St. Louis Language Immersion Schools, Inc. (SLLIS), a federal non-profit organization that operates a network of independent charter public schools, recently moved two of its schools into 3740 Marine Ave. in South City.
The nearly 64,000-square-foot building, which sits on more than an acre of land, was built in 1929. It previously was the site of a Salvation Army.
The location will house the organization’s Chinese school, where approximately 150 students grades kindergarten through fifth grade learn subjects in Mandarin. The new site also has its International school’s recently introduced Middle Years Programme (MYP), which focuses on grades six through eight. This is the first year for the International School’s MYP, which currently has 35 students who are taught both English and a foreign language. SLLIS has The French School on 1881 Pine St. and The Spanish School located at 4011 Papin St.
Hilliker Corporation agent H. Meade Summers represented the tenant, St. Louis Language Immersion School. Prior to this lease, Hilliker Corporation sold the building two times before and previously leased it to another tenant.
