Imagine your child learning French in pre-school.

That will become a reality for parents in Hoboken because of Tessa International School on Monroe Street, the first bilingual pre-school. The children are attending a transitional program before the school opens.

Isabelle Bonneau founded the school that will serve students aged 2 to kindergarten. They will have the opportunity to be fully immersed in the languages of the world —specifically French, Spanish or Mandarin.

The school will officially open this September. Bonneau says there’s a huge demand for bilingual education in the area. She expects that at least 50 children will participate in fall classes.

Bonneau hopes to one day expand Tessa International so as to cater to primary school students as well.
