First dual language Catholic school in Texas

SAN ANTONIO – If you're looking for a great alternative to daycare for your child, St. Mary Magdalen School (SMMS) is a great option in San Antonio!

St. Mary Magdalen School is a dual language Catholic school --and the first dual language Catholic school in Texas.

They have even partnered with UTSA and Boston College to ensure a rigorous and effective dual language program for students.

Dual language program 

St. Mary Magdalen School uses a 50:50 model, with about half of the daily instructions in Spanish and half in English.

Teachers work together as dual language teams while students benefit through daily immersion.

"Dual language is starting at three-years old," said William Daily, principle at St. Mary Magdalen School. "We have a great academic experience as early as Pre-K for them."
