World Language Magnet Program

  • Our Program

    Scarborough High School provides students with a unique learning opportunity through the language magnet program. We are the only high school in HISD to offer a dual language program that is comprised of core content classes and language classes.


    Dual Language 

    Dual language programs promote instruction in two languages as equally important, giving English speakers the gift of bilingualism and allowing English-as-a-second language students to retain their own language while mastering English.
