Our Dual Language Schools are listed below by language.
One-Way Immersion Programs
In addition to English Language Arts, Language Arts in the target language (French, Mandarin, or Spanish) is also taught. Academic content such as math, science, social studies and specialist courses such as art, computer, science, and physical education may also be taught in the target language. In recent years, an increasing number of ELL students have chosen to enroll in these programs. Therefore, the ELL department has provided the appropriate services for these students.
Two-Way Immersion Programs
Two-way immersion programs (TWI) programs serve both language minority and language majority students in the same classroom and use each group of students’ first language for academic instruction at certain points during the program. The aim is for all students to become bilingual, biliterate and culturally proficient in both the majority and partner cultures. The cognitive, academic, and linguistic benefits of these programs fully appear after 5th or 6th grade.
