Bilingual Education Programs
At Humble ISD, our bilingual education programs foster the acquisition of Spanish and English, through One-Way and Two- Way Dual Language programs and the Transitional Late Exit Bilingual Program.
One-Way and Two-Way Spanish Dual Language Programs
The goal of the Dual Language Programs is to help students become bilingual, biliterate and bicultural while promoting high academic achievement. Students in the Dual Language Programs develop an appreciation and a cross-cultural understanding of others.
The One-Way Dual Language Program teaches biliteracy to Emergent Bilinguals in all the core content areas of Reading, Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies.
The Two-Way Dual Language Program is a biliteracy program model that integrates native Spanish speakers and native English speakers in a mixed group setting to learn both languages in the core content areas of Reading, Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies.
The Dual Language Programs provide students with the opportunity to obtain a Seal of Biliteracy Performance Acknowledgement upon graduation while preparing for college, career and life choices.

Bilingual Late Exit Transitional Program
In the Bilingual Late Exit Transitional Program, students are taught basic concepts with primary language support as they transition to an all English program. Research shows that students solid in first-language academic skills gain second language skills more easily. Students in the bilingual programs are provided with instruction in English and the percentage of English increases as the students move from Pre-K to fifth grade. Students in a bilingual education program may exit in grades 2-5 if they demonstrate proficiency in English listening, speaking, reading and writing skills as measured by state-exit criteria. These programs are housed at eight elementary schools in Humble ISD:
Jack Fields Elementary (Prek-5)
Lakeland Elementary (Prek-5)
North Belt Elementary (Prek-5)
Oak Forest Elementary (K-5)
Park Lakes Elementary (Prek-5)
Ridge Creek Elementary (Prek-5)
River Pines Elementary (Prek-5)
Timbers Elementary (Pre-K only)
