Dual Language provides instruction in Spanish and English.  Students develop speaking, reading, and writing proficiency in two languages.  Based on registration numbers, our Kindergarten dual language program may take one of two forms, as explained below:

  • One-Way Dual Language:  Spanish speaking ELs are scheduled into a dual language class with instruction in Spanish and English.  Students receive instruction from their classroom teacher who also has a bilingual endorsement.
  • Two-Way Dual Language:  Spanish speaking ELs and native English-speaking students are schedule together into a dual language class.  All students receive instruction in Spanish and English.  They receive instruction from their classroom teacher who also has a bilingual endorsement.

The goal of the Dual Language Program is to enable all students to become bilingual and biliterate in both Spanish and English.  Students will be provided with a challenging, enrichment program to promote high levels of academic achievement in both languages, while encouraging and growing positive, cross-cultural attitudes and relationships.
