The district's Dual Language Program compliments our magnet theme and offers students the opportunity to be taught in two languages: English and Spanish. Students are in regular integrated classrooms--1/2 are from English speaking homes and 1/2 are from Spanish speaking homes. This ensures that students will be able to speak, understand, read and write in English and Spanish by sixth-grade. Students must enter into the Dual Language Program in Kindergarten.
Advantages of the Program
- Students will be bilingual
- Students will have a marketable skill
- Research shows that students that are bilingual do better academically
- Students do not have to wait until seventh-grade to learn another language.
Students have the option to continue the Dual Language Program throughout the magnet pathway.
