Dual Language or Two-Way Language Immersion is a unique educational program where children learn to think, read, write and communicate naturally in two languages: English and Spanish. Native Spanish and native English-speaking students study together, beginning in kindergarten, in this intensive K-12 program, to be biliterate in both languages.
The Dual Language or Dual Immersion programs can provide unique teaching and learning opportunities for all its participants: students, parents, teachers, administrators, and communities. Dual Immersion education serves as a linguistic and cultural bridge for all, and it helps to embrace and promote linguistic and cultural pluralism inside and outside the school. The District is committed to supporting our schools in offering Dual Immersion programs that will prepare our future citizens with the necessary academic and linguistic competencies to be highly qualified individuals and to be competitive in a global society.
