Our Dual Language Immersion program is based on an enrichment model where instruction is provided to native speakers of English and Spanish, using both languages: one languages is a second language for each group of students. Our Dual Language Immersion program provides periods of instruction during which only one language is used at a time. Spanish is used for a significant portion of the student’s instructional day in the beginning. At each grade level, the percentage of English used increases until an equal combination is reached by sixth grade. The goal is for all students to achieve literacy in both Spanish and English.
