Program Model

Students are instructed throughout the day in three different groupings and two different environments. Each grade level has two teachers: an English-dominant teacher and a Spanish-dominant teacher. Throughout the day students interact in both environments.
Benefits of this teaching/learning model include:

  • Students will develop strong skills in their native language while acquiring a second language
  • Students and families interact and form friendships, promoting cultural diversity
  • Teaching model is research-based and proven to be successful
  • Continuing staff development
  • Opportunity for success in two languages
  • Differentiated instruction in both languages
  • Scaffolded and sheltered lessons incorporating the most successful research-based principles
  • Bilingualism offers many opportunities for the FUTURE!
