Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS A DUAL LANGUAGE IMMERSION PROGRAM?

Dual Language Immersion (DLI) programs allow students to learn academic content (English, Math, Science, and Social Studies) while learning to speak, read and write in another language at the same time. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Students are taught the same curriculum as their peers in English-only programs, but in DLI at least half of instruction is presented in a second language. Half of the students are English learners while half are native English speakers. Cohorts of students remain together during the program, which encourages deep friendships and provides stability.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR OUR STUDENTS?

DLI students academically outperform their peers in English-only programs. DLI students were also found to have high levels of self-esteem and motivation. DLI students are better prepared for the global job market where a second language gives them a competitive edge!

HOW DO I ENROLL MY CHILD?
