How does it work?
Students begin their immersion experience in kindergarten or first grade in the 2019-2020 school year, with a grade being added as each class continues to the next school year.*
Students will be taught to read, write, and converse in Spanish by being immersed in the Spanish language throughout the school day. All core subject areas (other than English) will be taught in the Spanish language Kinder through second grade.
Teaching of English-only skills will be integrated daily through English language arts (Kindergarten through second), and beginning in third grade, through core subject areas such as social studies, science, religion or math. Students will have instruction daily in both languages.
In grades five through eight, possibilities include transitioning into a secondary continuing immersion experience that will allow students to further build academic vocabulary in Spanish while still changing classes and interacting with their English only classmates.
*Other grades will be considered depending interest. Contact the school for more information.
