What is Dual Language?

The Wharton Elementary Dual Language philosophy promotes both Spanish and English as languages of equal value. We feel that by placing importance on both languages we are not only preparing our students for the multi-lingual, multicultural world we are living in, but they are also learning the importance and value in respecting other cultures in our increasingly global society.
