At EBI we prepare students to thrive and excel in a diverse, changing world with character and empathy. EBI has two campuses in the East Bay: Oakland and Emeryville. EBI is proud to be the only independent school in California to offer an invaluable combination of Spanish Immersion and the world-renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme and Middle Years Programme. Students learn in an immersive environment, where they begin their journey of cultural awareness with native Spanish-speaking teachers from 15 different countries. With the addition of Mandarin in Grade 3, students expand their cultural and linguistic competencies in languages other than English. Upon graduation, our students are fully literate in both English and Spanish, and conversational in Mandarin. How fantastic is that?! In addition, EBI’s Language Acquisition Track in the Middle School allows students with little to no Spanish background to also engage in an immersive Spanish language environment through accelerated Spanish language classes and electives to develop their fluency. We invite you to visit EBI and discover for yourself how inspiration and engagement are at the heart of student transformation.
