Welcome To

Lewton School

Grades preK-6    Global Studies/Spanish Immersion Magnet School
 


Students at Lewton Global Studies/Spanish Immersion Magnet learn Spanish and develop the Habits of Mind and Work necessary for successful global citizenship.

Lewton students learn the same core content as their peers in traditional schools, but benefit from a richer experience that will prepare them for the opportunities they will face throughout their lives and to be at home in the world.

What is Spanish Immersion?

Lewton’s language immersion model has students learning Spanish through a variety of formats and content areas. In the Lewton community, classmates learn from one another and differences are viewed as strengths. This results not only in a deeper understanding of language but a broader acceptance of varied cultural beliefs. The goal is to produce bilingual global citizens who can learn and share ideas in English and Spanish.

What Makes Lewton Special?
 

  • Project-based learning organized around grade-level global themes helps students learn and apply 21st century skills and knowledge.
  • Lewton’s state-of-the-art Language Learning Lab helps students develop Spanish language fluency
  • Partnerships with Michigan State University and a rich and diverse array of community organizations teach students about diversity and human interaction.

World-Class Partners Enrich Global Focus

Lewton effectively creates a truly global experience by enlisting some of the world’s top experts in language instruction. The University of Minnesota’s Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition (CARLA) and the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) are international leaders in second language instruction and learning.
