Our Dual Language Program

Our Dual Language Program is a form of bilingual education that seeks to have students achieve academically while developing fluency in two different languages.  Our students come from either Spanish-speaking, English-speaking homes and/or bilingual homes.  In the classrooms, our children are both students and teachers, serving as linguistic models for each other.

The program is designed to affirm our student’s cultural identity while developing an appreciation for and familiarity with the cultures of others. Their bilingualism and cross-cultural competency facilitates their ability to critically evaluate the world in which they live. It enhances opportunities for students to advocate for themselves, and their communities, as they work towards becoming active agents of change and global citizens.
