Dual Immersion

 

Welcome to Dual Immersion

This program offers a rich bilingual experience for young learners when their minds are developmentally able to acquire a second language. Our program follows the Utah State Dual Language Model in which the day is divided between two classrooms for fifty percent of the time.  In this model, students spend half of their day in Spanish and the other half in English.  Our program begins in first grade and is currently offered through sixth grade.  From first grade to third grade (see instructional minutes pie charts), the Spanish curriculum includes instruction in literacy and the majority of the content subjects (math, science, and social studies) The English curriculum focuses on English language arts, Core Knowledge, and some collaborative reinforcement of the content taught in Spanish. The curriculum shifts in the fourth and fifth grade, as most instruction in math and social studies, are taught in English.  These curriculum changes in the upper grades allow for more instructional time in Spanish, focusing on literacy study and increasing student proficiencies.

ENROLLMENT FOR THE 2017-2018 DUAL IMMERSION PROGRAM IS CLOSED.
