What is the Two-Way Bilingual Immersion Program?
The Two-Way Bilingual Immersion Program brings together students from English and Spanish language backgrounds to learn academic content through instruction in both languages. All students are provided with a standards based curriculum with a focus in bilingual academic achievement.
To achieve the goal of bilingual literacy, long term parental commitment is necessary to ensure that students remain in the program from Kindergarten through Sixth grade. To further promote success; students from both language backgrounds are integrated, leading to high levels of academic, social, and linguistic development.
Over the years, students in a Two-Way Bilingual Immersion program not only achieve a high level of bilingual proficiency, but also become biliterate, acquiring academic content knowledge and skills in both languages. Students that participate in the program typically achieve high levels of proficiency on both district and state assessments.
