Armenian Dual Language Immersion Program

In response to community interest, PUSD will begin offering an Armenian bilingual high school option with a global approach through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, thereby expanding PUSD’s bilingual and bi-literacy offerings. 

  • The new Armenian Immersion Program will offer the following classes in 2020-21: Armenian I, Armenian II, Armenian III, Armenian IV (subject to minimum student enrollment).
  • As the program expands, PUSD plans to offer additional courses including Armenian Literature and Armenian History and Culture. 
  • Current PUSD students must submit an application between April 6th-20th, 2020 to enroll in the program. 
  • New to PUSD resident students and out-of-district students may apply online between April 6th -August 6th, 2020. Additional requirements are posted on PUSD's Open Enrollment website.

“This is a unique opportunity to expand PUSD’s bilingual and biliteracy academic options that now include our district’s first high school Armenian Dual Language Immersion Program,” said Superintendent Brian McDonald. “The commitment that the parents and community have demonstrated by establishing a program that encourages families to remain in PUSD is remarkable, and I am pleased to welcome them to PUSD.”
