About

Academia De Languaje Y Bellas Artes (ALBA) was founded on the conviction that bilingual students can reach their full potential academically, in English and Spanish, when challenged through rigorous academic studies, the integration of fine arts, the development of critical thinking, problem solving, and creative abilities. Self-confidence and self-worth are developed as the students' cultural identity is both recognized and valued through curriculum. Partnerships with local arts organizations provide enrichment opportunities in music, art, and dance. Parental involvement is a vital component to the success of students. Families at ALBA support the school's uniform and no transportation policies in order to maintain focus on learning.

Families can enroll in this school using the online application at mpsmke.com/EnrollMPS.
