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.

International Spanish Academy (ISA)

The International Spanish Academies constitute an educational program in English and Spanish through the collaboration of American and Canadian public schools and the Ministry of Education and Science of Spain, which aims to fulfill the following objectives:
  1. Encourage students’ academic success in all subjects of the curriculum.
  2. Educate students in the values of multicultural education to foster international communication and respect among different cultures.
  3. Train students to express themselves and effectively communicate in English and Spanish in their personal relationships and in an academic setting.
  4. Facilitate and promote the access of students to prestigious centers of higher education throughout the U.S., Spain/Europe and Latin America.
  5. Prepare the students for their professional development in an international context.
  6. Promote the participation of distinct groups and social sectors of the community in an integrative, educational project.
