Dual Language

  • Many of our students benefit from two Dual Language programs we offer. Eligible students in kindergarten through fifth grade whose first language is Spanish participate in One-Way Dual Language, which is a form of bilingual education in which students are taught literacy and content in both Spanish and English. Some students in kindergarten, first and second grades participate in our Two-Way Dual Language program, which is similar but welcomes native English speakers as well as native Spanish speakers so they can work together as they become bilingual, biliterate and bicultural leaders. 

    Dual language programs foster bilingualism, bi-literacy, enhanced awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity, and high levels of academic achievement through instruction in two languages.
