Herod’s Dual Language is a cohort of approximately 22 students per grade level. The admission process is done once a year during a predetermined window. The application for the 2019-2020 school year will be available September 28, 2018. All applications should be turned into our school by the due date. No online application is available for our Dual Language Program. Once students’ applications are received, all applicants are tested to determine language dominance and placed in one of two groups: English dominant or Spanish dominant. A lottery is conducted to select students. For each group, students zoned to Herod are drawn first, followed by students with siblings in the Dual Program, and then the rest of the students. When all the available positions are filled, we continue the lottery and create a waiting list with the remaining students. If any of the students selected declines a spot in the program, we call the next student on the waiting list.
We appreciate your decision to choose Herod Dual Language as your school and program of choice. Since acceptance into the program depends on many factors, we encourage parents to have a back-up plan and apply to several Dual Language schools.
Interested parents are encouraged to visit the school and discuss the program.
