Blossoming Academically
and Socially Through Balance

Your child learns crucial social skills, along with language immersion and top-notch academics. Our immersion preschool teaches things like managing their emotions and conflict resolution, helping them develop well socially.

Playful and Purposeful
Morning Routine

“This is the best preschool experience I have had in the eight years of being a parent. I’ve always felt that other preschools in which we were enrolled could be doing more than social development…but they did not. At Crossing Borders my daughter has gained social and academic development while being submerged in the Spanish language curriculum. What a great place to get the language exposure as well as many other things. The teachers and staff are very welcoming and warm. They have passion about their students and what they teach. What a great place we call home.”  – Kimberly Murphy

Plenty of playtime means children can also sit, pay attention, and listen when they have to. Your child will love the dynamic experiences of immersion preschool with lots of games and a fun morning routine, including circle time.

An Environment Where Everybody Knows Your Name

Your child’s morning drop-off will remind you of the old sitcom Cheers, “Where everybody knows your name.” Children and teachers alike greet your child daily, and there is always someone to greet them with a smile as soon as they come into the school.

English, Spanish, Mandarin, & French Teach Them Diversity

The perfect experience is for your child to learn through their environment about diversity and culture. The ability to speak multiple languages is a huge asset in today’s global economy — the more exposure, the better. This is why your child learns through activities that teach them to communicate in English, Spanish, Mandarin, and French.

Teachers Sharpen Your Child’s Strengths and Reinforce Where Needed

Teachers carefully monitor your child’s academic skills and development, helping them out exactly where they need it most. Personalized activities also aim at enhancing their many gifts and strengths, sharpening their skills.

"crossing borders has proven to be an advantageous program to be a part of!"
I have been giving an oral Spanish assessment for the past twenty-three years at Mark Twain Elementary School in an effort to determine if the student is a fluent Spanish speaker. For many years we have had applications from students that were attending Crossing Borders seeking entrance into the dual language program. Over the past three years, I have noticed a significant difference in the amount of Spanish that is being retained by children coming from Crossing Borders. Both orally, receptive, and expressive oral language have drastically improved. Further-more, the children are coming into the dual language program with the ability to read in Spanish, a basic skill that is typically mastered by the end of kindergarten. From the perspective of a dual language coordinator and a kindergarten teacher at Mark Twain, Crossing Borders has proven to be an advantageous program to be a part of.

"We Are Very Impressed!"
We are very impressed by the amount of Mandarin Jui has learned in her short time in the classroom. Our two older children attend the Mandarin Immersion Magnet School (3rd and 4th grade) and are impressed by what she has learned, the tone that she speaks in and the words that she knows. The boys actually have told me some of what she has learned are things that they didn't learn until 1st grade.

"They take children's safety, education and holistic wellbeing seriously"
I stumbled across crossing borders when we moved to Houston. We weren't originally looking for a language immersion program, but we are so pleased that we ended up going this route. The teachers and staff are fantastic and in less than two years my son speaks and reads Spanish! The school is well organized, clean and secure. They take children's safety, education and holistic wellbeing seriously - we can't say enough good things.

"The teachers are so dedicated to their jobs"
I give it a 4.5 curriculum is always improving and the teachers are so dedicated to their jobs. Admin staff always takes good care of parents and students. As a former employee, I can say that I really enjoyed my time working for this company. I made a lot of friends and met wonderful families that I will forever remember. If you are looking for a place where your child can learn a second or maybe a third language with passionate teachers, this is definitely the place 🙂

"we loved crossing borders!"
We loved Crossing Borders! The teachers were always caring and dedicated to all the kids! Communication to parents were always promptly and informative! Our kid made so many good friends and we saw improvements in the Spanish language really fast. Our son went there for 2 ½ years and we couldn’t be happier with the results of of this school. Thank you Crossing Boarders Staff!

" I can say with confidence that all of my children will come out of elementary school fluent in Spanish"
Crossing borders has been so valuable to our family. At first my wife and I were skeptical as neither of us speak Spanish at all, but we stuck with it and the results have been incredible. Our oldest has been there for the past 3 years and is currently in the brand new kindergarten program. He is now not only conversationally fluent in Spanish, but he is reading and writing in both English and Spanish as well. This new kinder program gave us a 2nd chance to enter the HISD dual language program lottery again this year, and we were lucky enough to land a spot. Now I can say with confidence that all of my children will come out of elementary school fluent in Spanish. Our middle child has been there a little over a year and has recently begun to talk and sing with his older brother in Spanish periodically at home. His vocabulary in both languages is expanding at about the same rate. Our youngest will be there in the Fall as soon as she is old enough for the program. The teachers and administration are experienced, patient, kind, and responsive. Anytime my wife and I have had any questions or apprehensions someone is always available to help and explain. Their language immersion method seems intimidating at first and it does take time for non-native speaking children to pick up a new language, but if you stick with it, trust the teachers, and encourage your little ones, the sky is the limit. Thank you Crossing Boarders Staff!

Our twins started CB in June and we couldn’t be more pleased with our experience. The teachers were patient with our girls as they adjusted to school and now they can’t wait to go to school each day and they are learning a lot. They love their teacher, Ms. Radia and talk about her constantly. CB has also done an excellent job putting proper safety protocols in place and remaining flexible during the pandemic. We feel they are doing everything possible to make things safe and comfortable for our girls and for their staff.
Sincerely, Maria L Vidal-Michel
