Known locally as EBI, private school Escuela Bilingüe Internacional is our sponsor today.
Offering a Spanish bilingual education with an international spirit to Pre-K through 8th graders, EBI is located at two East Bay campuses. Pre-K through first grade are in Rockridge, while second through 8th grade are in Emeryville.
Escuela Bilingüe Internacional (EBI) a Pre-K through 8th grade international school located in Emeryville is excited to now welcome students who do not speak Spanish, but aspire to, to its middle school program.
“Being multilingual is no longer just a nice add-on, it really is now a prerequisite for success in the global economy. Our language program, combined with our focus on STEM and our designated design lab, truly make this an outstanding opportunity for young students,” says Head of Middle School, Daniel Nube.

Community programs are open to everyone, enabling East Bay families to enjoy bilingual programming and get to know the spirit of EBI. Look for Free Spanish Storytime, Summer Camp, After school Spanish, and other enrichment classes in Spanish.
The language teaching model and the International Baccalaureate (IB) reflect the schools core values and form the backbone of the EBI curriculum. Middle school students new to Spanish will study the IB coursework primarily in English but will learn Spanish as a second language while experiencing Spanish immersion in Art, P.E. and Music. In addition to the cognitive and social benefits of learning a second language, this Spanish language experience will allow graduates to attend higher levels of Spanish in high school and beyond.
Jon Fulk, the Head of School, says, “Children, families, faculty, staff and our Board collaborate to create a learning experience based on the best practices in independent, international education. Our goal is to prepare ourselves to make sustained contributions to our families, communities and world.”
We have teachers from all over Latin America and other countries as well. Each one of my teachers is so different and amazing, and they teach with so much love and encouragement. I have learned so much from all of my teachers. Everyone at EBI is like one big family and I feel welcome wherever I go.
