Dual Language Immersion
Laveen’s newest school, opening in August 2016, will offer a dual language program in Spanish.
Parents will have the option of placing their kindergarten-age students in a classroom where some subjects are taught in English for half of the day, and other subjects are taught in Spanish the other half. If there is sufficient interest, the option may be available for first graders, as well. The program will add a grade each year, so it will eventually be available K-8.
The benefits of Dual Language Immersion include:
- Students develop oral, reading, and writing proficiency in two languages.
- Students typically meet or exceed the academic performance of students in monolingual English classrooms.
- Students are better prepared to engage in a global society that values cultural and linguistic diversity.
Please note: Dual Language Immersion is only offered to students in kindergarten and first grade beginning in 2016.
