Our Dual Language Program

In January 2023, U.S. Education Secretary Miguel Cardona announced the U.S. Department of education’s “Raise the Bar: Lead the World” initiative, emphasizing the need for schools to provide opportunities for students to learn multiple languages. Research shows that early exposure to multilingual programs positively impacts cognitive and social development.

Dual Language classes are composed of a balanced number of students in each class who are native Spanish speakers and native English speakers. Instruction is held in both languages by two teachers, who deliver the literacy and grade-level academic content standards in all subject areas. Students will also participate in specials, such as music, gym, art and digital literacy, which are only taught in English.
