benefits of our magnet program
Zarrow International School serves elementary students from all areas of the Tulsa Public Schools district in kindergarten through fifth grade the popular Spanish immersion program. All the lessons are conducted in that language, until second grade when English is introduced during the last quarter. Thanks to the Zarrow Foundation, all classes have two adults; one as the primary Teacher and the other as an assistant, speaking the Native language. Students emerge as bi-lingual citizens with unlimited opportunities.
Zarrow is a child-centered learning community committed to the development of socially responsible citizens who are lifelong learners!
To apply there are three simple steps outlined below
- 1st Step - December into January

- How to Enroll & Parent Agreement Info
- Immersion Resources
A one hour required 'Kinder Tour' will be a necessary first step in discovering our school which will then lead you into the application process. During the tour, our 5th grade class will have delegates to show you around, providing you an opportunity to step into our Humanities and Kindergarten classrooms in action. Parents are asked to attend this without bringing your child. They will have an opportunity to visit our school once the final step is completed. *Important - A verification letter will be provided to you once the tour is complete.
Parents may apply as early as November, but the Kinder Tour is still required!
Magnet Applications for Zarrow International will be accepted online (need address) or at the TPS Enrollment center. All applicants must only apply to one Magnet School within Tulsa Public Schools District. (You may not apply to both Eisenhower and Zarrow)
The culmination of a student’s years at Zarrow...
...end with the opportunity to study abroad in Spain and Costa Rica in the fall of their 5th grade year. Two programs have been developed to offer Spanish immersion exchanges for eight weeks in Madrid, Spain or four weeks in San José, Costa Rica. Selected students will undergo twelve weeks of “Ambassador Training” sessions to prepare them culturally and emotionally to go abroad. Students return home from the exchanges with new cultural knowledge, a deeper grasp of the Spanish language, and as more globalized citizens.
Zarrow offers the same exchange opportunities to those coming from the same countries!
