Our Dual Language model affords all students the opportunity to become bilingual and bi-literate. We offer both 1-Way and 2-Way Dual Language implementation. The 1-Way model is our bilingual program offered to English language Learners (ELLs), while the 2-Way model is offered to our English dominant students who wish to become bilingual and bi-literate. The 2-Way model includes both native Spanish and native English speakers in the same classroom, both learning language through content (Language Arts, Science, Social Studies and Math). Dual Language, whether 1-Way or 2-Way, equally values, validates and incorporates both languages in the curriculum and the school as a whole.
All campuses offer English as a Second Language to students who speak a language other than English. Certified ESL teachers provide sheltered instruction to ensure comprehension of the content as well as developing English language proficiencies.
Our district goal is to provide programs which have educational, cognitive, economic and socio-cultural benefits for our students as individuals as well as members of our community.
