Forest Glen

School of Spanish Immersion

Forest Glen School of Spanish Immersion is the oldest elementary language immersion magnet program in the MSD Lawrence Township and in the state of IN. The Spanish Immersion program is designed for students who want to be challenged academically and are ready to be active in their learning. With our global focus, students develop an in-depth interest in world studies and geography as they make cross-cultural connections analyzing local and global issues and initiatives.

All cultures, races, and genders are recognized, taught, celebrated, and respected at Forest Glen. As comparisons and contrasts are learned and understood, a greater emphasis is placed on one another’s similarities as humans rather than on one another’s differences.

Our immersion students develop the ability to understand and speak more than one language which does not only provide them with immediate cognitive and academic benefits but they also gain additional future ambassadorial and elite employment benefits that separate them from the rest of their competitors. Immersion students are encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning and  take part in programs of education that can lead them to some of the highest ranking universities around the world.

Forest Glen Immersion program also immerse students in 21st century skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving through a multifaceted curriculum equipping students in the four specific disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

What is a Magnet School?

In most Indiana public school systems, students attend the school nearest their home or the one to which they are assigned. Magnet schools offer a unique area of focus and give opportunity for family choice. Each magnet school’s area of focus enhances the core curriculum.
MSD Lawrence Township created a system that allows families to attend their assigned neighborhood magnet school if that is their desire OR apply to attend another magnet school with a different area of focus.
