Schools Dual Language Immersion program is offered to rising kindergarten
students. At this age, students have a tremendous ability to understand and
learn a language other than their first language. Our program uses a 50/50
model in which students learn in English and Spanish on a daily rotating basis.
Our goal is for students to be bilingual and bi-literate, and gain an
appreciation for multiculturalism.
• Students are held to the same high academic standards.
• Both English proficient and non-native English-speaking students are placed in the same classroom to promote bilingualism, bi-literacy, and multiculturalism.
• Students begin the program in kindergarten and continue with the same class through the fifth grade.
Goals of the Dual Language Immersion program:
• Students will develop high levels of proficiency in their primary language and a second language (English and Spanish).
• Academic performance will be at or above grade level in all content areas.
• Students will demonstrate positive cross-cultural attitudes and behaviors.
