WHY DO PARENTS SELECT A DUAL LANGUAGE PROGRAM?

Dual Language Education provides children with the skills needed to live and work in a multicultural and global economy.
 
 
 
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 80/20 model. Students in Pre K-2nd grade receive 80% of their instruction in Spanish and 20% in English. Each year, thereafter, English is gradually increased into the program. By 5th, instructional time will be 50% in English and 50% in Spanish. Students at this time will develop fluency in both languages.

Research indicates that a Dual Language Program is the most effective model to educate limited English proficient students. In addition, it offers a second language for English speaking students without risk to their academic achievement or English proficiency.
