How to find a Persian school near me

Have you ever there a Persian school near me? Perhaps you haven't even considered a Persian school for kids until now. Enrolling your child in Persian school will provide the gift of language - which will last a lifetime. Beyond this, your child will be a part of a community of other children who share a similar heritage. Being part of such a community can help to build identity and confidence.

It can be difficult to find a Persian school. Hopefully this list can help you to connect to a Persian school that will enrich your child's life with Persian language, culture and community. If you don't find a school near you on this list, don't give up hope. In many areas with small Persian communities, language schools do exist but they often times are run out of rented space in other schools, churches or community buildings and can be hard to locate. Try contacting other parents or grandparents in your area who may have leads. Call a Persian grocery or restaurant and ask if anyone on the staff has information. Don't give up, get creative!
