Bilingual Buds, a preschool/primary school on the forefront of immersion education, has named Renee Reyes to head its Summit, NJ campus. The school, known for its pioneering approach to academics in an immersion setting, will grow to Grade 5 under her leadership.

“It is thrilling to be part of a successful school where learning is ignited,” said Ms. Reyes. “Students as young as 2 ½ speak proficiently and effortlessly in the target language. The immersion environment, which includes instruction in English and Spanish or Mandarin Chinese, adds a remarkable dimension to what takes place in the classrooms, and throughout the school.”

Ms. Reyes has over 20 years’ experience in the field of education, working with students from preschool through Grade 8. Most recently Ms. Reyes served as interim Principal in the District of Columbia public school system, and as Lower School Director at Kingsbury Day School, a nationally recognized private school in Washington, D.C. In addition to both administration and teaching positions, her background includes serving as Director of two educational programs operated by the Commonweal Foundation, and working for the Maryland State Department of Education as an education specialist. She brings a wealth of experience to mentoring and training teachers, partnering with parents, and meeting students’ diverse needs. Ms. Reyes holds a M.Ed from Goucher College.
