Importance of Multi-lingualism

Benefits - English  Spanish

While we are always accepting students, most grade levels are filled due to classroom size restrictions.  You can contact the office for information regarding our wait list process.  

We only enroll student into Dual Immersion at the start of Kindergarten. We maintain a wait list for students for the Kindergarten through first trimester of first grade.  After that, only students who come from an approved Dual Immersion Program and/or students who are native Spanish speakers are allowed into the program and only if they show target  language fluency.  Families will need to contact the principal to enroll late.  

What does a Dual Language Program Offer?

This unique program offers English and Spanish speaking students the opportunity to learn and excel in two languages, English and Spanish.  Students in a Dual Language Program are taught in the 90/10 model.  Students in kindergarten receive 90% of their instruction in Spanish and 10% in English.  Each year, English is gradually increased into the program.  By 5th grade, instructional time will be 50% in English and 50% in Spanish.  Students at this time will develop fluency in both languages.
