Spanish Immersion Academy (iInspire Academia)
California Elementary School is a public TK-5th grade school in the Orange Unified School District. After extensive surveying of parents in the community during the 2013-2014 school year it was determined that parents were interested in a Spanish Immersion program to better prepare students to compete in a global economy. The Spanish Immersion program called the iInspire Academia started in the 2015-2016 school year with our first Kinder class.
The iInspire Academia is a one-to-one iPad academy integrated into a Spanish Immersion curriculum.
