Miami Lakes Art Academy
5747 NW 151st St
Miami Lakes, FL 33014
This program is only open to Miami Lakes residents, but it is fabulous for bilingual children. Kids can either learn Spanish with a teacher once a week during a one-hour class, or they can do art, homework and prepare for the FCAT in the after-school program. Both programs are bilingual. The hyper-ambitious student has the option of participating in both programs. Call ahead for the bilingual Spanish program as availability is dependent on class attendance.
Highland Lakes Jewish Center
2601 NE 211 Terrace
North Miami Beach, FL 33180
This program is geared toward the Jewish community, but anyone can come. Children ages 5 to 13 can attend the after-school program and learn to read and write Hebrew while participating in arts and crafts, getting homework help and occasionally joining in on karate and drama. It’s great for the young ones, but if you’re looking for a bilingual environment for your teen to learn Hebrew, he/she should go to the adult classes. It’s a great experience for all.
