Nuestro Mundo, Inc. holds the charter for Nuestro Mundo Community School, a Spanish-English dual-language immersion school within the Madison Metropolitan School District.
NMCS’s dual-language immersion philosophy is to develop literacy in both languages. Our philosophy prepares students for success in an increasingly global economy, while promoting acceptance and understanding of cultural differences and strengths.
NMCS benefits from a high level of parent engagement from both Spanish-dominant and English-dominant families. The Community Group provides a forum for parents, teachers and the administration to enhance communication and build a sense of community by participating in the governance of the school. Such participation contributes to a sense of pride and ownership where families feel that they have a real voice and a stake in the school.
Through the 2015-16 school year, the Nuestro Mundo Community Group put on the following events with the financial help of Nuestro Mundo, Inc.
- Parent School Partnership
- Summer program for families
- Back to school ice cream social
- Monthly Community Group meals and meetings
- Día de los Muertos celebration
- Family movie night
- Glow Dance
- Día del niño
- Teacher appreciation week
- Kindergarten and 5th grade promotion parties
