Dual Language Immersion programs bring together native English speakers and native speakers of another language in a unique opportunity for both groups to learn a second language. Students are taught in English for 50% of the day and in Spanish or Mandarin for the other 50% of the day. Interactive lessons encourage students from both language groups to help each other understand, speak, read, and write one another's home language. All students gain a second language in this enriched educational environment. Learn more about academic programs for English learners.
