We know that our children are our future, and as such we must help them become well-informed, compassionate, and multilingual citizens with integrity and a firm cultural foundation. Education, be it linguistic, intellectual, or cultural, is a necessary part of helping children become this type of citizen.
We began this program because we had a great need and nothing like it existed in the area. As bilingual children go to traditional American schools, they typically lose their native-tongues. This presents a big dilemma for bicultural families, single parents, as well as dual income families.
Golestan provides an education that rivals the best progressive programs in the United States, while offering a fully immersed environment where children do not feel self-conscious about speaking Persian/Farsi.
“I have been part of the Golestan family for 6 months now and from my own experience I can say that Golestan kids are different from other kids being raised in the United States. They are the most confident, caring, and compassionate group of children who value the Iranian culture, nature, kindness, creativity, curiosity and are bound to be responsible citizens of our ever-changing, multi-cultural world.”
