Dear Parents,

Join us to get information about the Dual Language Program at the middle school level.  You will learn about the benefits of having your student continuing in the program to attain full biliteracy.

What is a dual language program?

A Dual Language Education Program integrates native English speaking students with native Spanish speaking students for content and language instruction. 

Basic features

Dual Language classrooms develop bilingual and bi-literate students who are able to achieve high academic achievement, language acquisition and proficiency in both English and Spanish. The program offers cross-cultural connections and cultural literacy. The Dual Language Program provides an environment that embraces diversity and strives for excellence.
