K-8 Dual Language Immersion

In the Dual Language Immersion classes, students learn a second language (whether it be Spanish or English) without compromising the first. Spanish is emphasized in the early grades. Therefore, English speakers are exposed to the target language of Spanish. Spanish speakers, conversely, have the opportunity to expand their vocabulary and build a strong base in their primary language so that they can successfully acquire English orally and later transferring reading and writing skills into English.
