The Mansfield Spanish Immersion School had a special visitor Wednesday.

Ohio Superintendent of Public Instruction, Doctor Richard Ross, stopped in for an hour Wednesday morning to tour the unique spanish-language school, and meet with the teachers and students.

He says he's impressed with what he saw, and is not surprised the school was rated as "excellent" on the state report card.

Ross would like to see foreign language schools like this created across the state.

Superintendent Dan Fruend is pleased Ross appreciates the value of the school.

The Mansfield Spanish Immersion School opened in 2007 with a kindergarten class of sixteen.

A grade was added each year, and it now has an enrollment of 114 in kindergarten through fourth grade.

Dan Freund hopes to expand through eighth grade in coming years.
