As part of only a small handful of schools worldwide that offer the unique combination of a Dual Language/Montessori combined curriculum, we realize you may have many questions about how this works.  To this end, we've provided some links to the left that will help provide some background on these focus areas to help you better understand what Academia Ana Marie Sandoval offers. 

We've also provided a link to the Denver Public Schools main website, where you can get more information on our school district.


Maria Montessori said, "No human being is educated by another person. He must do it himself or it will never be done. A truly educated individual continues learning long after the hours and years he spends in the classroom because a natural curiosity and love for knowledge motivate him from within."

At Academia Ana Marie Sandoval our task is to follow the child's own natural desire to learn. To accomplish this, the prepared environment is equipped with concrete materials in the areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Math, and Cultural (including Science, Art, Music, Geography). The children choose work based on their interests and move at their own pace, by way of guidance from a trained staff. The social graces are an integral part of the day and assist the child with communication and conflict resolution.

Dual Language

At Academia Ana Marie Sandoval, we strive to cultivate an atmosphere where an equitable and quality education is provided for the community that we serve. This includes a Spanish-speaking population as well as an English-speaking population.

In addition, by continuing to develop both English and Spanish, children’s educational and cognitive development is greatly enhanced.  Learning in two languages provides students with access to two groups of literature, an opening up of different traditions, ideas, and ways of thinking which all lead to open-mindedness, flexibility, and an ability to think globally.  We feel that children that pass through our doors leave with the strong foundation they need to live and work effectively in a world where cultural and linguistic boundaries are dissolving quickly.
