Dual Language Immersion

  • teacher with students reading books  

    The programs begin in kindergarten with 90% of instruction in the foreign language. Gradually the instruction shifts to 50% in English and 50% in the target language, prompting the student to master academic subjects in both languages.

    The Dual Language Immersion Program launched in 2008 and expands to higher grades each year.
