WHAT IS A DUAL LANGUAGE IMMERSION?
Dual Language Immersion refers to teaching and learning in two languages. Students will be taught part of everyday in Spanish by a Spanish-speaking teacher and in English by an English-speaking teacher. Students are taught the same curriculum as their peers and are expected to master the same state standards while getting instruction in both languages. The Spanish and English-speaking teachers will collaborate on teaching all subject material.
Academic Achievement - students will be at or above grade level in core subjects.
Bilingualism - students will be effective communicators in both languages.
Biliterate - students will be able to read and write proficiently in both languages.
Sociocultural Competency - students will be engaged in a unique learning community that will teach positive cross-cultural attitudes/behaviors and high levels of self-esteem, thus preparing them to become successful global leaders and learners.
Community Engagement - we believe we must engage parents and community stakeholders in order to maximize our educational impact.
School Hours: 7:40 - 2:35.
Students may enter the school building at 7:15 am.
