GALA’s mission is to ensure each student achieves lifelong academic success, bilingualism and appreciation for diversity, in an engaging and academically rigorous language immersion environment. As a dual language immersion school, we provide core instruction in two languages: English and a target language (Mandarin or Spanish). For the 2019-2020 school year, we are a K-4 school, and will add a grade level each year to become K-8 in 2023.
What Sets Us Apart
GALA is a dual language immersion school, and the first Mandarin immersion school
in Ohio. Through GALA’s immersion model, students become dually proficient in
English and Mandarin or Spanish by the end of 3rd grade. K-2 students at GALA
are immersed in Mandarin or Spanish for 70% of the school day (approximately 4.5
hours) and English for 30% of the school day (approximately 2 hours).
