering Transitional Kindergarten or Kindergarten in 2022-2023.

To find out more about Dual Immersion, the Edison program, and how to apply, sign up to attend one of four informational sessions in December.

For an on-line webinar from the comfort of your own home, sign up for one of these sessions:

December 2 – 5 p.m. Spanish; 6:30 p.m. English

December 9 – 5 p.m. English; 6:30 p.m. Spanish

Additional information about parking, health screening, and tour location is available upon registration.

If your child will be entering 1st-5th grade next year you are welcome to attend and learn more about our school. However, space beyond Kindergarten is very limited and admissions decisions will not be made until May/June 2022. All applicants will be language screened to make sure that Spanish skills are adequate to access a program where students are already reading, writing, and learning content through Spanish.

Edison is a public school and part of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. However, it is not a neighborhood school. Because the dual immersion model and Edison admissions criteria are so different, applications are only available upon family completion of an orientation session. Applications will be due by January 15, 2022.
