“Educación sin fronteras”
Junta de Castilla y León
y Sweetwater Union High School District
The goal is to establish a program that begins with primary
students up to the university level. We wish to create a
consciousness in the student body that makes them aware of
the advantages of becoming biliterate, bilingual, and
bicultural, and to further emphasize the importance of higher
education as a tool for success. Having this mindset at an
early age will give students the opportunity to establish a clear
vision toward academic and life-long objectives.
