Dual Language Information
We are proud to be a 50/50 Dual Language Model School!
What does it mean to be a 50/50 Dual Language school?:
50/50: Students who participate in the 50/50 program model will receive 50% of their instruction in Spanish and 50% in English in all grade levels, K to Grade 5. All students will receive initial literacy in Spanish and English. Key vocabulary terms and concepts will be taught through crosslinguistic connections to facilitate language transfer. Concepts and terms will not be simply retaught and/or translated the same way they were first taught. The strategic use of language by the students and teacher increases the development of full proficiency in both languages. (Multilingual Programs Guidelines: Dual Language, August 2015)
