Scoop: Check Out Science, Language & Arts International School: An Independent Nursery to Grade 8 School in Brooklyn

While school has been a challenge for so many families this year, parents are reaccessing the best school options for their kids. SLA is a school to consider.

Science, Language & Arts International School is an independent school focused on hands-on science, arts, and math and committed to providing children with a rich and rigorous multilingual education in French and Mandarin. Since its founding in 2011, SLA has grown in grade levels, language tracks offered, and campuses conveniently located in Downtown Brooklyn and Carroll Gardens. And with goals towards providing their curriculum from the very start of a child’s education, the program will be expanded by 2024; it will serve students from Nursery to Grade 8 in French and Mandarin.

SLA values inclusivity and strives to be a school that reflects the racial and socioeconomic diversity of its local community. SLA is an anti-bias school and admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, gender identity, or creed to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

Check Out SLA!
Join SLA for an upcoming virtual info session to learn more about open seats, scholarships, and admission to its Middle School Program! SLA will share their nurturing environment and share how their rich and rigorous multicultural education in French and Mandarin, with a curriculum, focuses on the hands-on integration of science, visual arts, and math in an immersion setting. Pre-K through Grade 5.

All information sessions will be held remotely via Zoom until further notice.
These sessions offer families the opportunity to meet members of SLA’s diverse community, visit their vibrant classrooms, and ask questions about life at SLA.
