What?

Students will achieve academic excellence (in Spanish and English) becoming bilingual, biliterate and bicultural.

Why?

-Language learning challenges mental development

-Language learning prepares students for the demands of the 21st century

How?

This program affords students the opportunity to learn both the Spanish and English languages in a proficient manner. The program reflects the 90:10 model where the instructional day consists of 90% Spanish and 10% English in Kindergarten. Each year, the amount of English instruction increases by 10% and Spanish instruction decreases by 10%. By the time students are in the fourth grade, they are instructed 50% of their day in English and 50% of their day in Spanish. At the secondary level, instruction consists of approximately 30% Spanish and 70% English instruction.
