Dual Language Program
Dual Language is an educational model that integrates native English speakers and native Spanish speakers in a mixed group setting, with the goals of promoting high academic achievement, first-and-second-language development and cross-cultural understanding for all students. In the Dual Language program, language learning takes place primarily through content instruction. Academic subjects are taught to all students through both English and the non-English language. As students and teachers work together to perform academic tasks, the students’ language abilities are developed along with their knowledge of content area subject matter.
