MI ESCUELITA MAYA
This is a four-week program to address Pre-K to 8th grade through ELA and ELD strategies using explicit direct instruction. Mi Escuelita Maya is a culturally based school. Students' daily work, play, and the music and dance they learn is all culturally based. The center prides itself for its dynamic atmosphere where students are actively engaged in their own learning as they collaborate with others as they practice vocabulary, write, or practice and present their plays. The center counts with a full staff supported by local groups including students from Upward Bound, Latinas in Action, and CA Mini-Corps.
