About Hudson Way Immersion School
HudsonWay Immersion School (HWIS) - formerly Bilingual Buds, LLC - has the reputation as the “best Mandarin and Spanish immersion program in NYC and NJ” due to its unique full immersion model, early start in preschool, teacher training and immersion leadership. Reflecting that reputation, the school’s mission is to develop students as flexible thinkers, culturally aware and linguistically capable in at least two languages.
HWIS is the oldest independent Mandarin and Spanish immersion program in the NY/NJ area with two campuses – one in NJ and a new beautiful location in west midtown Manhattan. The school is poised to more than double enrollment growth and plans to expand to include grades 7 & 8 by 2021.
