Dual language classrooms are a mix of students who are English dominant with students who are Spanish dominant. This mix of students provides optimal interaction and learning. The program teaches students to speak, read and write in Spanish while maintaining a rigorous academic program in English.
Advantages of the Program
- Research shows that students who learn two languages perform better in school.
- Students learn in an ethnically, culturally, and linguistically integrated environment.
- Students become biliterate in English and Spanish.
- Students will be prepared for future linguistic and cultural opportunities
