My wife and I were checking out a pre-school for our daughter near Seattle. There was not a single native English speaker in the entire school: teacher, administrator, or student. All the teachers were from either India or the Philippines. 99% of the students were Indian, one was Asian, and one was eastern European. (This is near Microsoft, so the kids are mostly children of MS employees.)
I have nothing against Indians or Filipinos, but it just doesn’t seem good having foreigners teach my daughter read, writing, and pronouncing English. Am I being overcautious?
My advice is go with the school.
They are for more likely to have a conservative viewpoint on eduction than their native equivalent teachers.
What part of seattle? shoreline has some excellent schools....but budget problems...I think they are selling a school and park to get back in line
