Bonita Learning Academy

     Tel: (619)422-1777
   
Grades: NS - 8 | 181 students
Bonita Learning Academy has been serving the south bay community since 1998, offering a Preschool and Kindergarten bilingual school that is academic and multicultural.
We also offer an Afterschool Spanish program for students ages 3 to 15.
Conveniently located just east of the 805 freeway, Bonita Learning Academy is a place where children have fun and learn in a carefully constructed curriculum that supports the development of each individual’s potential in two languages (English & Spanish).
At Bonita Learning Academy, we recognize that children are, from birth, creatures of multiple intelligences: observing, listening, absorbing and classifying information in many diverse ways.
At the same time, they are absorbing the values and culture of family and community.
By the time a child is approaching the third year of life, the experiences offered by preschool can serve as enrichment and a safe introduction to a larger loving and caring community.

This is the BEST school that we choose for my Daughter, she just finish her first complete year at BLA and after the last School we notice a HUGE difference in all, but regarding the Academics we can say that any of her friends of the same age can do what she can on Numbers, reading and writing... Thanks for this wonderful Year and see you in August for Kindergarten!!!
