About Dual Language Education

Dual language education is an effective approach to develop language proficiency and literacy in two languages. The program integrates English speakers and Spanish speakers for academic content instruction through both languages. Students in the Dual Language program learn together and learn from each other, as they share their language and cultural resources.
